Does the suspension or wheel hub have to be removed when replacing the front wheel bearing? Is this something I can do in my driveway? I've replaced wheel bearings before but not on a newer car... What needs to be done to replace this part?

this vehicle takes a wheel bearing/ hub assembly, its all one part with the wheel studs and a sensor on it. replace as an assembly.

What needs to be done to replace it as an assembly? I have the three 15mm bolts removed from the inside of the wheel flange. I have the nut removed from the axle too but I have not been able to get the assembly to come apart at all.
