need to know where the stud is and what it is fastening....

soak it overnight with liquidwrench or mystery oil, then use vise grips. If stud is broke off flush, drill and use an ez-out. Be ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN that you soak it first!!!

I think you are talking about a wheel stud? If it's 4wd spin the hub assembly until it lines up with the holes in the back of the assembly (this gives room to pound it out). Next find a 5lbs short sledge hammer. Make sure the hub won't spin and pound the stud out. To install the new stud put it through the hub hole and get it started. Place washers over the other end and also the lug nut. Tighten the lug nut and as it puts pressure on the washers it will pull the stud through. -Hope that helps-

Remove wheel, brake caliper, brake disc, parking brake shoes etc. Drive out broken stud, replace with new stud. Replace above in reverse order.

Drive the old broken wheel stud out, and drive a new one in. Purchase the new stud at any auto parts store.

The stud can be replaced. If you go to NAPA auto parts and order a "P19" stud kit, it will fit in and replace your broken stud.
