2000 Navigator rear wheel stud removal help!

I need to replace a rear left wheel stud on a 2000 navigator. I can not push the old stud out, or install new stud because of clearance issues. Do I need to remove the axle to replace a couple of these wheel studs?

air tools work wonders, dead blow hammers work wonders too with heat. loosen axle heat and deadblow will work.

Watch out on heating up that hub though, there is a rear wheel seal that can melt and leak, so make sure you are controlling your heat. Small propane torch directly where stud meets hub, and keep it as minimal as possible on surface area application. Thats the best way I can think of to explain that.

There is a misunderstanding, I do not need help to get the studs out, but rather they do not fall out and there is not enough room behind the axle to get a new one in there, there is not enough room between the brake plate and the axle to fit a new one in there, or get the old one out. Thanks

You have to remove the park brake shoes on most of them.

Oh yeah I apologize, Hmmmm.... Its been a while but I remember having this problem once. I honestly hate to say this but I really dont remember what I did to solve it, so it must have been a simple solution. I would probably have to see pictures to get to the bottom of it.
