View Full Version : Ve wheel studs

27-01-2012, 11:50 AM
Hi there i am trying to change the rear L/H wheel studs on my VE clubby as 3 have snapped, i have removed the disk brake and caliper to find the studs are still fixed. wondering if i have to undo the boot at the back of it as it looks like it might be cv set up there or something, or does the w**** axel have to come out???? Cheers for any help in this matter Russ

I don't have an answer to your question but

funny you are having a similar problem to me except one of my studs is spinning free with the nut still locked on.

This happened this morning when I was getting new tyres fitted at Tyreplus in Surrey Hills Melb and

they said it was over tightened which caused the problem and cannot get if off without doing damage to my rim,

so I booked in to holden for tomorrow morning to get it off and replaced.

A lot of stuffing around with extra costs, I was so looking forward to my new tyres after months of research, recommendations and great help from the guys on this forum on tyre choices
but I guess I'll have to wait till next week.

Hope things go well for you.

Hi James,
Ouch was that for only 1 stud???? i'm still stuck up on jackz as no-one can seem to tell me how to get the stub axel off so i can get at the wheel studs. i think this tread was a waste of ppl's time and mine was a shame as i had lots and lots of ppl tell me this site would solve my problem in 5mins flat that was nearly 3days ago now hahaha

Sorry to hear that
yes one stud one hour.
Try calling holden and ask to speak to a mechanic for advice.
