That bearing has three sides and three mounting bolts. If you look at all three sides right between the bolts, there should be a small notch on one of them right in the middle that gives just enough clearance to get the stud out.
Some replacement bearings don't have that notch. The studs were pressed in first, then the parts were pressed together. For those, you'll have to use an air cutoff tool to cut off part of the threads, then there are studs that have part of the head cut away to make installation possible. I've seen them but I don't know where people bought them, and I've never installed one like that. All auto parts stores have big selections of studs and they are likely to have those specifically to solve the problem you're having.
