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)?
please help!

tried nothing on at the moment. could try another 2 ford dealers less local than vospers cos apparently its their choice wether they do studs and they are available if the dealers parts sept feels like it!

contacting a couple of mail order pattern part sites tomorrow.]

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.
