Remove wheel, brake caliper bracket, rotor, tie brake caliper up out of the way as to not put tension on the hose, remove hub bearing & assembly, yank c.v shaft out (just held in by clips) pop new shaft in securely, reassemble hub, brakes & wheel.

SOURCE: 2003 Alero passenger window

I would be very suspicious of the drivers master swich. If the window works fine on the other side it's an easy assumption that the window motor and regulator are operative. The switches are usually fairly inexpensive (less then 100.00 ) and easy to install

the procedure to remove them is here As for the seal you should be able to pry the old one out once you have removed the half shaft with a screwdriver or ask at your local parts store if they can rent/sell you a seal removal tool
hope this helps!

Where is the flasher on a 2003 olds alero

Its located behind the hazard button to the right of the speedo cluster. If you have a clicking noise as if your turn signal was on or hazard buttons pressed. Its not your flasher problem. I had to tear apart half the dash and found out that was not problem. Its the turn signal/ wiper switch located on top the steering column.

Hope helps.

Front(Driver) Window problem 2002 Olds. Alero

If a power window, then it sounds like the window regulator has failed, or on either a power or manual window- the regulator attachments have broke. The window would need to come out and inspect for the failure. ?If just the window attachments, they can be purchased and re-glued onto the glass. If the regulator has failed, the entire assembly needs to be replaced.
