im assuming its front wheel drive or all wheel drive. usually whit these i just knock off the spindle and bring it down to a local maching shop they press these things in and out for you for about 80 bux usually.( these newer cars usually have one piece bearings that you kneed a press to uninstall ind install a new one) if you know how to get the axek nut off and separate 2 ball joints and a tie rod end. your in pretty good shape.
first thing i do usually is take off the hub cap(leave it on the ground and in park/ebrake on) find out what size the axle nut is b4 you start cause there usually kinda big and metric like 22 mm or so.... obviously verry dependant on the vehicle. any ways the nut usually has a sleve type thing above the nut which is hit whith a chizel into a grove on the axel so it wont slip. its like a newstaye castle nut just so it wont back out. you have to bend that out so the sleve is semi round again. then (again the car is still on the groung tire on) get a big breaker bar some of these are tourqued to 200 ft lbs or more you might even wanna get someone to step on the break if the tire slips on the ground. loosen the nut and take it off. then jack up the car take the wheel off take off the break caliper(2 bolts usually) take off the wheel speed sensor and any mounting brackets attached to the spindle. loosen and remove all the nuts on both uper and lower controll arm and the ones on the tir rod end. seperate the 2 ball joints and the tie rod end(some cars have stuts instead of an upper controll arm. these uaually have 2 bolts that attach them to the spindle in that case just unbolt them and remove the spindle.) bring the spindle and new bearing assembly to a machene shop have them install the new one. get a new axel nut put everything back together find out the torque speec for the nut (if you cant then just pay attention to about how hard it was to get off and do the same when puttin git on) good luck!!!

You can find the maintenance schedule in the owners manual. If you do not have an owners manual you can pick one up at your dealers parts department.

SOURCE: replacing serpentine belt
Click on the following direct Link. It has the Serpentine Belt Diagram that you will need depending on your engine size (2.0L or 3.0L) and your options (AC/No AC ect.).
Standard Rules to Removal the Serpentine Belt with a Tensioner:
1. Find the Tensioner(s). (See Diagrams on Link)
2. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool, Or Wrench OR Ratchet, Rotate/Move the Tensioner USING THE AVAILABLE NUT (on the Pulley or Arm Base) OR the OPENING (3/8ths or 1/2 inch square opening) rotating the Tensioner Pulley/Arm - moving it away from contact with the belt and towards the area where the belt is not in contact with the Tensioner Pulley. The Tensioner is spring loaded, and is hard to rotate/move.
3. Remove the loosened belt off one of the other more easily accessed Pulleys.
4. DO NOT quickly release the Tensioner, but gently allow the Tensioner to rest in its closed position.
Standard Rules for Installing the Serpentine Belt with Tensioners:
a. Pick a Pulley that is most easily accessed. This will usually be on top. This will be the last Pulley that the belt will go on.
b. Using the Diagram: Install the new Serpentine Belt on the remainder of the Pulleys....over, under, left right.
c. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool or Wrench or Ratchet Tool: Rotate/Move the Tensioner Pulley/Arm "away" from Belt contact area on the Tensioner. This spring is pretty hard and with a new belt, it will be even harder to install. Rotate/Move this to as-close to the maximum allowed inorder to have enough slack in the belt to get it up and over the last pulley.
d. Using your other hand - Pull the Belt up and over the Last remaining Pulley.
e. Before releasing the pressure on the Tensioner, visually inspect the remainder Pulleys and the Belts' Positioning on them
