Question about Honda Civic
Support car safely,remove wheel,remove brake caliper and pads,and remove brake rotor.Impact broken/damaged stud with a medium weight ball peen hammer and/or punch.Remove old stud out the back of the hub and insert new stud.Pull tight by hand in the hole.Apply anti seize compound to the studs' threads,as well as the threads in the corresponding lug nut.This is important,as this prevents damage to the threads of the new stud and nut.The anti seize prevents the threads from galling,and crossing.After applying it,stack some flat washers on the threads of the new wheel stud,and run the lug nut up tight against the washers.Run the lug nut down by hand,with hand tools,then back it off and add some more washers.This pulls the stud into the wheel hub.When it is pulled all the way tight,and the job is done,reassembly is just reverse procedure.Make sure to remove all anti seize compound from the threads of the stud and lug nut,with brake cleaner,during the reassembly,as leaving it there could cause the lug nut to loosen.

rotor. make sure the car is on stands and not just waving around on a
2. look behind the caliper and use your finger to locate, a pair of bolts behind the caliper... they will be holding the caliper into place on the suface of the rotor, by a simple look and feel you can see these, they should take a 17mm socket undo them and remove the bolts. at this stage you should see the the caliper become loose.
3. remove the caliper by pulling it up and away from the rotor

7. there is one spot where the will be a gap and you will be able to get the stud in behind the hub and have a little bit of room, rotate the hub to there, make sure the car is out of gear or this will be very difficult :)
8 once the stud is in take something you can use as a spacer like a larger then the stud nut. for example and then put one of the wheel nuts on and tighten slightly
