2001 BMW 530i lug nut broken off
I have a problem that I know has happened to someone in the past, but did not see any good links. It helps if people use titles that are relevant to what their questions might be instead of saying something like "big problem."
I was working on my car and removed the front wheel with no problems, but did notice the lug nuts were on EXTREMELY tight. Much more than the 120NM torque values. Unfortunately, the rear lug nuts were all removed with great effort, but one nut twisted off completely and is left in the wheel.
What's the best way to remove part of the lug nut bolt?
Drill it out, re tap the threads, replace the whole wheel hub?
