Default replacing front lug bolts with caliper on

I have a broken bolt and research indicates to remove the caliper and rotor, then align notch, then beat stud out. Can I do this without removing caliper and rotor/

I think you can the rotor just sitts on the studs anyway and the calpier holds the pads so id say as long as you can get that slot to line up the big thing here is to NOT mushroom the stud beating it out

something like a center punch and a good heavy hammer set that punch in the middle and give it a few solid hard wacks it should slid back

one more thing IF the stud is not brok all the way off and if you can get a lug nut on it some time you can hit the lug nut and pop it loose but this will probally mess up the lug
