apparently ford now only supply hub, wheel studs and bearing together for £238.44 +vat! so if u need a stud that probably would have cost about £3 it now costs nearly 100 times that amount for the bit u need and some bits u dont!
does anyone know where i could get a wheel stud for a mkiii nondeo lx (54 plate)?

yeah if the mail order specialists and 2 remaining dealers wont play ball!
cannot believe vospers want me to pay nearly £300 for hub bearing unit with studs when it must be a hundred times the price thay would sell a single stud which is all i need. words fail me otherwise the administrators would probably have words with me!

As said Chris, a breakers yard is your best option.
