Hello,I will be glad to try and assist you with this,Welcome to Just Answer.


I apologize as I don't have any pictures to post on this but here is the step by step instructions you are requesting for this procedure to replace the wheel bearing:

1. Remove Front Brake Rotor.
2. Disconnect wheel speed sensor electrical connector (if equipped).
3. Remove electrical connector from connector bracket.
4. Remove front wheel drive axle nut.
NOTICE: Be careful not to allow drive axle boot to contact any part of vehicle. Contact may cause the boot to rip requiring boot replacement.
5. Suspend or support drive axle from strut spring with mechanics wire.
6. Remove and discard wheel bearing/hub bolts.
NOTICE: Never pull on the shaft assembly. If difficulty is encountered in separating axle from hub, tap on end of drive axle shaft using a block of
wood and a hammer. Do not hammer directly on end of axle.
7. Remove wheel bearing/hub assembly and shield.
NOTICE: During wheel bearing installation drive shaft splines must line up with wheel bearing splines. Failure to do so will damage wheel bearing
hub and axle shaft assemblies.
IMPORTANT: Do not tighten fastener at this time.
1. Install wheel bearing/hub assembly and shield onto shaft.
2. Install wheel bearing/hub to knuckle bolts.
Wheel Bearing/Hub-to-Knuckle Bolts: 130 Nm (96 ft. lbs.)
3. Install drive axle shaft nut.
Front Axle-to-Knuckle Nut: 205 Nm (151 ft. lbs.)
4. Install wheel speed sensor electrical connector to bracket (if equipped).
5. Connect wheel speed sensor electrical connector.
6. Install front brake rotor.
