So I was trying to replace brake pads on my 2013 Lincoln MKZ 3.7L awd. Went to go remove the L front wheel and one of the lug nuts just spins. So I'm guessing the stud is broken. Any ideas on how to remove the lug and replace the stud?

Are you handy?   Broken lug nut video's offered on UTube, or Google on How to remove. Once the the other lugs and wheel are removed, you may then need to use a hammer and punch to drive out the remaining stud portion. You can usually obtain replacements from your local Auto Parts Store, unless you prefer a Lincoln Dealer.

Check to see if this is a wheel lock nut , if so you need the special lug key to remove it.

If the stud was broken, a piece with the lug nut would separate entirely.  If the nut is just spinning, you have determine what is causing that, i.e., is the decorative cover spinning while the nut stays in place or is the whole stud spinning in the hub because it's stripped?  If it's the former, the cover can be chiseled off with a small chisel.  If it's the latter, there are specialized tools for removing the stud from the hub. You might be able to drill through the center of the nut and the stud yourself with quality drill bits.  If you don't want to tackle this yourself,  you'd probably be best off going to an auto repair or tire shop.

 

Be aware that that if the stud is spinning in the hub, you might need to replace the hub.
