Not off the top of my head.

I always have a random assortment of lose nuts/bolts in my tool chest. I just start trying to thread them in. If it works with just my fingers, its good to go.

Super easy, I did mine myself. Figure out your size, go to the auto shop and ask for a replacement lug stud. Then go down the lugnut aisle and there should be a set of 5-6 big washers (that's how you tighten it down). Jack your car up, take off the wheel, caliper and rotor. Once those are off, turn the wheel (you may have to jack up the other side for this) until there's open area behind the bad stud. Bang it out with a hammer, put the new one in, put the washers on and then the lug nut and tighten it down until it's all the way in. Sounds more involved than it really is. As long as you know how to take off a tire, caliper and rotor it's a breeze.

It just isn't turning out to be that easy. for starters the bottom caliper bolt will not budge, secondly I went and purchased 2 8 mm bolts with a 1.0 thread pitch and they don't thread into my rotor so i dunno whut too do about that. I know for a fact the rotors will be crudded in place and without those rotor bolts too push the rotor off even if I manage to crack the caliper bolts it will be for nott. I can not afford the ridiculous prices a garage wants so i might just end up saying fakk it and just drive around with a defective front wheel stud. I am gonna try one more time to atleast get the caliper off and see if i can beat the hell out of the rotor and get it to come off but only time will tell.

Well I have managed to getter dunn !
Having a chronic respiratory condition and being so fat really hampers efforts in doing things. BUTT I have managed to change out the damaged wheel stud on my car and everything is back together...groan. the seized caliper bolts really hampered the process. but being too pig headed to give up I have won this round .this is the first thing that has ever gone wrong with my Subaru in almost 5 years and it isn't the cars fault. Oh well hopefully good for another 5 years. I know i am gonna pay for this tomorrow when i attempt to get outah bed,
And either the bolt house sold me the wrong bolts or those threads on the rotor are not 8 mm with a 1.0 thread pitch ?
Regardless I am too unhealthy and too old for this nonsense so I hope my XV is good 2 go for a long time .
