SOURCE: changing front wheel bearing
first take the wheel off
Then take the caliper off the rotor
Then take the rotor off the CV joint spindle
You will need to remove the three bolts that hold the bearing in place.
You will either need to remove the two bolts that hold the strut or
you will need a Puller.

Easiest way to check and see what the issue is. Jack up the front end of the vehicle and support it on stands grab the top and bottom of the wheel and move it back and forth check to make sure it is not in the lower ball joint, if it moves back and forth very freely it is either the bearing or the lower ball joint. Grab the front and rear of the tire and move it watch the tie rod end and see if it has slack in it the other wheel should move as much as the one you are moving.

The wheel bearings on these vehicles are not adjustable. If the bearings become loose or make noise, they must be replaced.
