Alright so we’re going to switch out the lug nut studs on this car. You can see that this one has just snapped completely off.
These little grooves right here, which help it stay in once it’s in, keep it from goingin all the way. So if you have a clean shot at it from the back, you can tap it a couple times with ahammer. You just want to make sure that it comes out perpendicular to the metal part here. Learn how to style a bookcase with these simple tricks. Line the back of the bookcase with decor… What I’m going to do right now is see if I can just pull it through using one of mynuts right here. If you get a washer and stick it around the edge, it will make it so that the nut can pull it through all the way instead of getting caught right here where the threads stop. Cuz once the nut gets to here, you can’t pull it through anymore because there areno more threads to grab onto.
So I’m going to grab some washers, put it around there and just pull it through. Instead of finding washers I actually found this little hook right here that has a bigcircle on the end that as I rotate this, it pulls the stud through…the lug stud. So I’m just going to keep on tightening this down until it’s all the way flush withthe back of the metal. Taking a wrench that was slightly bigger than the lug stud, slipping it on, plus the littlemetal ring. And also just remember that the washers would do just as good of a job as this, I just didn’twant to run to the store. And it has it pulled flush against the back just like these other ones are. And that is it.
Now I can just pop this off. And the magical contraption worked. So you want to do this without the tire in place, cuz if you put the tire on and thentry to tighten it through here, you’re going to end up damaging the rim. Anyway, that’s it. That’s how you change a lug stud on a car.
