Hey all. Just wondering if studs can be replaced on the front rotors on an EB?

Little mishap tonight resulting in a broken stud & rim in 2.

From a bump in the road.
Cheers Guys.

A) take photo's of the bump in the road afaik the RTA is liable in that regard,
B) yes you can replace studs go to your local tyre place or auto store and you should be able to buy one, take your rotor off "press out" the broken stud and "press in" the new one.. easy as pie afaik.

FBH and a drift will knock the remains of the old stud out, to fit the new one, pop it through the hole and tighten the nut up, it'll pull the stud in

also, if the impact was severe enough to break 2 studs, i'd be replacing all of them, not just the broken one

All fixed. But got a couple of spares just incase.
It was just the 1 that snapped.
Hope they're all good tho.

Cheers, Trav

as Moffatghia said, replace all of the studs on that corner. whats to say they all dont have strees fractures that you cant see, better to be safe.

if you end up getting pics of the bump post them up.
