The front wheel bearings are pressed into the knuckle.You need to remove the axle nut,make sure to unstake the nut as to not damage the axle threads,and brake assembly,slide hammer the hub off then remove abs sensor if you have one then remove tie rod end,lower ball joint bolt and nuts,then the strut bolts.After the knuckle is off you will see a circlip on the inside by the bearing remove this then press the bearing out on a shop press.If you don't have a new hub you will also have to use a bearing splitter to get the bearing race off the hub to reuse it.Reverse process for reassembly.Hope that helps as it is not just a bolt on repair.

here is a step by step instructions on how to replace your bearing. please copy and paste the link into your browser for an image.

Removal & Installation
CAUTION The strut assembly-to-steering knuckle attaching bolts are serrated and must not be turned during removal. Hold the bolts stationary in the steering knuckles while removing the nuts, then tap the bolts out using a pin punch.
NOTE Use caution when separating the ball joint stud from the steering knuckle, so the ball joint seal does not get cut.
NOTE Do not allow the driveshaft to hang by the inner C/V joint; it must be supported to keep the joint from separating during this operation.
NOTE The cartridge type front wheel bearing used on this vehicle is not transferable to the replacement steering knuckle. If the replacement steering knuckle does not come with a wheel bearing, a new bearing must be installed in the steering knuckle. Installation of the new wheel bearing and hub must be done before installing the steering knuckle on the vehicle.

Diagnosing the bearings can be tricky depending on severity of wear. Typically - drone noise at highway speeds, squeeling, clicking or grinding noises at low speeds that reduce during braking, or pull off the wheel and brake assembly and check the bearing for slack or smoothness of rotation by hand. While doing this, check the brake assembly thoroughly - generally a more likely culprit of wheel noise.
Wheel bearing replacement is not for the novice backyard mech. - you will need pullers, press, etc. If you can get a rebuilt assembly - much easier.

That doesn't mean you have to go out and buy a 37 mm wrench, the nut should be finger tight, if not a pair of channelock pliers will do. The nut just snugs up the bearing, too tight and it will cook. Pull the lock pin, spin off the nut, bump the rotor with a rubber hammer and the bearing should pop out in your hand, you have to replace the seal when you pull the rotor off. Sometimes the race on the inside gets stuck, sometimes it welds itself to the spindle, depends on how hot you got it, you should be able to tap it off with a hammer and a drive pin from the rear. If you can't get it to move, take a dremel to it and cut the thing in half. I hope this is what you are asking.
