Remove the wheel, remove the cap from the centre of the hub using a flat blade screw driver and a hammer. On the newly uncovered nut you'll see a locking tab, use a flat blade screw driver to open the tab which will allow the nut to be undone. Turn the nut anti clockwise using a 24mm (I think) socket and breaker bar. With the nut removed, you need to undo the nut and bolt connecting the hub to the lower suspension arm. With this bolt removed the hub can be moved so the drive shaft can be tapped out of the hub. Now, the coil spring.... Don't worry about the coil spring when your undoing the suspension arm, with the shock absorber attached the spring won't move. Good luck.
