Question about 2005 Nissan Maxima
The front wheel bearing is a pressed in bearing. It will require the services of a machine shop to press out the old bearing and press in the new one. What you will need to do is separate the knuckle from the front suspension of the car.
Remove the axle nut. Separate the outer tie rod from the knuckle. Remove the caliper and the rotor. Separate the lower ball joint from the knuckle. Remove the two bolts that hold the knuckle to the strut. Once the knuckle is free you can take it into a machine shop or some auto shops and have the bearing pressed in and out. I will add that it is also common for the front hub (the part that has the wheel studs in it) to wear out on these as well so don't be surprised if they tell you you need one.
