Question about 1999 Chevrolet Prizm
How do i replace a front wheel bearing for a 1999 chevy prism
The wheel bearings are pressed, you will have to take it into a shop.

Tips for a great answer:
The wheel bearing is installed in the wheel hub assembly and is serviced by replacement only.
You may need Torx sockets to remove the bearing assembly bolts.
Raise and support the front of the vehicle safely using jackstands.
Remove the tire and wheel assembly.
At the wheel hub, remove the cotter pin and retainer, then loosen and remove the castle nut and the thrust washer. In order to hold the hub from turning when loosening the nut, insert a drift through the caliper and into the rotor vanes. Remove the brake caliper and support it aside using wire or a coat hanger. Make sure the brake line is not stretched or damaged.
Remove the brake rotor from the wheel hub.
Remove the bolts retaining the hub/bearing assembly to the knuckle, then carefully pull the assembly from the splined end of the halfshaft. If available, use J-28733-A or B, or an equivalent spindle remover to prevent damage to the shaft or hub/bearing assembly.
Remove the cotter pin from the drive axle end nut and retainer
Remove the retainer for access to the end nut
Loosen the drive axle nut-here the caliper is installed so a drift could be inserted to keep the disc from spinning
