You need air tools, many differnet size sockets and a press. The strut/spindle and lower control arm have to come out all together. leaving the axle in the car.The spinlde cannot be removed from the strut. once removed, you can then unbolt the lower control arm ball joint nut, and seperate the lower control from the spindle - for ease for the press. press the hub out, remove the snap rings on either side and press the old bearing out. press in new bearing , install snap rings, press the hub in and reinstall. I just did one today... I have 15 years experience as a ford tech - Ugh bro.. - Josh

to change that, using a hydraulic press is highly recommended. if you are DIY experienced, this trick works as well:
take a pice of a stable metal pipe, 10-20 cm long. and in diameter just a tick smaller than gross bearing size. take a very heavy tool and use the pipe to beat out the old bearing. dont be shy, needs a lot of power.
do not use this method to insert the new bearing. use a pice of wood instead (must sit stable on the outer bearing ring!!), lubircate a bit and beat carfully and very straigt in fractions of a mm. this is the difficult part and here the bearing may brake if you are too rough.
Not really recommend, but working when used with brain and care.

SOURCE: how to replace wheel bearing hub
its not the same. the gm is a bolt on hub and bearing. on the mazda, its a press in. you need to remove the steering knuckle and use a hydraulic press to press the old one out and the new one in.

the car does not need to be aligned after a wheel bearing replacement. it is a good idea to get this done every 6 months depending on driving habits though. good maintenance.

Clicking, especially while turning usually more so points to a problem with the CV joint, or axel, the easiest way to test a wheel baring is to jack up that side of the truck until the tire is off the ground, leave the lug nuts on and try to wobble the tire in all directions, if everything seems solid it is not likely the bearing casuse the sound, another note when a bearing starts to go bad, it usually hums opposed to clicks. Im sorry i dont have a diagram, but this proceedure should get you on the right track in diagnosing the issure, good luck!!
