Replacing wheel studs on driver side rear on a 03 Grand Marquis?
My son sheared off one stud and messed up two other studs. Need to replace them, got the caliper off, caliper bridge still on with what looks like four bolts behind the shield. Can't seem to get rotor off to get to studs. I don't really want to mess with rear axle. Hoping that the shield has a openong where I can knock out the studs for replacement. Help!
I was trying to find a post by TST about the same thing, can't find it but it has to do with parking brake and something that has to come off before rotors will. Hopefully he will see this

Go in behind hub,there will be a little rubber cap at top of back where the e brake cable goe,s into hub,remove it,stick a screw driver or a brake tool in it to adjust the shoe,s back off of hub,to remove it.
Move the screw driver or brake tool up to loosen.and down to tighten it,it is called a brake clicker.
Thank you TST and Fordnut. TST will I be able to knock out the studs after I remove the rotor hub?
Yes,there for the taking.
I appreciate your help TST Thank you very much!!
Im sure fordnut and i say you are welcome.
Just replaced one, no cutting. Unclipped and moved rear emergency brake shoe back got front end of bolt started in hole. Rotate hub into bolt and it will push slack in axle out and it falls in. No cut or shorten bolt
