first you break the lug nuts lose. Then you need to remove the large nut that is in the center of the wheel. jack the car up and remove the tire. BLOCK YOUR CAR! At least the e brake. Then use jack stands to support it. Next there are a few options. some remove the caliper but it is not a must. You will need to remove the bolt holding the ball joint in place. Then you will need a "pickle fork"/ ball joint/ tie rod separator. Most parts stores have these for rent or loan. You will need to separate the ball joint from the rest of the hub/spindle.

Next you'll need to POP the end of the shaft that connects to the trans. To do this you can use a small pry bar. and use a fast jerk. you'll know when its lose. you don't need to take it all the way out yet. Just get it lose. Now go back to the front. You should be able to pull the hub/spindle back and too the right. you can now remove the half shaft.

To put the new one in you need to grease the snap ring. place it in the middle of the shaft end and slide it into the trasns. Make sure the spline teeth are aligned and then put your hub and spindle back together. after you have everything but the tire and the last large nut that goes in the middle of the tire back on. you'll need to seat the end that is in the trans. To do this I put the nut on as far as the end of the threads so you don't mess them up. then use a block of wood and a large hammer to snap it back in. if you don't snap it in it wont work!! after you have it in put your tire back on and lower your car to the ground. Your going to need a to tork the large bolt to ( I think I didn't look it up for this car but most are 100) 100. Your good to drive.

you may have lost some trans fluid but most likely not. If so make sure you check it and refill what is missing. to check it your car needs to be warmed up and running in park. Good luck
