Noise from front wheel bearing ,thought it was the drive shaft but it wasn't
The front wheel bearing is pressed into the knuckle. You can remove the knuckle and bring it to a shop or a machine shop and have them press out the old one and press in the new one.

just did one today. removed housing from car, and used a press . be careful of aluminum housing. also used penatrating spray. clean oxidation from inside bearing hole,then lubricating, helped in installation

SOURCE: front hub is stuck to knuckle.
spray with penetrating oil and let sit. hit with a big hammer. if it still will not come loose remove knuckle and use a press to remove bearing.
