Broke A Wheel Stud...

Not my picture.

...while swapping wheels on Saturday. I have to say, having never broken a stud before, it was quite easy to replace. Once you remove the brake caliper and disc, it’s as simple as gently knocking out the old one and pulling the new one into place. I used a stack of washers, but I’m thinking of picking up this:


Not because I need it, as I got by without it, but I love specialized tools.

Also, seeing as myself and the friend I was working with needed to go for a parts run to get the stud, I now have a few spares in my tool box, just in case...

Anyone else have a good weekend project, expected or otherwise?
