    Sounds like a wheel stud and a new lug. Probably under $20 for the parts, then a few more for labor, any shop can do this, or if you want the dealer go for it, call them for a quote as they are doing the job, not us.

    dont over tighten your lug nuts... or cross thread...

    torque to approx. 65ft-lbs, and you should be good.

    cost my friend $40 or $60 at a STS shop to replace the stud on his civc last week. Imagine somewhere around that as the studs are $2-$3 a piece plus some labor. I've replaced them before on another car. Not hard to do.
