It depends on what year, make and model of vehicle. Some vehicles have wheel bearing assemblies which must be replaced as units and some use cone-type wheel bearings. Generally, with either type, you must first remove the wheel, the brake caliper, and the slip-on type of rotor. Then the process diversifies depending on the style of wheel bearing involved and whether the vehicle is front wheel drive, rear wd, all wd, or 4wd.

For specific details, you will have to ask a more specific question.

Remove wheel bearings?

The front bearings are pressed into the hub. Take the axles out of the hub and remove the steering knuckle/hub assembly. Take them to a machine shop and have the bearings pressed out and back in again. The rear bearings you just take off the grease cap. Unstake the keeper washer and take the nut off. Then you can pull the outer bearings out. then replace the nut on the spindle and pull out again which will take the inner bearing out along with the seal.

Where are hub bearings located?

When you remove the front wheels on a vehicle, there is usually a cap on the center of the 'hub'- the part you removed the wheel from by loosening and removing the wheel nuts. If you remove that cap with a flat screwdriver or other small pry bar, you will see the hub bearings inside. They are usually roller bearings that have grease all over them. You should read a repair manual if you are going to remove them and/or replace them.

How do you replace a wheel bearing on a Volvo s40?

This depends on if you are replacing the front or rear wheel bearings. The front wheel bearings require that you remove the brake caliper and disc assemblies (this is required for the rear bearings as well) You will also need to remove the front driveshaft from the hub, after which the hub will unbolt and can be removed from the vehicle. S40's have the annoying habit of having the driveshafts rust into the hub, so you may have some difficulty with that. The rear hub assemblies are also removed in a similar way, except you don't have to remove the driveshaft as it wont have one! If you are replacing the bearings with genuine Volvo units they should come as a whole hub assembly, in which case all you have to do is bolt the new units in and off you go. However if you are just replacing the bearings themselves, you'll require the use of a heavy duty bech press to remove the bearings from the housing.
