Wheel Studs

Does anyone know of any issues with the wheel studs and/or nuts on Murano's?

I have a 2010 Murano SL AWD and have had several issues with finding broken studs. The first time the broken studs were found was after it caused a wheel to come off while driving. The Murano went to a shop earlier that day for a noise caused by a wearing hub bearing (the same wheel that came off). the other day I have found several that were so tight I almost couldn't loosen, and one was already broken off and missing. I don't know if someone installed them so tight it overstressed the studs, or if there was a known problem.

It looks like someone had their air gun cranked up too high when putting the tires back on. Very unusual, and I would be finding another garage to have do my work.


Have a good day.

Lug studs don't fail that way unless they have been BADLY overtightened. This is inexcusable for two reasons:

1) Any mechanic with two functioning brain cells knows that there are torque specs for wheels, and especially for the alloy wheels found on many modern cars. There is no excuse for not following those specs.

2) The only reason a wheel would get overtightened is that some moron used an impact wrench to install the alloy wheels. You NEVER EVER use an impact wrench to tighten alloy wheels unless there is a torque limiting device between wrench and nut.

It's possible that this damage occurred before the last visit to a tire shop, but unlikely. I would ask them to cover the cost of repairs, and of replacing all lug studs on all four corners.
