are you changing the hub and bearing assembly or the or just the hub? either way ther are a few different ways of doing this. the easiest way, if you are doing it yourself, is to call a salvage yard, and ask for a spindle. this is the "housing" for the "hub and bearing assembly". you replace this by first raising the wheel in question. trhen take it off. remove the brake caliper and brake rotor. do this by removing the two bolts that hold the caliper to the spindle. if the rotor has a lip on the outer edge you may have to use a pry bar or large screrw driver to pry the caliper piston back to get it off. once this is done, hang the caliper some where out of the way with zip ties or a coat hanger or what ever you have. i recomend the bracket on the strut that holds the brake hose. remove the rotor by striking it with a rubber mallet if it isn't already loose. set it aside. next remone the axle nut. these should be 32mm or 1 1/4 inch nuts. try to use six point sockets. after that remove the two nuts/bolts that hold the bottom of the strut to the spindle. by now you should have figured out what the spindle is. if not put back what you have taken off and take your car to a shop. if you got passed the last step, great! next remove the nuts that hold the outer tie rod and ball joint to the spindle. once the nuts are off you will you will need to strike the spindle with a large hammer. dont hit it just anywhere. carefully hit it where the tie rod and ball joint are connected. be careful not to hit the threads of the ball joint or the tie rod. if your car has abs you will also have to remove the abs sensor. finaly lift the spindle off the ball joint and pull it off. install the new/used one in the reverse order. if you insist on having new parts, buy a new hub and bearing assembly, perform the same steps, and take what you have to a maching shop. tghey will remove the old assembly with a hydrauilc press, and install your new parts with the same tool.

The front wheel bearings and hub come as one piece. The bearings alone are not serviceable.

The wheel bearings are not really replaceable by themselves. This is because they are integrated into the hub assembly. So the answer is that you will have to replace the entire hub assembly to replace the bearings.
