the bearing is one non-dissasemblable unit, it has to be pressed out and in. best done by someone who has the right tools.

If a bearing is bad, You will hear a whining noise from the bad bearing. Try to listen if it is up front or back. The noise will get louder as you go faster. Turn left and right to determine what side the bad bearing is on. If you turn left and the noise gets louder, the right bearing is bad, turn right and the noise gets louder, the left bearing is bad.
The front wheel bearing on a 2001 Nissan Maxima is replaced by removing the wheel, prying off the bearing cover, and removing the retaining pin. The retaining nut can then be taken out, the calipers removed, and the rotor pulled to allow access to the bearing.
It really isn't hard but to do it right get a manual on your car from AUTOBOOKSONINE.COM. It will help on the next repair also.
I had a bad right front wheel bearing on my 2004 ford ranger 4X4. When the mechanic took it for a ride he swore it was the left front wheel bearing that was bad but when he got it on the lift it turned out to be the right front.300 dollars for the part and 85 dollars for the labor plus tax.
Worn left front wheel bearing.
You must remove the spindle a get to the bearing .The bearing is pressed into the spindle,this is not an easy task, removing the spindle involves disconnecting or removing brakes,tie rod ,lower ball joint,ect
More than likely you have a defective left front wheel bearing. Inspect the bearing and also inspect the bearing on the right front. Inspect your brake pads if this is not the problem.
not easily or quietly
It sounds like you have more probalem than wheel bearing. TAke it to a front end shop
