Question about 1990 Honda Prelude
The first step in wheel stud replacement is to remove the old one. On almost every car, this is done by taping them out from the threaded side
Rotate the hub so that the back side (flat, on the back side of the hub) will not smash into something when you tap it out.
You will need a heavy hammer and safety glasses,
Next, while the glasses are on your face, use the hammer and whack on the threaded end of the old stud to drive it out the back side of the hub. If if was broken off real short, you might have to use a punch to transfer the hammer blows to what is left of the stud.
To install the new one, place it in the hole from the back side and use a standard lug nut on the new stud screwed on backwards (flat end toward the hub) and then use the car's lug wrench to tighten the nut and pull the stud into the hub. Make sure the grooves in the hub line up with the ridges in the new stud before trying to seat it.
Once the stud is fully seated, remove the lug nut. You are done.
I usually buy a standard lug nut that fits the replacement stud to do this procedure because most mag nuts are closed on the back end. It is cheap and will save lots of time.

Front or rear? The front will have a disc and the rear should be a drum. Either way the stud gets pressed out of the back and with the proper equipment it is a very easy procedure. If you do not have the proper tools simply take the drum or disc to a brake shop for the inexpensive repair to be done properly.

SOURCE: Broken wheel stud.
Studs are pressed in. Heat the studs with a propane torch, and then use a ballpein hammer to pound them out. Insert new studs, and use nuts to draw them into place
