the front bearing are pressed in. so you can do one of two things take the whole car to a repair shop, or you can remove the whole assembly buy bearings and have a shop press then for you. most auto part stores sell them for about $40.00 and shops charge around $25.00 a side to press. as i said if you pull it apart.

Rock Auto (no I do not represent them) sold me a Saturn Front bearing assembly kit which includes a wheel spindle with a pressed on bearing for Approx $56. My unit was not assembled and they graciously credited me with the cost of pressing the bearing on the spindle. The spindle looks like a top hat with at tiny top. The bearing gets pressed on over the top so it is sitting on the rim of the top hat. The wheel studs are aiming down in this analogy. The kit includes a new drive axel nut which should always be replaced on any and all model of cars. The kit includes an internal expanding circlip approx 4" dia. The hardest part of this job on a 1995 SW-2 is removing the disc brake rotor from the wheel hub...especially if car used in a salty environment like central New York State. Good luck!
