To remove the wheel hub also known as the bearing, you have to remove the large nut on the cv axle (1), then remove the 3 bolts on the back of the hub. You may have to hit the wheel bearing to get it to come loose, it should come off. You may have to use oil and let it soak on the axle where the nut was, some times the axle will not let the bearing come off.
