Hub Bolt Loose?

Hi,

I bought a new steering kunkle at a junkyard for my civic.
Well everything is good on it except that one of the 4 hub bolts where the lugs bolt on to hold the rim on is loose.
You can spin it freely and push it back and forth.
The other 3 are perfect. Right now I am driving around with this.
How do I fix this? If I was to take it to a mechanic how much do you think he would charge to fix it for me?
THanks

Easy fix. Just take the car to any tire shop & they can replace the stud for about $10-20.

If the stud has merely come loose, put the tire on, put the nut on, and tighten it up.
That'll re-seat it.
You only need to replace it if it has actually broken off...or if the other three have broken, and you suspect it'll be next.

PS-It's a lot harder to replace the ones on the front.
PPS-I drove around the country for 9 months with a broken stud...fix it, but don't lose any sleep over it.
