No, it is not a carrier bearing. It could be a hub bearing that supports that side to keep the wheel straight.
Does the car make a lot of noise while driving? If it is a bearing, it will make a lot of noise. Okay, I attached the procedure for removing the hub bearings for the front wheel. You will need a puller as described in the repair procedure itself.
Once you remove the bearings, I would inspect for scoring and damage. Replace both the bearing and the race if there is any damage.
You will need a long punch and a hammer to remove and install the races.
