Re: Procedure for replacing broken rear wheel stud on...
It is a Knockout Stud. It will take quite a bit of force to get it out to. The new stud just goes in the Same way. Use a little WD 40 on Install for easier insert. The Lug Nut will keep it from getting loose.

remove the wheel
using a hammer and punch knock the broken stud out
fit the new stud from behind use over size nuts as spacers fit the stud nut and apply tension
using the hammer and punch from the rear on the head of the stud knock it in as you keep the tension on the stud nut
keep the process going until the stud is fully seated on the head of the stud
Make sure all tires are chalked,put vehicle in neutral,turn drum till it has a clear spot to knock stud out,use hammer and wooden block,don't use metal punch,can cause burr on end of stud and not want to come out of hole.Both tires on back may need lifted in air to turn.
Lug studs are pressed in from the back side and on most cars, if you rotate the axle to a specific point there is enough room to knock it out. then once you have the proper replacement, it can be "pulled" back in using a lug nut and washers as spacers. I have had lug nuts get ruined by this procedure so buy extras.
drum is not hard to get off and install
no dont buy another drum
once you remove drum,you can just knock the broken studs out with a hammer and punch
to install new studs,just tap them into place with a hammer. the studs go in from the inside of drum.happy mechanicing
You do not remove the wheel hub flange, just follow the procedure that I replied to earlier, and this is the procedure if you do not want to obtain a special tool for pressing the lug studs;
First you will have to pound the broken lug studs out of the wheel hub, then you will need a lug nut and about a half an inch thick of flat washers.
1. Insert the new lug stud through the wheel hub from behind so that the threaded end is facing out towards you and then put some grease on the threads.
2. Then slip the flat washers onto the lug stud followed by the lug nut, and run the lug nut down to take up the slack.
3. Then using a breaker bar tighten the lug nut until it pulls the lug stud through the wheel hub and it is flush with the wheel hub.
Be sure that the amount of flat washers used will make up for any non-threaded part of the lug stud that might stick out past the wheel hub preventing the lug nut from pulling the lug stud all the way through the wheel hub, and basically you do not want the lug nut to run out of threads before it can pull the lug stud flush with the wheel hub.
Yeah , it's a fairly simple repair, All the wheel studs must be replaced and lug nuts also.Closely examine the wheel or get competent tyre replacement company to double check for damage ! Remove the brake disc caliper and brake disc itself (usually 2 cross head screws) , tap off (gently) it may be stuck thru corrosion / rust etc , Broken studs can be knocked out(towards drive shaft ) of the hub assy with a suitable drift and hammer (splined into hub) . The studs are a servicable replacement part. Check all other wheel nuts as this is usually a result from poor fixing or wheel replacement recently .. Good luck
