Remove the wheel, remove the hub nut, remove the brake caliper and rotor, put your socket and extension through the hub flange onto the bearing retainer bolts, undo them, release the abs sensor connector if it has it, remove the bearing and hub flange as an assembly, put the new one on and go backwards from here. Torque the hub nut to 180 ft/lbs, your done.

Remove the brake caliper
Remove the disc, (rotor)
Remove the 34mm nut on the axel shaft
Remove the three (3) bolts from the back side
You will need a wheel puller (three jaw will work well)
Place the puller over the hub and tighten, this will push the shaft out of the hub. Now you have to pull the hub assy. out of the mounting bracket. I found hitting each side,of the hub with a lead hammer to work well. Don't forget to disconnect the ABS senser on the back side of the hub assy.
Do not over tighten the 34mm axel nut when you install the new assy. If you use an impact whrench on it you will damage the bearing.

Lock handbrake, loosen lug nuts, jack it up and set on axle stands and remove front wheels.
Unbolt the brake caliper, tie it up to the suspension arm with a zip tie etc. Don't let it hang loose on the brake lines. Unbolt the brake rotor from the hub. You might need a friend to stand on the brakes to keep the rotor from spinning.
Once the brake rotor is off, undo the center hub nut (usually a large bolt 22mm or bigger). Keep these in order when you remove them, the castle nut is next (looks like a little castle turret), washers, a lock nut and then finally the bearings are next. Clean out the aperture with a clean cloth.
Regrease the bearings and the inside of the hub. Refit the parts in the right order. Be gentle with the lock nut, it may take a few goes to get this right as it can be too loose or too tight, making the rotor (when it's back on) feel stiff to turn.
Refit the rotor, brake caliper (make sure the brake line is not crimped) and do the same for the other side if it is necessary. Refit wheels and take her for a spin.
Vote for me if this helps you. Thanks
