Not too bad. Just remove the Wheel and the Brake Calipers. Then remove the Dust Cap off the Center of the Rotor. Inside there is a Bolt with a Cotter Pin In it. Remove the Cotter Pin and the Bolt. The Rotor will now Slide off the Spindle, The Bearings are Loose and Probably inside the Rotor. Remove these Bearings and get a Tube of High Temp Grease. Put a Big gobb of grease in the Palm of your hand and Roll the Bearing around in your Hand. Be sure to use your Fingers on the Inside of the Bearings to get it in. The same Goes with New Bearings.

The brake master cylinder reservoir has a separate chamber and is used to supply the hydraulic clutch system. So make sure master cylinder reservoir is full.
Here is a pic of the system.

Buy Chilton or Haynes manual.
Break loose lug nuts. (One turn)
Lift car with jack.
Remove brake caliper and hang with something other than the brake line.
Remove brake rotor.
Remove large hub nut. Borrow socket from auto parts store.
Hub should slide off. A 2 jaw puller may be needed if it doesn't slide right off.
You are supposed to discard the hub nut and buy a new one. I always reuse mine...
After installing new hub, torque hub nut at 188-254 ft-lbs. (Which is a lot.)
Reinstall everything in reverse order.
Now is a good time to clean and lube the caliper slide pins and check the condition of the brake pads.
Torque lug nuts 85-105 ft-lbs.

noises during slow tight turns are usually CV joints going bad. A way to check, is to jack up one front wheel, set the parking brake, and put the car in drive without pressing the gas. Turn the wheel to both extremes, and listen for the noise. Repeat with the other front wheel (set the first one back down) and listen. Whichever makes the noise, is the side you need to change.
