to replace spokes without demounting solid tire

(I am self-taught so my method may vary from the orthodox.)

There is no need to remove a solid tire from the rim to install new spokes. There is no air tube to puncture.

-place nipple wrench on the nipple of the broken spoke
-turn the broken spoke to unscrew it from the nipple
-run the new spoke through the proper hole in the hub, and bring the threaded end to the nipple
-bend the spoke just enough to insert the threaded end into the nipple
-with nipple wrench turn the nipple to tighten the spoke

true the wheel as necessary. See my thread "Truing the bicycle wheel"

That will not help if the threaded part of the spoke broke off in the nipple, vlad.

you are quite right.

if the threaded part of the spoke is broken off in the nipple that is a situation involving the colour of a different horse.

to learn how to easily access, remove and replace the nipple wherein is the part of the broken spoke without demounting the solid tire, please see
