Lug bolts are normally hammered or drawn into place with the use of the wheel. They are removed the same. Remove the wheel, you may have to set the rotor in such a position that allows for the lug removal. Usually a very small gap allows for it. Take a good hammer and carefully pound it in till it pops out the back. Take your new one and push it in than tap it a few times till enough thread is showing that it can be drawn in all the way with the wheel installed.

How do you get clearance room to replace the lug bolt on the front wheel of a Chevy lumina?

You either have to remove the hub (not the easiest) or you can buy a lug bolt about 1/4 inch shorter (when I went to the parts store the correct bolt was shorter). I had them supply me the longer bolt to match what was there originally. I had to bring them back and buy the shorter bolts which inserted from behind. You have to tighten the lug nuts to pull the new bolt into the proper seat. I did this with a long torque wrench.
