Had to drill a stud out myself, my own bone head move. Use a punch to set the center of the hole and start with a small drill bit to get a fair way in. Next use a 1/4 inch bit with some oil/lubricant and if you have a replacement stud you can get a pretty good judgement on the depth you need. When I got to where I felt it was deep enough of a hole I snapped the stud off with a screwdriver. Hope this helps.
the key to this is lubrication.... when drilling a stud the heat created is crazy, use lots of lubrication on the bit.
Its honestly not a hard task.... drill deep with a small bit, widen with a larger bit.... use a tap, hit it with a hammer and the stud will break because it was significantly weakened by being drilled.
You will then need to remove the wheel, take the disk off and replace the stud.
