Very easy if you have the tools, you will need metric sockets for the wheel bearing bolts and I hink a 32 mm for the axle nut, if you have the right tools let me know on this post and I will give you directions

Ok first remove the wheel, then remove the large axle nut, then remove a lower or upper ball joint nut, make sure there is a jack under the control arm as you will need to hold it in place then lower it down to get the knucle off od the ball joint, you may have to remove the sway bar end link, but by the time you get this far you will know if you have too, pull the knuckle outward and watch the axle slide out it may take a little force, then there will be four nuts on the backisde holding the bearing in, take tose out, oh and you may have to remove the brake caliper and seatand rotor but when you get the bolts out you will see if you have to or not, soory if its not real clear, im still half asleep

if you need more help just post here again, but if you look at it closely before you start you should be fine, its a gravy job its just that some models and years require different disassembly but not much
oh I forgot to mention instead of puling the caliper seperate just look behine it and pull the two lage bolts and the caliper and seat will come off in one piece saving time

thanks, jim
