My car is making a noise and I think it is the wheel bearing. I wanted to do it myself, so I wonder how much I need to pull off to get into it?

The front wheel bearing comes as a wheel bearing hub assembly three bolts axcessed from the rear/inboard side of the hub assembly.It's not very complicated to replace.There is a company that independent auto repair shops get their information from, this same information is available inexpensively for people that work on their own cars.. The information is year make and model specific, covering repair procedures, torque specifications, fluid capacities and specifications, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect....
