Default Replacing the rear wheel hub assembly

can anybody point me to a diagram / a step by step guide of some sort and or video please??? I currently can not afford a mechanic so i will be doing this job myself. I am a bit experienced w/minor mechanic but i am no pro. I am confident i can change this part. Any bit of help is greatly appreciated .

What year ?

1999 - 2005 :

4 bolts hold hub assembly to knuckle.. remove the wheel, capiler assembly, rotor. and smack the back side of bearing with hammer, if not seized due to rust, it should pop out.

Re-assemble in reverse order.

Remove the (2) bolts that hold the mounting bracket to the spindle (bracket contains the inner-outer pad, and caliper is bolted to it via the caliper mounting pins).. you will need a 14mm socket, a little bit of extension to get through the suspension, remove the (2) bolts, lift caliper/mounting bracket off rotor.

Default Sbr711 or anyone else

Is this process the same for a 2008 Santa Fe awd. My wife's rr bearing is going out and I'm planning on replacing the hub. I've done mechanical work before and not shy about it, just want to know if the are any major differences in the year and the fact it's awd. I'm assuming there's going to be a axel not to take off. Any help is greatly appreciate. Thanks.
