Default Broken wheel stud

Hello , My wife's car has a two broken wheel studs, right side, front and back . I have a manual that says to use a press device, local auto stores loans tools butthey dont have such a tool . I have a C-Clamp , but the end swivals, and both wheel studs are broken and inside. What about just pounding it out with a punch and hammer, or will that damage the spindle hitting it . I have seen how it says to replace them by just tightening the lug and pull it threw.Any help is much appreciated.I would just go ahead and try but would like to have someone that has done it so I dont mess it up. Thank you

Yes, you should be able to punch it out. Just be careful. But here's some internet results:

I find it ironic that the colors red, white, and blue stand for freedom until they are flashing behind you.

The Hammer, NO but using a sickle to try and get the broken studs out with that hammer isn't gonna do any good. Might scratch everything up a bit.

Didn't the Air Force pay $200 for a hammer like that?

Stud has a shoulder that sticks past hub (Shorter than disc face, obviously) so there's always something sticking up when threaded part breaks off
