I'm not sure about the '97 model, but on a '96 it is a relatively simple process to change the REAR wheel bearings. The bearings are contained in a sealed hub; you have to replace the entire unit. Once the brake caliper is moved out of the way you remove the small Phillips head screw that retains the brake disc. Remove the cover over the axle bolt with a screw driver and then unpin the locking tab on the nut. Undo the nut and the entire hub can be pulled off quite easily. Replace the hub with the new one and put the remainder of the parts back together.

Happy maintaining,Nick
