spun wheel stud
 
I was tightening the lug nuts back on rear wheels and one the wheel studs pressed out. The lug nut is pretty well on the stud. Trying to figure out how to get the lug nut off or how to press the stud back in. Any help would be very much appreciated.

If you loosen the other lug nuts, will the bad stud pull on thru? You can then remove the wheel and stud together.

Never seen one pull thru the axle. Most get stripped. Were you using a torque wrench?

It did pull through it pressed out the back side of the wheel

I'm a little confused now lol. So a stud PULLED thru the axle flange and is still on the wheel yet ?

sorry guys this was a little confusing. The stud basically uninstalled itself, I was able to get the spinning lug nut off and made a long spacer to put on the stud then tightened down which pulled the stud back into place. All ended well/ :icon_clapclap::icon_clapclap::icon_clapclap:

Those are pressed into the axle flange.....it takes a pretty hard hit to knock them out the back side....as in trying to remove one is a bit difficult. Wonder why yours was so loose.
