The hub assembly IS the wheel bearing assembly. It is held onto the spindle with three or four bolts from the back side. The hardest part is separating the bearing from the spindle. Use a flat chisel between them to get it started, or if it isn't rusted in too tightly, you might be able to just loosen the bolts half way and hit them with a hammer. Don't hit so hard as to damage them. Also be aware the brake splash shield is sandwiched in there. Be sure to flatten any damage you cause to it so the new bearing sits flush. Don't put any vehicle weight on the new bearing until the axle nut is torqued to specs or it will be damaged and become noisy.
