Been a While.....

since I have had my front end apart but you may need to need pull the rotor off. (if you have disc brakes) Which means that you will have to pull your hubs apart. Not as hard as it seems, buy yourself a Haynes or Chilton's Manual. (I have both) Pay attention to the order that the washers and springs go and follow the pics in the manuals. Now you may be able to spin the rotor to a certain spot where you can drive the broken stud out with a drift pin. In both instances to replace the new stud place in the hole making sure it is square tap it in so as to stay in place and then it will draw in the rest of the way when you put the wheel back on and tighten down on the nut.

Hope this helps,
Wildbill
