    FWD? Not too bad. Loosen big nut, take wheel off, remove caliper, remove carrier (tight nuts!), remove disc. The bearings will drop out but you need to get the races out too. Get a flathead screwdriver and carefully tap around the edges with a hammer until they come out. Hammer new races into place, fill with grease, put bearings in, refit disc, job done.
