Front wheel bearing change on 318is '98'

Firstly hello to all on the site i have only just joined and i thought it would be a good idea to pick a few brains.

I have to change a front wheel bearing next week, i have done this on other cars for mates etc but i've never changed them on one of my cars so is it staright forward op or do i require an extractor tool or odd/depth socket size?

Cheers

As far as I know the front ones come with the hub as they are built in.

I believe you will need to order a new hub and that all the bearings should be included and just change it as one whole assembly. You might want to get a puller to get the old one out as it makes life a lot easier, but, I have seen people able to pull them out by hand.
