Question about 2001 Saturn SL
I have had my front wheel bearings replaced twice, and was told that entire assembly had to be replace, and that the new ones were faulty. Now I was told by someone else, that it is not the full assembly that would be replaced, just the bearings as they are press in. Can you clear this up for me? Thanks in advance.
Your car has pressed in bearings not a hub assembly like most cars they are indeed pressed in and if done incorrectly they will fail fast thanx Chris

it should come out once you have disconnected:Brakes,strut,ball joint.tire rod end,cv joint!if it is not put the cv joint nut back on until safe enough to give it a tap with hammer to knock back & out shaft this should come as one piece HUB the bearing is pressed in! better to change whole HUB good luck this hopefully helped you out!

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
