I was putting on my winter tires…. and well I stripped 2 studs … in the rear driver side wheel.. and … messed up two mag locks…… The hub I had replace not to long ago..(Wheel bearing) My understanding is that you can press these out and buy new studs ? has any one done this or attempted this at all ?


Anyhow its looks like this... X is the mag locks that are on and O' is the stripped ones :D maybe I'll get lucky and the wheel will fly off :D

I've not done it on an Escort... but I've done it on other cars. Fairly simple process: Remove the brake drum (or rotor), push out the old (bad) stud, and press in a new one.

I work at a Sears AutoCenter and we do this stuff all the time.

Just take the assembly (wheel bearing) or drum or whatever off...

just take a good sized hammer and a screw driver or whatever and pound out the remainder of the studs. Put new ones in and tap them in securely then re-assemble.

they are supposed to be pressed out and in with a big hydraulic press. Hammering them out is fine but I don't know if you could press the new ones in far enough that way. Not saying you can't, just not sure.
