    ...and its a bolt... that needs replacing ideally...

    ...and you will need a press to press out the flange and bearing... (as well as press it back in of course)

    You will need to pull the suspension strut out the top, ball joint from the bottom, brake caliper and disc and track rod end to remove the hub carrier... then you need to press out the drive flange from the rear of the carrier first, undo the circlip then press out the bearing from the front... press the new bearing in from the rear and fit the new circlip, press the flange from the front supporting the inside part of the bearing else it will just push this out and destroy the bearing... refit the hub carrier and attach all the bits you removed... the hub bolt needs to be done to a procedure... further helpful info includiong doing up the hub bolt can be found here..
