Question about 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier
The wheel bearings on your car is contained in a sealed wheel hub. You have to change the whole hub to change the bearing. Remove the wheel, the brake caliper, the rotor. There will be three bolts holding the hub on from the back. You will need to remove these bolts and slide the hub off of the spindle. then grease the spindle slide on your new hub and bolt everything back together.

It's not a easy job you will need a press to take the old one out and replace the new one, my advice to you is take the steering knockle out and have your local shop press the bearing out for you and put the new one in. This way you just have to bolt everything back up and your good to go.

SOURCE: How to change wheel bearings
There a bolt in bearing so they are pretty easy. Jack up the car, remove the tire/wheel, remove the caliper, remove the rotor, remove the axle nut, unplug ABS sensor if equipped, remove three bearing to knuckle bolts. remove the bearing.
Make sure you torque the axle nut to the proper spec after installing the new bearing. Failure to do so will cause the new bearing to prematurely fail. Also get a good quality bearing. The less expensive bearings are less expensive for a reason. You don't need the most expensive one but you want one from a good manufacturer.
