I had a stuck rotor, so I threaded on the nuts (leaving a gap), put an old rotor on top of that, and tried to use a c-clamp to press off the rotor (squeeze the old rotor and the new rotor). Didn't work. I eventually got it off with a hammer.

Except now I have a bent bolt (stud? lug?). :(

So, can I replace just the bolt, or do I need a new bearing assembly? The back is really really rusty.

This is the rear wheels, disk brakes.

it is possible to replace only one stud at a time but if your car is that rusty you may benefit from just getting a bearing now or at the very least clean up the old one really well

How do I get the stud out? Just hammer it?

I whacked on it with a regular hammer - made lots of noise, but nothing.

A couple of light taps with a 5lb, and it slid right out.

On an unrelated note, that's going to have to be the last repair I do to the rear half of the car - the rail is all bent up in every spot I can fit a jack - even in the notch.
