Default Front Wheel bearing Replacement?

Does anyone know a good diagram or how hard it is to replace the front wheel bearings (inner, outer, seal) on a 2000 Sportage 4wd?
I've looked at Kiatechinfo but it seems like it may require special tools?

Any help is advised, I have the parts but haven't tried to tackle it yet in case i need special tools.

No special tools. Go to kiateck- year & model -shop -repair procedures - free wheeling hub assembly. All you need is good pair snap ring pliers, hammer, drift pin (punch) grease packer. This is not a five minute job but not bad.

I just redid the bearings on my 2001 Sportage last weekend. Took an hour and cost $20.00 a side for parts.
