If you are talking about the front wheel hub bearings you have to do quite a bit of work but I'll walk you through it because these bearings are pressed in and will have to be pressed out and back in. Jack the front end of the car up and remove the wheels, remove the brake caliper and rotor. Remove the axle nut from the center of the hub you will have to undo the lower ball joint and take it loose from the spindle, remove the bolts from the strut to the spindle, tap and the end of the shaft with the nut in place so as not to mess up the threads on the shaft. Take to a machine shop and have them pressed out and the new ones in.

How to change front wheel bearings on a 1996geo prism


To change the bearings on the front of the prizm, you will need to remove the steering knuckle unless you have the means of an on car bearing press, such as a "tomcat". You will have to remove the wheel, caliper, rotor, outer tie rod end nut, axle nut, lower ball joint mounting bolts, steering knuckle to strut mount bolts. press the hub from the knuckle assembly, remove internal snap ring that retains bearing and press the bearing out the other side of the knuckle. Reverse proceedure to install. You will need an alignment once you are done.
Good luck

I HAVE A 1999 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE, 112,000 MILES. JUST FOUND OUT BALL BEARINGS NEED REPLACING. THE MECHANIC SAID WOULD COST $1,600- $1,700 TO FIX AND THAT THE RODS OR CRANK MAY NEED REPLACING BUT HE WILL...


The front bearings on a Jeep should have lasted longer but, there you go. When he disassembles the front end to replace them he should check the steering linkage and suspension since they are weaker than the bearings and even more prone to give out.
If you don't do the repair the wheels might fall off, kind of a downer, that.

Steps needed to replace front lower ball joint on 1998 vw jetta


these are actually easy to replace on these cars.
there are 3 small bolts that hold the ball joint to the control arm. new ball joints are sold with new hardware, so don't worry if it gets damaged when removing.
mark the postion of the old ball joint. they can be moved slightly on the control arm to change alignment.
the top of the ball joint is clamped into the wheel bearing housing with one large bolt.
I use a very large & dull chisel to spread the clamp on the bearing housing if the top of the ball joint is difficult to pull out of the wheel bearing housing.
