Reader Question: Hi
I have a broken stud on one of my rear wheel hubs. The nut is still on the stud and just spins when I try to undo it. I have tried to find a way to cut it off or pull the nut so the stud grips and undoes but nothings working. I figure I might need to drill out the stud and nut… Any other ideas?
Hi there Chris
Go see a mechanic that has a air chisel. I have found that using a chisel to cut off the nut works best with least amount of damage to the wheel. A “cut off wheel” might also work good too if you have room for it and you don’t think it will come in contact with an expensive aluminum wheel. 🙁
