SOURCE: Broken lug stud on rear wheel.
It appears from the excellent picture that the stud has to be spun to line up the half moons at the rear of the stud.Use two thin nuts locked together so you can spin the remaining stud to line up with reliefs in back of the retainer.

SOURCE: 2 lug-nut studs sheared off
I would only be guessing on the why it happened
You would be the one to know the vehicles history
I NEVER use air guns on wheel lugs or seldom
anything else & I have every tool you can own
The pros can not start their day or function at all
without an air tool
So I would say they broke them with too much air
Also, I will disagree with the trade publications, which
I get,having once owned a business, based on
almost 50 years experience & say you need clean
studs & I use anti-seize and only 80# on lugs nuts.
Never had one loosen up.
Hopefully you can hammer them out & install new ones
If they were on the front,then you don't always have clearance
& have to replace an expensive hub assy.
You can do that yourself
Get the studs at parts store & use an old nut & some spacers
or washers to draw then in
Or have a tire store do it
They may be able to use there air gun to pull them in
without any issues

Causes are the mounting surface of the the rotor or drum not clean when wheel was installed, wheel bent, suspension damaged, wheels not torques down correctly or left loose.
