It's not something I would do again myself. You can bang the old one out easily, but getting a new one pressed in isn't as easy as some make it out to believe. There is virtually no space to get to it from behind. Also using the lug nut to seat it is not a good idea because you'll probably just strip it out.
I'm sure any shop will do it cheap.

|IowaRaider||you should be able to knock it out yourself, any autoparts store will have a replacement. Just press it in and tighten it up.|

Remove the drum and use a hammer to smack out the old one then get the new one in as best as you can and use the new lug nut to seat it as far as you can and install the drum and tire and the stud will seat the rest of the way. and I drove around 2 days like that before I realized that I was missing one.
Best of luck

|JeepCreeper||I'm no expert, but I've changed a bolt on a Bronco before. They were press fit, so I just banged the old one out and banged the new one in.|

|kodiakjoe1978||As long as the other one's are on tight it won't hurt anything they sometime break off i've had several break off before on an old 3/4 chevy.|

Just broke one of the five screws that holds my rear wheel on! What's weird is that when I last put the lug nut on, I don't remember any difficulty at all- and it broke as I was taking it off... :/
Anyway, how dangerous is it to drive with a missing screw? I don't really have any other way to get to autozone to buy a new one. Is it hard to replace?
