Ummmmm, let's see if I remeber. Take of the wheel. With a large blade tip screwdriver, pry off the center hub. Remove the brace caliper bu releasing the hex hex nut and bolt, and using a stiff wire or string, secure it away from the wheen housing (so that the brake hose diesn't support the full weight). In the center section of the wheel hub is a nut that basically holds it to the spline - unscrew that with a pair of opened pliers, and the whole brake disk assembly pulls out. You'll see the bearings, with the races still pressed to the hub.
Take a look at the online resources portion of this forum - there should be an article on wheel bearing jobs. If not, let me know and I'll post one.
Reassembly is the reverse ...
