    You have to remove the steering knuckle, Remove tie rod end from the knuckle , detach the ball joint, remove the axle nut, brake caliper and mount, remove brake disc, remove two bolts that go through strut. After steering knuckle is off car remove the inner grease seal, cir clip and then press hub outward to separate from bearing, drive bearing race inward and assemble in reverse order the align steering.
    You may want to bring the steering hub to a automotive machine shop they wont charge too much to press out one bearing and press in another. If done wrong you will damage the cartridge style bearing.
