Front wheel drive means the end of the CV joint on the drive shaft has to go through a hole down the center of the support axle.
So the support axle has to be wider, and therefore the bearings are always pressed on.
To change them, first you have to take the steering knuckle off so that you can get it to a press.
That mean popping the tie rod with a pickle fork, and removing the brake caliper so that you don't have to open the brake lines.
But first loosen the large nut that holds the CV joint to the axle.
Then you remove the lower balljoint, so that the strut can move out and off the CV joint.
Then you either remove the knuckle off the bottom of the strut, or remove the whole strut off the car. (careful because there are alignment cams between the bottom and top of the strut.
But then you press the stub axle out.
Some cars have a retainer that is a large C clip or a screwed on ring that has to be removed. Some don't have anything.
Then you press the bearing out.
Installation then is the reverse.
And don't try to pound instead of pressing.
It will ruin the bearings.

4 wheel drive light is on in my jeep


vacumn pod on the front axel is stuck on. Jack up the front wheels spin both tires at the same time and see if the front drive shaft turns. If it does the 4x4 on the axel is engaged. The front drive shaft on these should not turn when vacumn pod is disengaged. YJ's have a split axel on the right side inner axel shaft.
