It's nearly impossible unless you have a good air compressor and a powerful 1/2" or larger drive impact gun.The reason is you have to remove the cv axle nut and axle out of the way before removing the bearing and hub.The axle nut requires a couple hundred foot pounds to remove.The procedure is:Jack vehicle safely off the ground,remove wheel and tire.Remove axle retaining nut.Remove balljoint nut and bolt,pry down on lower control arm,and disengage balljoint and lower arm from spindle.Now the axle can be released from the hub,but leave the other end of the axle in the trans,just set off to the side out of the way.At this point,there are two ways to change the bearing.The wheel bearing is a double roller,cartridge type with the hub containg the wheel studs,pressed into the bearing.Remove the entire spindle assembly from the suspension strut,OR leave the spindle attached to the strut,and remove the bearing and hub from the spindle.Some guys swear by taking the spindle to a press,and pressing the bearing assembly out with a bottle jack.I just use a bushing driver set,and ball peen hammer,and remove the hub from the bearing...then remove the snap ring retaing the bearing in the spindle,then drive the bearing out of the spindle with the hammer and drivers.There you have it.Reverse procedure for reassembly

Actually its easier that what the other guy said. lift your hood, look at the headlight there will be two rods that u can pull on the top of the light where it sits in the frame. pull those and u can then pull your headlight out, that will make it alot easier to get to.
Hope This Helps.

you have to remove the whole headlight assembly, then pop off the front cover pull the old bulb out and put the new one in. reverse the process to re-install. there is a small plastic tab on the topfront of the headlight assembly, that is what you need to release to get the clear cover off and get inside.

First, you need to pry off the cover for each light. The best way is to find the side of the cover that has the arrow etched into it. It has a longer lip, and is easier to pry with a screwdriver. Once off, turn the light housing counterclockwise to get it out of the light cover. Then pull out the bulb (for one, I had to use a rubber gripper, the other one came out very easy). Replace the bulb and then twist the bulb housing clockwise to get in. When putting the light cover back in, the small fixed plastic notch on the light cover goes on the side of the opening without the notch. The longer, flexible notch (like on a remote control) goes on the other side and snaps right in. Took me about 5-7 minutes on the first one.

Testimonial: "Thanks will give it a try."
This is straight from the owner's manual.
#1 Make sure the headlamp switch is in the OFF position and open the trunk.
#2 Carefully pull the carpet away to expose the backside of the tail lamp assembly.
#3 Remove the nut and washer assemblies, then pull the lamp assembly away from the vehicle.
#4 Remove the bulb socket by rotating it counterclockwise, then pulling it out of the lamp assembly.
#5 Pull the bulb straight from the socket.
Install new bulb(s) in reverse order.
