    befor eyou start whacking at it, you will need to spin it. there should be a () at the top in the back where it can be pushed through.

    how do you install the new ones? someone told me to tighten a lug nut on it but that doesn't exactly seem right. <_<

    I used a lage C-clamp to press out the broken one and then stacked a coupla over-sized bolts over the new one, put the lug on and torqued it down. That pulled the new stud onto the hub. easy as pie!

    Good Luck! :spin:

    Take off the rotor. Look for two screws and pray that you can take them out. I had to use an impact wrench w/ a phillips head insert and it still took a LONG time. There are also two tapped holes. I threaded in two bolts against the hub and put some pressure on the screws. Maybe that helped, maybe it didn't, I dunno.

    Once you have the rotor off you should be able to press the stud out w/ a c-clamp or bang it out with a heavy hammer.

    Don't forget, installation is the reverse from removal!

    Actually I just did this on my Si the other day...replace three studs...two front and one rear. The rear was easy...just tapped it out and slipped the other one in a bit...I slipped a wrench over the stud, then put on a lug nut and pulled it in...it will snap in more when you put the tire on.
    The front was a little more difficult...I noticed when I took out the old broken ones that one side of the top of the stud was ground off...didn't know why...I bought new ones and they weren't ground off...then I discovered why...the spindle. So I took an air 'die grinder' and cut part of the top off...slipped them right in and tightened the same as the rear. (note...you have to remove the rotor and caliper to do this...and the drum for the rear.)

    Took maybe 20 minutes... B)
