Question about Cars & Trucks
If it's broken flush, use a hammer and punch to push it out the back. It will move with persuasion . When installing the new one, use the lug nut and a larger nut that will slip over the threads without touching them to pull the new stud back into place.

Its Also Very Easy To Do Yourself If You Can Change The Brakes You Can Do This. You Can Have Them Pressed In At Any Tire Shop Usually $5.

SOURCE: I am trying to replace
With adrift punch. bang out broken stud from huB. Will take some severe hammerering, so using a heavy short handle sledge is advised. Now place the new stud into the hub hole. Put the lug nut on , TIGHTEN ( preferablly with an air impact gun ) as tight as you can till the stud bottoms out. Then you're done. Hope this helps

grab a large punch and hammer and knock out the old broken one. Push the new one in and re tighten. This will pull it into place and because it has splines it should not spin while doing so.

Testimonial: "excellent advice"
SOURCE: broken stud on left front wheel
Remove: wheel, brake caliper & rotor. Drive out the remaining stub with a hammer and punch. Insert a new stud and pull it into place by tightening the lug nut. Before running out of threads, remove the nut, insert a stack of washers or a large nut which slips over the threads without contacting them, tighten the lug nut to seat the stud.

grind a flat spot on the round head of the new stud this should give enough clearance to install it. don't pull the hub this will damage the bearing.
