Replace stripped rear wheel stud - how do you replace?
I just had new tires put on, and one of the rear wheel studs got stripped. I have a 2WD 2006 Base model, which makes the rear wheel disc different than a 4WD rear wheel disc. Does anyone have an idea how to replace a rear wheel stud? Any of the members have shop manual exploded view diagram that would detail how to replace the studs? I bought a stud at Pep Boys (Northeast USA Automotive store), only $2. But it looks like you have to use a jacking bolt possibly to remove the rotor/hub assembly. Any experience info would be appreciated, Thanks.
(BTW - got the tires at BJ's, and they don't replace stripped studs. Tires are BF Goodrich Long Trail T/A's - and appear to be a slightly taller looking tire than the original Yok's (which I got 83K miles on before replacing)
