I've done this job several times using a bench vise and an old bearing to press out the bad one. Not an easy job, easy to ruin the new bearing by not pressing the new one in straight. Most shops will be able to press the old and new for few dollars. Oh yeah, there is an internal Circlip that has to be removed first, a job in itself....

this is not really a DIY job,you will need some special tools to remove the bearing and refit the new one.If you know enough to remove the hub assembly then i will explain how to remove the bearing and fit the new one,failing which remove the hub assembly and take it to a local engineers/re-conditioners to have the bearing pressed in and out

SOURCE: replace front wheel bearings

The bearings in your car are pressed into a hub. If the part is available as an assembly, it can be replaced that way. Generally on a front drive car:
Remove wheels and brake calipers
If it is pressed in: remove the rotors, disconnect the drive shafts and remove the steering knuckle. Then the old bearing is pressed out and the new one pressed in with a machine shop press. If the bearing is part of the hub, that will be unbolted and the new one swapped.

On a scale of 1-10 difficulty, Id rate it a strong 7

Go to YouTube ask the same question with a DIY. You need special tools that you can rent/borrow from Autozone or others. Probably a 2 out 5 on the difficulty level just because it takes strong hands to use the tools. good luck
