The rear wheel studs on a Toyota Celica hold the wheels to the suspension. Because the wheels come on and off with every tire change or when the wheels get changed, the studs have their lug nuts threaded on and off on a regular basis. Sometimes the wheel studs can get stripped, making it difficult or impossible to install a lug nut on the stud. Other times the stud breaks, leaving you with fewer studs holding on your wheel, which is dangerous. To fix the problem, you have to remove the wheel studs and replace them.

  1. 1

    Lift up the rear end of the car using the jack and place it on jack stands. Unbolt the rear wheel lugs and take the wheels off of the back of the Celica.

  2. 2

    Unbolt the brake caliper from the rear suspension and hang it from the rear fender well using the bungee cord. Then slide the rear brake rotor off of the suspension with both hands.

  3. 3

    Place the rotor on the press so that the studs are pointed up toward the top of the press. Push down on the damaged or cut stud that you want to remove using the press until it pops out of the rotor.
