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: kia sorento electric aerial packed up.

Look under the wheel arch and remove the plastic cowl which protects the under side of the wing.
You will see the aerial under there.
good luck

Can I replace rear wheel bearings only on my 2007 sorento [I realise I need to have them pressed in] or do I need to replace whole hub & bearing assembly its a solid axle type


Hub bearings are always replaceable using the existing hub. You only need to press them in by hand and then tap them in with a socket big enough to sit on the outer bearing race. Put the hub on the car, put the tire on the hub and tighten the hub nut whilst turning the wheel until the pressure on the bearing caused the wheel to lock up. Then back the bearing off by the required amount, usually a quarter turn. Check the manual.
