Replacing stripped rear wheel stud. Please help

So to day I went to rotate my tires and notice that one lug on the rear passenger side wheel was really hard to get off. I don't know if I crossthreaded it going on or if it jumped threads on me coming off. Either way it destroyed my lug nut and wheel stud.

I've done front wheels studs before, but never a rear and need some help. I took the caliper off, but can't figure out how to get the rotor off so I can get to the studs. Any guidance is appreciated

Once the caliper is off the disc just comes off. Just hit with a dead blow if it's stuck.

Yeah I tried that and no help. The front one I replaced went smooth as silk, but I just can't get the rear disc to budge

Thanks for the input tho. I'll just keep trying

1.) Don't feel bad
2.) Take the E-Brake off
3.) See #1...

We've all done it.

The e brake is off already tho. That's why I'm confused about it not coming off

If it's the drum you're trying to get off, try using a piece of 2x4 laid across the back and hit it with a 5lb dead blow hammer. Drums are fun to get off sometimes.
