I have a 2004...
I have a 2004 KIA Sedona mini-van. The right front wheel bearing went bad. I've never worked on front wheel drive assemblies so I need with detailed procedures on how to remove and reinstall the hub assembly.

Again, I don't have any experience working on front wheel drives, so as much detail as possible on this procedure would be greatly appreciated. I'm on an urgent schedule to get this back on the road as this is the only van in our shuttle service that has wheelchair accessability, and we've already had to cancel service for several clients...
