Did a quick search and found one thread, but wanted to double check for my 00 OBW. Are the studs press fit and is it an easy venture to replace?

probably easier to buy a die and chase the threads, that should clean them up just fine. then you'll have that die for when your next stud gets cracked up, as soon as you feel the lug nuts get tigth, chase them and all is good. or chase them all and feel how wonderfully smooth they'll spin on/off.

the studs are press fitted into the hub. access is the pain, the back plates, calipers and not many access holes through the rear make it a less than desirable job. but it is possible with enough patience in the older roos. hold the stud in place, grab it and start threading the nut on it. thread the nut on (without a wheel in place) to seat and pull the stud through the hub.
