Hey guys,

I managed to snap the wheel stud on my 97 Scoupe and i got happy when i heared that it was a simple job to replace the stud - thats until i realised i had captive rotors :(

Am i able to take just the front part off by removing the 4 bolts or is it a job where the whole rotor assembly has to be taken apart and is best left to the mechanics ??

Cheers

yeah, cant be rooted - its going to the shop today.

I have a really bad feeling that when the mechanic rotated my tyers he cross threaded the nut that broke off and hence caused all the issues.

Fingers crossed he fixes it up for free

using a rattle gun can do it! which is the likely case and yes you do have to remove the whole rotor assembly the studs are press fitted from behind

My dealer said that it wasnt necessary to completely remove the hub to replace the stud, I suggest going to your local dealer (you know, someone who should be intimately familiar with our odd-duck brake setup) and see what they can do about it before you take it back to the shop you think screwed up.
