Hi Nev, i looked for an online repair guide, but I couldn't find one. You should get your hands on a Chilton or Haynes manual. They are available at any Auto Parts store and at most libraries. It will have step by step instructions on how to remove the wheel bearings.

very complex assembly i change them all the time, you need to remove the axle nut and the lateral link bolt. 97 they were pressed in hub bearing so you need to remove the hub fronm the car and press the bearing out.
