I broke a wheel stud! How do I fix it?

OH! The car is a 94 Impreza in case it makes a difference.

If the wheel doesnt allow access to the nut while on, you obviously need to remove the tire. Once off with the car jacked up, you will need some way to hold the drum from turning. Not sure if the e-brake will hold it, but use it and put the tranny in 1st gear. Sometimes the nut comes loose easily, sometimes not (sorry for the pun:-p )
If you cant get the drum to keep from turning, your going to have to get inventive. I use a tire iron in between the studs and propped against the ground. Maybe others here will chip in with thier recommended tools for this.
