No nothing special to do. But I would call the dealership to see if they will warranty the repair. It will save you money. But if not. You just have to remove the rotor and hit the stud out. To get the rotor off you have to remove the caliper. There are two bolts that hold the caliper on. Remove the bolts for the caliper. Then the caliper comes off. The rotor will come off. The rotor could be stuck. So you mite have to remove hit the rotor to get it off. Make sure you don't hit the rotor where the brake pads use to stop the car. Make sure you have the stud in a place where it will not hit anything behind it. Then put in the new stud. You need to pull the stun into places. You do that by buying another nut that fits the stud. Then you need a washer or a spacer bigger than the stud shaft. Use the washer then the nut that you bought. Tighten the nut till the back of the stud is all the way to the hub.
