Ok, what I have done is attached a full factory repair information link.It shows all steps involved. As far as tools? the main one would be a toque wrench capable of 177 ft lbs to tighten the axle nut, You can usually rent one at parts stores. Tools? you need a set of metric sockets and metric wrenches, No way for me to say what each and every one should be. Most of the bolts are no larger than 17mm. The axle nut? they used 3 different sizes. You need to measure across the nut in MM. normally 30 mm but could be 32 mm and all parts stores sell the socket for the nut. You will not be using any thread lock , You can put never seize on the axle shaft when you go back together but nothing is required. The axle nut is staked to hold it from loosening. You will see all this in the repir information. Here is the link on how to change the hub bearing assembly
