SOURCE: how to replace front wheel
I can tell you on a 93 Altima that you have remove the entire wheel knuckle and press it out from the rear. Yeah, the knuckle, remove the strut tower bolts, drive train ( which can be lighty pressed out ), caliper and bracket, and remove the ball joint. There's a snap ring at the back of the wheel knuckle that holds the bearing, then press it out with a socket and a table vice or something to that effect. By the way the going commercial rate if you take it to a shop and have them do it starts at $150 for labor. Worth it, oh yeah.

firstly remove the wheel trim and undoo the big nut on the end of the drive shaft,Then jack up and remove wheel and put stand under body remove the lower track control arm pinch bolt from lower suspension .remove brake caliper separate the lower arm from the bottom of the strut then push the drive shaft through the hub assembly and its clear .cut off old boot and look for the circlip that hold the end on which should be in the centre if the unit in a recess to allow access to the ends of the clip .You shouldnt need to remove the whole shaft just spread the clip and tap with a copper hammer.wash the thing out with diesel and take the balls out and give it a good clean ,rebuild and pack with grease slide the new rubber down the drive shaft ,refit the end but dot hit the threasded bit with a hammer put a block of wood their first then tap it on.Refit the suspension and away you go

SOURCE: replacing CV Joints
Yes you can remove the drive shaft by unbolting the bottom ball joint,then removing the nut that holds the shaft in the hub I would'nt recommend trying to replace just the CV joint as this can be a very complicated procedure involving specialized tools and more than just general mechanical skill,this isn't true of all,as some CV's come apart fairly easily.If the joint is bad you should probably just replace the axle.Remember to match mark any adjustable parts you may have to disassemble,and when you reassemble make sure to check the splines of the shaft and the drive hub,remove any foreign material and carefully file or sand any burs or scratches,any of these can cause the spline to bind on reassembly and possibly cause irreparable damage to one or both parts.Good luck hope this helps.

you have to replace bearing and hub as a unit.you have to remove remove brakes and caliper rotor set them aside dont disconnect brake line. get a piece of clothes rack wire to hold brake caliper .do not let it hang by brake hose. you got to remove hub nut. best way to do that is loosen it a litttle while tire still on weight of car keep wheel from turning .
