    Cross threaded one of the lug bolts on my tire carrier (don't ask me how but I did). Wondering if I could use a die kit to re-thread or just get a new lug bolt. If I go the lug bolt route are the lugs pressed into the carrier or can it out with a hammer (after I remove the carrier from the gate.)

    Just goto auto parts store, buy METRIC M14x1.5 DIE-fix
    Always "FINGER" START LUG NUTS BEFORE USING AIR/ELEC IMPACT WRENCH

    Good luck

    It's easy go slow and keep.backing it off and then go forward. Use some wd40, or similar.

    I just cross threaded mine taking the lug off. Not even putting it on. Did you ever find out if you can just replace the stud?
