Santa Fe rear wheel stud replacement

    My sister has a 2007 Santa Fe 4WD automatic and yesterday one of the rear wheels came off while driving.

    The 5 studs need to be replaced ( 4 sheared off level with the surface and just a stub of the fifth left) but for now I would like to replace 2 or 3 so that a wheel can be fitted to get it on a beaver tail recovery truck.

    Does anyone on the forum know if the studs can be replaced without removing the bearing. If I removed brake caliper and disc would there be space behind the flange to fit new studs ( it would appear that the handbrake has its own shoes acting on the disc ).

    I just want to get it home where I can repair it properly. Any advice greatly appreciated .
