It's not that hard. You have to remove the hub from the ball joint and axle, etc. Then since you have a press, you press out the bearing, and press in the new one. Not impossible, but not recommended for someone who is challenged by spark plugs.

register on www.hmaservice.com, select your car model
(99 is elantra RD) and go to the shop section.

in there you will find all you need, disassembly and reassembly instructions step by step with illustrations.

good luck there...

Are you sure it's the hub bearing that's bad, and not the axle bearing? CV joints on the axles go bad quite often. They make a racket when you go around turns.

I would recommend you take the knuckle to a local auto shop and have them remove and press the bearing. You can damage the housing that the bearing sits in. Removing the knuckle from the axle is pretty easy to do. Just take your time. Elantra (RD)
