Wheel off then wheel hub. The bearings are pressed into the hub centres. Some have inner and outer bearings but a single bearing can be found. It would be good to take the hub to a workshop and have the bearings pressed out and new ones pressed in. It can be done by using a drift slight smaller than the outer diameter of the bearing and knocking it out with a heavy hammer, takes several heavy blows. Two part bearings have to be pushed from the centre of the hub outwards as they are pressed in from the outside of the hub bores and move one way only. New bearings can be carefully tapped in the same way.
