SOURCE: replace front wheel bearings
The bearings in your car are pressed into a hub. If the part is available as an assembly, it can be replaced that way. Generally on a front drive car:
Remove wheels and brake calipers
If it is pressed in: remove the rotors, disconnect the drive shafts and remove the steering knuckle. Then the old bearing is pressed out and the new one pressed in with a machine shop press. If the bearing is part of the hub, that will be unbolted and the new one swapped.
On a scale of 1-10 difficulty, Id rate it a strong 7

SOURCE: how to replace front wheel
I can tell you on a 93 Altima that you have remove the entire wheel knuckle and press it out from the rear. Yeah, the knuckle, remove the strut tower bolts, drive train ( which can be lighty pressed out ), caliper and bracket, and remove the ball joint. There's a snap ring at the back of the wheel knuckle that holds the bearing, then press it out with a socket and a table vice or something to that effect. By the way the going commercial rate if you take it to a shop and have them do it starts at $150 for labor. Worth it, oh yeah.

Yes it is as easy as it looks. If you had the tire off and figured out that it looks easy, you shouldn't have much problem.
