Default Replacing a wheel stud

Has anyone ever had it done? i called Bell Tire and they charge 10 for the part and 35 for the labor. does that sound reasonable or am i being taken...

its for my girlfriends car, not the bonnie, but i figured that this would be the best place for it being it could apply just as easy to a bonnie.

Depends on what kind of car she has. On a Bonneville, that'* outrageous. You just tap the old one out of the hub and insert the new one. AutoZone sells the wheel studs for ~$4, IIRC. I had to do it on my 93 Bonnie a couple years ago.

Unless this Bonneville related, this is for the Lounge...

tapping out.. that makes it sound easy to do.. sometimes they do not like to just tap out..

sometimes you may have to press it out, or tourch it..

It'* easy on the Bonneville. We had to do one on my 91 SSE. I made the Ford place do Jeff'* for free because they swapped over rims from his previous car to his new car and didn't tighten the lugnuts enough on one tire. He had a problem with the car and we discovered that they were only finger tightened. I called the General Manager of the dealership and bitched him a new behind and they replaced all the studs and lugnuts on that tire for free.
