REPLACING WHEEL BEARINGS

2001 Nissan Maxima

Drive Train Axles Bearings problem
2001 Nissan Maxima 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic

My wheel bearings on the front drivers side need to be replaced. How do I take the hub off to take it to a shop to have the bearing pressed on.

REMOVAL: Remove the wheel bearing lock nut
Remove brake caliper assembly and rotor.
Separate tie-rod from knuckle. Install stud nut on stud bolt to prevent damage to stud bolt.
Separate drive shaft from knuckle by lightly tapping it. If it is hard to remove, use a puller. Cover boots with shop towel so as not to damage them when removing drive shaft.
Loosen lower ball joint tightening nut.
Separate knuckle from lower ball joint stud.
Remove knuckle from transverse link.
