Broken rear wheel studs-Need Help!

My son has a couple of broken wheel studs on the left rear axle. What is involved in replacing? Will the axle have to be removed? We have the brake disc removed and it appears the axle flange is pressed on to the axle with splines, is this correct? Can we just use a puller to remove the flange from the axle in order to can enough access in order to replace the studs?

You can usually beat the broken studs out with a good size ball peen hammer. Take the borken stud(s) to a tire shop or auto parts store and match up the stud with a replacement. While there, get a couple of lug nuts to match the stud and pick up a few washers that will fit. Sneak the new studs in behind the flange, place the washers over it, throw on the lug nut(s) you bought, and suck that new stud right in.

Thanks for the reply Gddyup, we were able to put our heads together to figure it out. My problem was not removing the studs but having enough room to install the new ones. We ended up having to remove the four bolts in the back of the flange housing to give us the room we needed. It wasn't hard but a little more involved than I expected. Bottom line is, we changed it without having to bring it in to the dealer and saved some $$.

Torque wrenches are your friends when doing up lug nuts. Especially on aluminum wheels!

So, does the axle have to be removed to replace the studs? Can anyone provide a schematic? I need pictures.
