Yeah it is. It isnt advisable to beat and bang on it with a hanner.
You will need to use whats called a wheel stud clamp to get it off with. I will try and see if I cant come up with a photo. Its got prongs on one side, king of like a balljoint/ tie rod seperator, and a cupped pusher for the clamp to push the stud out with.
you could try and get 2 nuts that will fit on the stud and put the first one 3/4 down the stung and the second tightly up against it and with a wrench on the back nut spin the stud out
The stud isn't screwed into the hub, it is pressed.
The stud has splines around the outside part of the bottom of the stud. If you try that, and spin it out of the hub, you will only wallow out the bore in the hub. Then, you wont be able to replace the new one.
