If you are trying to change a broken or bad threads on a wheel stud you only have to tap it with a hammer to drive it out of the hub. You install new ones with a nut that is larger than the threads on the new stud. You put the new stud in from the back of the hub, put the larger nut over the stud and use a lug nut and a wrench to pull the new stud tight into the hub.

How to undo left hand back wheel studs?

With the car on flat and level ground with a wheel chocked, slacken off a little with the wheel wrench anticlockwise. Then jack the car up. You can stand on the wrench if it is a good fit.

If you really mean remove the studs themselves rather than the nuts, there are two ways. Lock two nuts tightly together and undo, or use a stud remover which grips the non-threaded part.

Where is jacking point for front tyre change of isuzu npr 200 short truck

under the outer ball joint if independent suspension or under the beam axle under the spring
If you do not know how to jack your vehicle before the problem arises maybe you should not be driving it.
look at the wheel studs ans there will be an L or an R punched on the end of the stud. R is for right hand side ans is undone just like a normal bolt
L will be on the left hand side and is a left hand thread which means that in effect you have to do it up to undo it.

How do I replace the wheel studes in a 2001 nissan pathfinder

I take it that you have broken or stripped studs. Remove the hub and place the flange where the studs are on a solid base ( piece of pipe just a bit longer than the distance from the back of the flange to the inside edge of the hub. Place the pipe so that the back of the stud is inside the pipe. Hit the stud solidly with a hammer and it will drive out into the pipe. The studs are a press fit with a multi groove profile that makes it's own grooves in the hub so that the stud will not turn when undoing the nut.. To replace turn the hub over on the pipe and position the pipe again so that the thread will go inside the pipe. position the stud and drive it home into the hub

Broken studs I have removed the studs & lremoved the bolts holding the disc also I have removed the brake caliper but there is not enough room between the hub &the disc to get the new studs in Its...

i assume this is the front wheel... you will need to remove the wheel hub completly. to do this will need to remove thhe manual or auto locking hub, these are normally either a 10mm bolt for manual hubs and an 8mm alen key for the auto's. behind that is a circlip on the axle that holds a locking ring. remove the circlip and the snout type lock ring. then will need to remove the wheel bearing lock ring, normally 2 philips screws into the bearing adjuster. then will be able to undo the wheel bearing adjuster all the way off the shaft and the hub and disc should pull off. remove the disc and then can access the wheel stud.
reccommend check out the wheel bearings while off. ensure has heeps of clean grease, refit the hub with the disc and tighten adjuster tight. then loosten it and wind in again until it just stops turning easily, this is as the adjuster starts pushing on the bearings, this is setting the freeplay of the bearings, then refit locking hub and brake caliper

Removing front rotar

rotar doesn't contain the studs, the plate/hub behind the rotar does - you need a 32mm socket to undo the axle nut to then get at the hub (need a flat screw driver to lever the nut tang up first). If it's seized on put the rotar and wheel back on (leave the axle nut off) and gently rock it in a top-bottom motion (not radially or axially) to free it up. you can then gain access to the hub and studs. put the wheel nuts back on the studs 2 -3 turns so that you have a 'seat' and using a bolt with a smaller dia to punch them out
