Default XK '10 - rear wheel lug broke off, can I replace just the lug?

Hello,

Was walking out to my car and noticed a lug nut missing from passenger rear wheel. I had my mechanic order a new lug nut but when I went to put it on I realized that the whole lug had broken off. When he tried to order a couple new lugs (one to test the break point and the other to repair) the dealer told him that the lug isn't individually available, that I have to order the whole hub. That seems ridiculous and wrong. Anyone here know if it's true? If not, where can I get just a couple replacement lugs?

Thanks!

Brian.

Parts book unfortunately shows the hub only.

There are dealers on the web that can sell you whatever lug you need but you will need the size . But before you do this you or someone needs to remove the wheel and caliper and brake rotor to get down to the hub. Once there you would need to see how the lugs are assembled in the hubs. Most are press fit with a serrated type lug at the base. If you can see the old stud is pressed in then you would need to either drill it out or press it out. If it is installed any other way then press fit then you would most likely need to get a new hub. Good luck

I had the same problem with my "07 XK. The brake caliper will need to be removed to access the removal and installation of the new stud, additionally, the outer 'axle housing" will need to be "unbolted" for access. The stud is serrated & pressed. Furthermore, the replacement stud is the same used as on a "Ford Thunderbird" ( newer model). I originally received that information directly from the parts man at a Jag dealership, he had one in stock. Worked fine. Saved bucks. Cool tip.

Correct it's a standard Ford part. Also the Lincoln LS wheel stud might be easier to find than the T-bird part but they are all the same.

I had a lug nut seize due to being cross-threaded when last installed. To remove it, I had to drill it out with a bit one size larger than the diameter of the stud ... therefore I ruined the stud. I just went to my local Jag dealer's Parts Dept. and bought a new stud, part number C2S50885, for ... $4.78!

I'm sure there are different grades of the one piece lug nuts, and I have only had mine on my XKR for a little while, but I swapped out on my other cars years ago with both chrome and black one piece. All look to be about as good as when purchased. I do not believe thy were Gorilla, but were from an online dealer stateside. They were also substantially less money than Gorilla and retail.

My beef is with the 2 piece design. The reason they were used by Jaguar (Ahh Ford, coincidentally, the other 2 piece designs I have had trouble with were on Fords) may be sound, but I have had the soft metal caps pop off and even spin on the nut several times, but never had a problem with a wheel popping off (or any problem removing fro maintenance) that had aftermarket 1 piece hardened steel lug nuts.

Would assume the stock lug wrench would work for any new 19mm 1 piece solid lugnut replacements. The jack is not the best as the only time i used it the base folded a bit and is now off balance. Once you do get the stock 2 piece lug nuts off, use a little anti-sieze compound on the new lugnuts when you put them on. They will likely come of easier if/when you are on the roadside changing a flat. I tend to remove and clean (rotate on some vehicles) wheels at regular intervals (oil change, detailing, etc). This way,the wheels and lug nuts will be less likley to e stuck due to time. Also, check condition of spare. I found out the hard way on my way to a hockey game playoff that the stem on my spare had a leak. Inspecting this along with regular maintenance is also good practice. Wpould be best to get 19mm, but if larger nut is used, a breaker bar and appropriate deep impact socket in the trunk would be recommended.
