Why do you need to change the bearing? Noisy?

I would check out a book from the Lib. This job isn't too bad if you have the tools and a place to work.

You need to replace the hub & bearing assy. Remove large nut from hub and replace with new unit below.

TIMKEN WHEEL BEARING/HUB ASSEMBLY-FRONT for a 1993 BUICK LESABRE Part No. 513087 (Auto Zone)
Cost about $140.00

Bearings whine when they start to go bad. The bearing is part of the hub assembly.

You will need a 36MM socket to break the axle nut.
The brake caliper needs to come off
The rotor needs to come off
You will need a 55 Torx bit to remove 3 screws retaining the bearing assembly and a hammer to pound the bearing assembly out. Not a big job.

Any idea on the torque for the three torx bolts? I'm doing a set on my 93 today.
Thanks, Gary

Gary, in the future start a new thread, this is over a year old, 45-50 is about right.

I use a press to remove and install front wheel bearings. What do you you use to hammer them in and out. How do you keep from damaging the new bearing.
Do you put a piece of steel plate over the bearing.
