Front wheel bearing replace 4x4

It's pretty simple. -Remove the tire -Install a punch into the fins of the rotor. Rotate the rotor counterclockwise until the punch hits the caliper and remove the axle nut. - I like to remove the outer tie rod end from the knuckle. This makes it easier to get at the caliper bracket bolts and the wheel hub bolts - remove the caliper and the rotor - unplug the abs harness - remove the three bolts that hold the hub to the knuckle. - remove the hub/bearing from the knuckle. The hub may be corroded and frozen a little to the knuckle. Sometimes it can take a bit of hammering to get them to pop. Also make sure you torque the axle nut to the correct torque spec. Failure to do this will causing the bearing to fail early! Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using!

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

Replace front hub assembly

I don't want to leave you hanging out there but you would be better off buying the repair manual for this repair.
You will have a little more to do if it is 4X4, But the jest of it is, first if it is 4X4, remove the nut that hold the CV axle into the hub, the wheel comes off, brake caliper is unbolted and moved out of the way, then the brake support bracket, then slide the spline of the CV inside the hub, Then remove the four bolts that hold the hub to the spindle. Then reverse for reassembly. Note: The hub may be rusted to the spindle so you may want to try soaking that area with a good penetrating oil.
Remember the repair manual. You will need it for the torque specs. for the hub, the brakes, the lug-nuts, and the nut for the CV.
