Montero rear wheel rim stud / bolt replacement

Montero rear wheel rim stud / bolt replacement

I have a 2003 full size Montero Limited (3.8 liter) with 6 studs / lugs on each wheel hub. *A back rear stud broke off exactly at the end of the lug as I was checking them yesterday. *There is about 1/2" of threaded stud remaining but I can't find a lug to grab that deep through the wheel rim stud hole. *Otherwise I'd do that for a temporary fix.

I took the wheel off, supported the brake caliper upwards/pulled off the rotor, and removed the rotor. *The brake shoe and associated spring pieces seem to be in the way of extracting the stud, however.

I think if I take the emergency brake apart and off there's enough room to drive the broken stud backwards and out to get the new stud in. *This right?

​​​​​​​The manual doesn't specify a specific procedure to replace a wheel bolt stud...so I wanted to be sure before I tear into it. *If I have to take the whole hub off, I'll need a couple of more hours of work time.

Is this how it goes for a single rear wheel stud removal/replacement? *How'd you do it? *This one stud is the only broken and worn piece so I hate to disassemble more than I need to. Thanks!

OK thanks. I was just wondering if removing the e-brake hardware actually gives enough room to back old studs out and get new ones in. It looks like it does, but I wasn't sure if missing something. I wish Mitz would have left enough room in one area of the e-brake to do this without taking out all the e-brake hardware! I don't like messing with those springs and meticulous parts...lol

Fix for Gen 3 Montero / Pajero rear wheel broken stud.

This was easy. *Took about 1.5 hours. *Taking my time and drinking beer with a friend, lol. *I removed the tire. *Removed brake caliper lower bolt and flipped caliper upward and wired to shock. *Removed disk (using the push out bolts, not sure of size). *I removed rear-most e-brake shoe at the top by unhooking shoe-to-anchor hook. *Removed the shoe retaining spring, and moved the shoe outward about 1". *Tapped old broken stud out. *Put in new stud, and about 1" of washers, and drew it in with an impact wrench until visually flush. *

​​​​​​​The hardest part was replacing the shoe to anchor spring without breaking it. *It took two people. *One person pushing with small needle nose pliers and me pulling with a pair of curved hook spring pliers that weren't specific for this vehicle. We got lucky. It popped away from pliers and just happened to pop onto the anchor and snap into the right place.

Make sure to check nuts after driving a few 100 miles.

The stud will settle a little bit.
