Question about 2004 Saturn ION
How hard is it to replace rod bearings
If you have to ask it's way over your head. Rod bearings are about as deep into an engine as it gets. Best bet is to pull the engine and take it to a machine shop.

Put the car's front on jackstands(front suspension hanging down) and chock the rear wheels.Remove the tire/wheel.Remove the bolt/nut for the lower balljoint.Remove the cotter pin on the large spindle nut.Remove the nut(you'll need a 1/2 or larger impact gun with the correct impact socket).Dislodge the ball joint from the knuckle(a large punch rapped on the sides of the knuckle hole will help to break it loose).Lower the control arm and pull the knuckle outward(the axle shaft should now slide out).Now you should be able to remove the bolts that retain the bearing assembly.Reassemble in reverse order,thread locking compound on the bolts for the bearing is probably a good idea.
