Default need new lug nut bolt - '99 Camry, rear drum brake

Subject says it all. While rotating tires, managed to ruin the
threads on a bolt the lug nut screws into. How hard is the bolt to
replace? Looking at the Haynes manual and I'm a bit confused. Must
the drum brakes come out too?

'99 Camry, rear tire, drum brakes (not disc brakes).

Thanks,

Michael

If I remember correctly, you'll have to remove the drum and press the old
bolt out. Then press a new one in. You can probably get them at AutoZone,
although they have been cutting back on the hardware they keep in stock.

Have a look at the condition of the shoes. Since you already have the drum
off anyway...

On "press it out"... hammer out with a mallet? Special tool?

Generally with a genuine press. You can hammer it out. If your luck is
like mine, you'll warp the drum...

The piece you are referring to is called a stud, not a bolt.

You should be able to tap it out with a brass hammer. Wear safety glasses
when you strike the stud. Rotate the flange the stud is mounted on so that
there is clearance behind the stud for when it is loose. When you install
the replacement stud, pull it back out with a lug nut.

So no need to remove any brake drums?

How would you look for clearance behind the stud, and how would yoy grasp
the stud and get the new one in the flange with the drum on ?

Hammering it out sounds like a very bad idea (easily to elongate the hole so
that a new stud won't fit in tightly). It would be better to use an actual
press...or at least try using a vise or two (slowly tightening the vise(s)
so as to act as a 'press').

You have to remove the brake drum to get access to the space behind the
flange that the studs are mounted in. To remove the drum, you may have to
back off of the brake adjuster through the oval opening, covered by an oval
rubber plug, on inboard side of the backing plate. After backing off the
adjuster, if the drum is still stuck, use 2 bolts in the threaded openings
on the outboard face of the drum, tightening the bolts alternately a few
turns at a time until the drum pops off.

Tap the shank of the stud to push it back in the hole. To replace the stud,
just use your fingers to push it as far as you can in the hole in the
flange, thread a lug nut on the new stud, and pull on the nut. You can put
a stack of washers on the stud, install the lug nut, and tighten the nut
until the stud pulls through all the way and seats itself.

How much torque does it take to twist off a Toyota lug bolt? I don't
think I've ever twisted off a Toyota lug bolt, they are pretty good
sized.
