Question about Cars & Trucks
I went to take the wheel off on the back and 2 studs broke on me, can i take a stud off another side and put on it til i can afford to buy a new 1, so i can keep driven the car? its a 2000 pontiac grand prix
Yes you can, i worked long time in tyre fitment garage in south africa, some of those cars have only 2 studs keeping the rim to the hub,but check if the stud is tight regularly.

SOURCE: broken wheel stud
1. get new studs and nuts
3. remove caliper at bracket to spindle connection(2 18mm bolts?)you may need to remove caliper from bracket,but not always nessacery. Or remove drum,then to #5
4.remove rotor,will need a hammer, tap inbetween studs dont wreck good studs and see if new studs can be installed without removing parking brake shoes. If there is no clearance to get new stud in you will need to remove shoes.
5.Pound out old studs place new stud in hole use a washer on outside then put a nut on and tighten to install stud, A air gun or some type of impact tool will be very helpful. Check to see that stud has enough threds to pull stud all the way thru ,add more washers if nessecary dont let the nut run out of threds it will **** to get back off and wreck new stud.
6. if you dont have air gun or feel comfertable removing brakes bring it to a reputable garage, shouldnt cost more than $70+ parts to get all new studs put in on one wheel.

usually they are an assembly but when i get crazy and damage studs i raise and support both front wheels so i can turn them and slowly move the hub where you can fit teh stud in and use an open lugnut to tighten down it will pull the stud in (i use an air compressor for this)

Studs are pressed in. Heat the studs with a propane torch, and then use a ballpein hammer to pound them out. Insert new studs, and use nuts to draw them into place

I'll try to help you. If you are having trouble with 3 out of 5 studs on one wheel you may want to go to an autoparts store or Salvage yard to look at the whole hub. Usually a press is used to remove the bolts so you would be taking off the hub anyway. When you pay for 3 bolts and labor you may be better off in a Salvage yard or parts place for a different hub. The rear hub on front wheel drive cars is like a trailer axle. Much simpler to remove mounting bolts and press in new bolt. But if rear has differential(rear wheel drive) it has an axle shaft. Would be easier to grind and drill out broken stud on car. You can draw new bolt into place by placing bolt through a socket and use the wheel nut to draw the bolt into the hub.
