The way it comes off is to back off the self adjuster wheel, it is not very easy, I know. They make a drum puller for this problem. The studs just hammer out, and you can use a nut and a smaller lug nut to pull it into the hub. The larger nut goes over the new stud(larger then the threads, and use a lug nut to turn it in, it pulls the stud in place.

Here are two videos that will help you out.
