I apologize if this has been posted before (I searched wheel lug / wheel stud)

Hello everyone:

I have one front wheel stud that has sheared off, and another one that will need to be sheared in order to get the wheel off.

I can go get new studs at the local O'Reillys right now, but my main question is regarding the ability to press out the bad studs.

I would like to smack them with a heavy duty hammer to press them out, but I am not sure about the clearance on the back side. Can I remove and replace the studs without removing the hub assembly?

If anyone has some insight on this I would greatly appreciate the help! This is the only issue with my car (205k miles) as she has been very good to me.

Thank you in advance for any help I can get!
