As the subject states, I've got an 1989 S10 pickup... 4wd, 4.3L, standard cab, extended bed. Through my own misadventure and idiocy I managed to break off all 5 wheel studs/lug nut posts for the front passenger tire. I've gotten as far as getting the axle nut off... and I cannot remove the ring that has the wheel studs mounted in it. I don't even know what the official name of this ring is... although I suspect it also holds the wheel bearings in place. I neither have a Chilton's, nor can I afford to purchase one.

Now, I get it that it would be really bad for me to just take a sledgehammer to the broken remnants of the wheel studs that are still in this ring, because that can't be good for the wheel bearings... so I know I have to remove this ring somehow. Am I going to need a gear puller or some other tool to do the job? Should it have just come off easily once that axle nut was removed? Again, the truck is an 89... I got it used (and cheap), and there could likely be damage or wear (or rust) that is keeping me from being able to remove it if it was supposed to come off without issue.

I'm stumped. And... I live in the desert, so taking it to a shop is out of the question.

bongart,
The internet is your friend. And us too. Go www.autozone.com and sign up. The maintenance section has OEM GM manuals. It may have instructions for model. I know it does for second generation S10. The mobile app does not seem to access the maintenance section. If you use a computer, the website will give you access.
Worst case to not hammer them it to drill them out. Time consuming but better than beating up bearings. The bearing case can break with hammering.

Unfortunately, Google, and the internet in general, is not that friendly on this subject. For one, the "maintenance" section contains specific articles on common issues and projects... none of which pertain to what I am dealing with. In fact, I have looked through all three parts of the Autozone/DIY subweb (how-to, trustworthy advice, maintenance) and none of their articles pertain to this. I was surprised that there wasn't even one about CV joints... which might have peripherally covered this.

In my Google searches I have not found any walk-throughs, or other form posts on other sites... I have not found any downloadable copies of a Haynes or Chiltons or anything similar. This is why I have resorted to asking on a forum... because I have not been able to locate a specific passive solution to my problem. I've had to seek an active one.

So... if you know of a specific link you can provide, as opposed to the assumption that the information is located somewhere, that would be appreciated. Otherwise, you are telling me to do what I am already doing... and that advice isn't working.

bongart, unfortunately I have not owned or worked on a first generation S10. When I need help for First Gen models, I go to https://www.s10forum.com/forums/s10-s15.135/
The forum may have downloadable maintenance PDF files.

Can you identify the front axle? An axle search may turn up information.

We don't have any pdf files like that. The OP is going to have to find someone with a press to replace the studs. He's got to go to town to get them anyway. New hubs can be had for $35
