I think you must replace the entire hub assembly. You need a shop manual to do this correctly.

Yes is fairly easy job because the wheel bearing comes off whit the brake rotor just remove the brake caliper the rotor center cap the safety ping and the center nut on the brake rotor the hole thing will come off but "NOTE" you are going to need a new brake rotor because if the bearing was bad probably the rotor is bad to a new grease retainer seal and of course plenty of grease. Good luck :)

SOURCE: replacing the right wheel bearing how do u remove

is it a 4x4? the wheel bearing comes with a new hub assembley . Just find out what size the front half shaft nut/ lock nut/axle nut- is. its probably a 33mm thats the only special tool you will need. Unscrew it, take your outer tie rod off the spindle/steering knuckle, theres 3 bolts behind it, take them off then disconect the abs harness and pry out the old hub assembley use a rubber hammer (dead blow hammer) to tap the half shaft out if seized. when installing the new wheel bearing see your manufacturer specs. for torquing the axle nut back on.

SOURCE: replace left front wheel bearing on 2002 yukon 4x4 abs

Remove the axle nut. Put a punch in the fins of the rotor to keep the hub from spinning. Remove the caliper and the rotor. Unplu the abs harness. Remove the three bolts that hold the hub to the knuckle. Remove the hub/bearing from the knuckle. Reverse to install. Make sure you torque the three bolts that hold the bearing to the knuckle and the axle nut to the correct torques spec. Failure to do so will cause premature bearing failure. Also use a good quality bearing. SKF is a good brand. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using!

Unfortunately you do not always get "play" in the bearing and they are unserviceable. Replace the entire unit. Here are the instructions for replacement. They bolt into place making it pretty easy to do. Soak the CV shaft which pertrudes from the hub where the nut goes with a good rust penetrant to ease in removal.

Removal & Installation

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
  2. Remove or disconnect the following:

    Front wheel Wheel Speed Sensor (WSS) electrical connector Brake caliper and bracket Rotor Driveshaft nut
  3. Install a front hub removal tool to the wheel bearing/hub assembly with three wheel nuts. Use the tool to push the driveshaft out of the wheel bearing/hub.
  4. Remove the wheel bearing/hub assembly and discard the bolts.

To install:
  1. Install or connect the following:

    Wheel bearing/hub assembly using new bolts and torque them to 96 ft. lbs. (130 Nm) New drive shaft nut and torque it to 118 ft. lbs. (160 Nm) Brake rotor Front caliper with the bracket WSS electrical connector Front wheel

Wheel bearing assembly

I assume front.
I just finished this job on my 01 Aurora. 1) Loosen Axle Nut - 33mm (with tire on ground so you don't torque the trannie) 2) Remove wheel 3) Remove caliper 4) Remove Tie-Rod end 5) Remove bolts holding strut to wheel assy. 6) Remove axle nut 7) Remove 3 bolts holding wheel bearing (I use a lot of PB Blaster on nuts and around the flange of the wheel bearing.) 8) Disconnect the wheel Speed sensor wire. 9) Remove wheel bearing - it may be stuck. I use PB Blaster and a big cement chisel to get it loose 10) At this point I always replace the Half-Shaft if the car has 100K miles or more. The only cost $50.00 and you've aready done all the work to get to it. 11) Just tap the axle spline to remove the wheel bearing - you don't need a puller or anything like that. 12) Put it all back together. Don't forget the plate that holds the wheel speed sensor clip - I always seems to forget this!
Good luck.
P.S. I was sure the wheel bearing noise was coming from my L.F. bearing, but it had no play in it. (Hold wheel at the 12 and 6 positions and see if you have any play.) So at the last minute I jacked of the R.F. and found just a bit of play. I went for the R.F. and that was the one that was bad.

looks like they have a sealed bearing and are sold as a bearing hub assy for about $140. to replace it remove the wheel, then the cotter pin and nut in the center of the hub. then pull the hub/bearing off. this is easier said than done but with penetrating oil, hard work, and a large hammer you should be able to remove it.
