This is a pretty common repair on all cars since the late 90's. It involves replacing the the entire hub assembly with a new one, or removing the hub and pressing out the old bearing and pressing in a new one with a 10 ton press. Some people access a hub puller/ bearing grappler and do the bearing change with the hub on the car. They don't remove it.

It isn't a repair for a first time DIYer, but a backyard mechanic who has been in the backyard a while certainly could. To arm yourself with an idea of what your up against, watch some YouTube videos on "hub replacement/fix" on several different cars of the early 2000's. The entire hub is available from many auto suppliers, and bearing suppliers can get you just the bearings, if you go that route.

Any good independent mechanic can do the job for you as well. Good Luck!
