Hi Ralph Ocasio,

If you can get the studs, it is not necessary to replace the hub and bearing assy.

Remove the brake caliper assy including mounts and take out the rotor. Knock the stud in to get it out, they are pressed in from behind.

If you have difficulty getting the studs in, you need to remove the driveshaft nut and use a puller to get the hub loose for clearance. When retightening the driveshaft lock nut, make sure the hub is seated fully, if not the bearing would give way shortly. Tighten and loosen a few times to be sure.

After putting in new studs, use a nut to tighten from the front to press the stud firm.
