I don't wish to insult you but replacing the front wheel bearing of a front wheel drive vehicle requires the sort of tool kit and skill level that if you need to ask how you do you do it you are unlikely to possess.
By the time a wheel bearing needs replacing it has been subjected to years of heat, cold and moisture and removing the bearing from the hub can be fraught with difficulties not covered by an average repair manual, difficulties which needs experience and equipment to overcome. As if that isn't bad enough the work needed to clean and prepare the hub to accept the new bearing needs the realisation the assembly is a piece of precision equipment requiring very high standards if the replacement bearing is to have the best chance of returning a good life-span. This is also true of actually fitting the new bearing where if pressure isn't applied correctly it can be ruined in a second or have it's working life seriously shortened.
I suggest you ask an experienced someone else to fit the bearing this time while you observe.
usually a screw on the striker (the bit sticking out that goes into the door) it will be a slotted adjustment so just loosen (not remove) the screw and pull it out a mm or 2. retighten and test. Also, clean the seal. While your at it, the sump filters and spray arms.
