I was hoping to ask for some help on my 1996 Z28 which just popped one of it's wheel studs if you guys would be kind enough to help out..?
I rotated my wheels and when tightening the wheel nuts one of the bolts (driver side rear) broke. Not a problem I thought and went to the dealer to purchase a new stud. Got that in hand and returned home for the replacement. Whoa boy...not so fast.... it would appear that the side shaft would have to be removed to complete this fix and that there might actually be some press work involved as whell. Is this something that can be done at home or will I have to trust my local GM dealer to do the fix for me?
Also, how on earth do you replace the spark plugs on a 1996 Camaro if you can see them..? [img]graemlins/clonk.gif[/img]
Thanks for your help guys....
Don't know about the '96 rear but my '67's, 12 bolt has enough room to knock the broken half out and start a stock one so that I can get some washers and a nut on it and pull it into the axle flange like it should be... pdq67
Thanks pdq67, thats what I had in mind myself but there's a gearlike unit in the way....guess it's part of the odometer sensor. So much so that one can not even get the broken bolt out let alone replace the new one. I'd sure hate to do even more damage than what i've done to date and that's why I figured on asking for some help from you know how guys....
Guess thats what I get for buying my 96 before I got my 69 (that's planned for the near future) right? I'm hoping there's someone that's done this before as I would sure hate to take my car to a dealer. Kinda have my heart set on doing it myself since I'm the one that broke it you know....
How did you break the stud? If you are greasing them, they are way over tight and can easily break or crack a rim. Just thought I would mention this as many people grease the studs, and they never reach the correct torque. They break first.
