it's missing one or one broke off? you have to remove the wheel, caliper, rotor, and then i think you can just hammer out the old stud and then put the new one in. you can get it at the dealer or someone about a month ago posted they found it at an automotive parts store. the threading is 12 x 1.25

The stud is simply pushed through from behind. It has a tight spline to hold it in place. This is not that difficult to do (I carry a spare for roadside replacement just in case).

You need to take the rotor off. Hammer out the old stud, being careful not to do any damage to the rotor. The new stud will come with a new nut so you don't need the old nut. Hammer the new stud into place from the other side of the rotor. Replace rotor, brakes etc.

I have broken 4 or 5 wheel studs on my RS. They are just not designed for the constant changing of tires that 4 years of autocrossing has put it through. The fronts are very easy to replace though. The rears are a bit more difficult as you have to remove the E-brake assembly.

I'll bring this one back from the dead since I can't seem to find an answer anywhere.

Any hints on how to get around the parking brake assembly when replacing a left rear stud? Rotor is off but the parking brake pads are in the way. Trying to avoid taking too much off if I don't have to. Anyone have a step by step process?

I've never done it in a WRX, but in the other cars I've worked out you can unbolt the whole backing (assembly and all) from the knuckle. But like I said, I've never done it on a WRX.
