you have to hammer the studs through the spindle to get them out. then **** the new ones in with a nut and lots of washers. put grease on the washers and threads before you **** the studs in.

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.

Hello. This is a job that requires either an air impact wrench or a lot of brute strength. You will have to remove the brake caliper and the rotor. Then put a couple of lug nuts on the stud to hammer it out. And finally, an impact wrench to install the new one. It is much easier to do this with the car up in a lift sooooooooooo you may want to call around and see who will do it for a few dollars. either way, good luck with it.

Normally these studs are pressed in by a machine
If you get a sledge hammer and a solid iron bar you can use this to get them off it takes a lot of doing but they will come off you may cioncider soaking the studs in penetrating oil for about 15 to 20 min before you attempt to get them off due to rust and build up.
If this does not work i would take the wheel to a shop that has a press ands have them get them off and have the new ones pressed in
Also You can heat the area around the stud with a torch and then use the sledge hammer ok ?
If you have the new studs and they are the right ones great, if not a local wheel or place that does rims should have them they cost around $2.00 a piece Ok?
Hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael
