Is this the front Hub?

Ask Your Own Ford Question

Okay you are going to need to remove the rotor and the hub and once you have the hub off all you need to do is smack the bad studs and the come out from the back side, then you install the new studs and use a hammer and a drift and pound the new studs back in place. Once the studs are back in place reinstall the hub and rotor and your all set.If you need the hub removal steps let me know.

I'm going to see if I don't have to remove the hub. But if I have to yes please send me the removal steps,thank you

See the steps in the link below, sometimes you can sneak the new stud in from behind with the hub in place if you have enough clearance.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
