If you enjoy fixing cars, I hope you have a computer and access to the Internet.  The World Wide Web is a great source of how-to information for the home mechanic.  Last night my son Jesse and I fixed his car.  Jesse had noticed that he had two lug nut studs broken off.  Numberous Internet sites covered thisd repair.  Though somewhat different in detail, they all recommended pressing or tapping the old and broken studs free. Then, you insert new studs, slip two large washers over them and pull the studs into position with the original lug nuts.  By following the instructions on the Internet, we had the job completely dine in under two hours.  The total cost was about $4.50 for the new lugs.   What we saved in labor will easily pay next month’s bill for Internet service.
