I've managed to strip not just one but 2 wheel studs on my u12 bluebird SSS (on the same wheel too , does anyone know where I can get replacements as cheaply as possible? Repco seem unwilling to help...any suggestions would be much appreciated!

Umm, do you have any wreckers around the area? you will need a wheel nut to spin onto the stud untill it is flush with the end, & a reasonable hammer to whack it with. The nut helps to share the shock load along the stud & to protect the end of the stud.

Rethreading a male fastener that has had the thread stripped from it on a high stress part like a wheel stud is not really a good idea.

Ok cheers guys, well yeah I clicked and rang the Nissan dealer here, very easy...however I'm stuggling actually getting the cover off on the rear of the disc (on the rear wheels), so that I can fit my shiny new ones, I'm a little scared of undoing something that I can't do back up, stripping two threads on one wheel has given me a new sense of paranoia...

sometimes there is a little cutout that the stud will just slide past, you may need to tweak it a bit, otherwise you may be have to disassemble the hub. If you pull the caliper and mount off, then remove the disc (hit it hard with a hammer on the hub part betwwen the studs, or wind some bolts into the threaded part if it has them) this will give you a better view.

Woohoo fixed, mechanical problems are so much easier than electrical ones, somewhere in the electrics of the bluebird lies something that drains the battery faster than the alternator can charge it (it goes flat about 1000km/3 weeks after a full charge) ... the alternator has been tested and is fine As great as fuel injection and all the other electric goodies are I kinda like knowing what every piece of wiring does...

I doubt that. The alternator puts out far more than the electronics of the car require (except for the starter).

Have you personally measured the voltage output of the alternator? It should read 13.5 - 15 volts at 1200 rpm. If it's less, say 13 volts, that would explain the problem.

At idle (800 rpm) it's producing 13.4 volts, higher revs gets it up to close to 14, hence im not sure what it is, my brother had a faulty fuse box which had similar symptoms in his 720 ute. There's just so much wiring in the car that I'm not sure where to start and I'm against paying someone else!
