Angry Snapped a wheel stud

I was rotating the tires and snapped the stud clean off with the lug on the rear. How difficult is it to replace the stud? Do I just loosen it from behind the hub? Is it easily accessable?

Conceptually it isn't that bad, but in reality it is a pain, because those studs are in there so damn tight. Ideally you want to press them out, but in the rear the lack of clearance makes that difficult. You can bang the hell out of them to get them out but I would be afraid of damaging the wheel bearings.

Are you using a torque wrench on your lugs? They only take like 68 ft-lbs, if you are just cranking them down as hard as you can that is bad juju.
