Default Need To Replace Right Front Wheel Bearing

Couldn't really find a write up or a thread that answered my questions...

But I need to replace my front wheel hub bearing and instead of taking the bearing out and have to go through the trouble of getting the new one pressed in, I'm thinking of just buying the whole hub+bearing assembly from autozone.

So i was wondering how hard it is to remove and replace the hub? And how do I go about doing it.

I can do my brakes easily and I did my struts+springs recently and it was pretty easy. So im pretty sure I can do this but just need more info before I jump into it.

Any info wud be greatly appreciated.

ok heres a quick break down , depending on if its the driver side or passenger side ( I got $5 BUCKS on the Passenger side )


Jack up the car , secure it on jackstands.
Wheels off.

Your going need to take the 2 lower bolts off the struts (17mm 19mm)

Remove the cotterpin on the axle, then take the castle washer off ( if you have this )
IIRC you need a 22 or 24 socket to remove the axle nut, once thats loose you need to push the axle towards the engine bay or guide the whole wheel hub and get the axle out of the way.

Your going to need to take the 2 bolts that hold the caliper bracket ( 19mm) and support the calipers with tie wraps or bungee cord near the springs or up above area so its out of the way and not hanging on the brake lines or stress on the lines.

remove the rotor and you should have access now to the wheel hub, spray it down with some PB blaster and let it soak for 10 mins before you start working on it. ( makes it easier )
