Question about 2000 Hyundai Accent
The trick is getting under the car safely. Do not use jacks alone. Make sure you put the jacks under the car frame and not the suspension system. When you have removed the tires, you'll have visibility to everything that needs to be removed. You'll need an air impact wrench to remove the CV joint axle nut. This nut is usually 18 to 22 mm. Your local auto parts store will sell the socket that you need. The passenger side is more difficult than the driver's side.
1. Remove tires.
2. Remove brakes and system components.
3. Loosen the strut bolts at the top. Remove all strut bolts at the bottom.
4. Move the suspension to the side.
5. Pry out CV joints.
6. Note: be careful of ABS sensor wire.
Please understand that steps one through four are in simple form. A certified mechanic can do it in a morning. As a home mechanic, a full day should be allowed for the process.

How hard is relative, I will say it is an involved process. Some special tools and a good manual if you have not done it before. So, to me it would be hard.

Yes, how hard is relative, it varies depending on the tools you have, how much experience you have in such processes, what kind of life the car has "lived", even can be different in difficulty between two brand new ones at the dealership, depending on how many test-drives each has been on and all that. Parts could be stuck too, and that adds another dimension to it all.
