The manuel has you remove the entire spindle to replace the hub. What you can do is remove the caliper and rotor. Remove outer tie rod end nut to the spindle and separate from there. Remove the axle nut and pull the spindle away from the axle. Remove the 4 screws behinde the spindle and the hub will fall out. Once the hub is out you can spin the bearing by hand and feel if the bearing is binding. If it is you have found the problem. Use new screws when installing the hub. Tighten crosswise. Tighten to 20 Nm. Then tighten to 65 Nm. Finally angle-tighten 60 °
Hope this helps.
