1994 Toyota Camry

I had to replace the rear brake pads on my 94 Camry over the weekend in when taking the wheel off I managed to break 2 of the wheel studs (courtesy of the Sears "experts" who managed to cross thread the lug nuts). The studs broke flush with the surface. I've never had to replace something like this before. Are the broken ones screwed in or just tapped in? In another words, do I just tap them out, then slide the new ones in? Do I have to dissasemble anything to accomplish this or will there be enough clearance to work with everything still mounted?

Thanks,

On the Camry, you'll have to remove the caliper and rotor. The studs have a splined shank that is a press fit into the hub. Knock the broken ones out, a hammer and punch will usually work. The new ones can be pulled through with a regular tapered lug nut, flat side to the hub. I'd move the Tahoe question to a new thread...

Thanks. Anything special on removing the rotor? It looks like it just slides in, nothing seems to hold it.
I'll give it a try as soon as I have some time.
I have to say that this car has the easiest brake changing procedure I've seen. Took me less then 5 minutes to change the pads on each side.

Rotor should be slide-on.

Common sense escaped me...

Thanks

I'll probably tackle this during the weekend. This car has ABS, although I don't think it will make the problem any more difficult. The ABS doesn't work anyway, but that's a different story...
