NO NEED TO REMOVE THE BEARING
just hit the old studs that you are replacing with a hammer to drive them out the back
there is enough roome at the rear of the hub to install the new studs
I had to cut it to get it out
grinder w/thin grinding wheel
use a punch,,and drive it out
it will knock right out
dont be afraid to hit it
we are talking about the wheel stud
what the lug nut goes on
you can dive it out,,with a punch and hammer
so that will just beat the hell out of the splash guard
and it won't harm the new threads?
turn the hub to where you will have an opening
for it to come out of the rear
it will damage the threads..but we dont care
so there's a slot?
you are going to replace it
with a new stud
yes, worried bout new threads
on the old stud?why
the new stud will insert from the rear of the hub
on the NEW stud
but the thread won't get f'd up?
use the lug nut to pull it into place
you dont beat the new one in
can't see it
use the lug nut
install it on the new stud
and tighten it
it will pull the stud in
I know how to install lug nuts that are easily accessible
I just don't think there's room there
You say there is so I will try
yes,,i do it all the time
I did 6 studs on a 99 windstar today and there's clearance on that one easily,
I know how to do them but I swear there is not room, but I will try tomorrow w/your expert advice
there is a certain spot to where you can turn the hub,,that they will come out/...
like I said I cut the one out and couldn't get the other one nearly in
look at the spindle
yeah I've seen that on certain other hondas
yours should also
didn't see anything that looked like it was giving clearance
are you looking at it now?
but it is the bearing housing that is stopping it
from going in?
did your housing not have a spot to where it will come out?
by turning the hub?
didn't see anything like that
it's identical to the diagram you put up
i am looking for a better picturee
but i dont have it
no sweat, I will try it
but..it should come out and go in
can't picture it
i cant picture it not
cut the old one out and the new one was not nearly clearing
how much does it like,,,just a little of the head catching?
the 6 that I installed after not being able to get these came w/the angle
and I don't think that would make a diff at all
give me just a minute
but I will try tomorrow and report back
take your time
i am going to check something
i may be wrong on yours
thanks anyway, so the bearings gotta go?
the bearing will need to be removed
i gave you bad info
on this certain civic
Honda Civic/Del Sol 1996-2000
Replacing a front wheel lug stud will require removal of the front steering knuckle from the vehicle and replacement of the axle nut. In addition to replacing the axle nut, on some Civic and Civic del Sol models, the front wheel bearing must be replaced, as the front hub is pressed into the bearing. On these models, the hub must be pressed out of the bearing to allow enough room for the wheel lug stud to be removed from and installed into the hub.
To replace a front wheel lug stud proceed as follows:
On some models of the Civic and Civic del Sol you may have to unbolt the hub sub-assembly from the knuckle.
i made it right
lol, thanks for the info
you are very welcome
I will let you go and talk to you later
no need to rate...on the house
I was just trying to read what they got here, thanks again catch ya later
