There are some tricks to this...but so you don't damage the cv-axle itself you should use the second tool shown, once the knuckle is out, you can put it in a vice and use a suitable sized piece of pipe or a socket an hammer the old one out, the tricky part is to hammer or I suggest press the bearing into the hub with the flange...if you don't have a press, take it to a machine shop...
