Default Chasing thread on stripped wheel stud

Ok, 2 of my front right wheel studs are stripped. One of them isn't so bad and I can still put a lug nut on. One of them I can't. I am going to use a die to chase the thread. The instructions mention using a "cutting oil" to lubricate the stud. I didn't see any "cutting oil" at my local NAPA. What else can I use to lubricate it?

If the threads are totally gone, a die won't help, you need to replace the stud. Dies are good for cleaning threads or repairing threads that are just starting to strip, but if the threads are mostly or totally gone, you need to just replace the stud.

Yeah I would like to do that eventually. Maybe when I change the rotors and pads as well.

You can get cutting oil at your local hardware store.

Personally, studs are so cheap I would just go ahead and replace the thing. It will probalby be cheaper than buying a die to chase it with.

But on the front of a 3rd-gen you have to press the hub out of the steering knuckle. That means you need a new wheel bearing. Now it isn't so cheap any more...

Exactly, I have never worked on the brakes before and when I do change the stud, I'm just going to take the hub to a shop to get it pressed out, replace the bearings and get new rotors while I'm at it. Just had the idea to chase the thread as a temporary fix.

And I already have the die.

You should find cutting oil at places that sell taps & dies... If you really can't find it just use motor oil or even wd-40. It's not the best, but DON'T cut it dry.

Check out the stud carefully. If enough of the thread material is GONE, then it isn't gonna be very strong. You might want to drive as if you believe your wheel might fall off...

knock the wheel stud out with a hammer...although Im really not sure if there is enough room behind the spindle, but in front of the hub to knock it out, but either way, its like a 15 minute job and will be much easier to do then threading it. BTW, I have an extra wheel stud if you need one.

It's one stud people, the wheel isn't going to fall off with one lugnut missing. You don't have to baby it, just make sure the rest of them are tight

no but your rotor will warp due to it not being torqued down properly.

making sure the rest of them are tight won't do anything. And yes it can fall off from one missing. I've seen it happen. The car is designed to have 4 on there. Not three. Can you get away with it for a little while? Probably. Is it a good idea? NO

As for pressing the hub out to replace the stud. Are you sure that there isn't enough room. I don't ever remember having to do that on a single car. Some were pretty tight, but it was always possible. I could have swore I replaced my 95 integra stud w/o any problems. And the hub can be pressed out without tearing the bearing up. It wouldn't even need to be pressed out all the way. Just enough to squeek the stud in.
