How to Replace Honda Fit Front Wheel Bearing at Home

I was hearing a lot of noise while driving my 2007 Honda Fit Sport, especially around 55-60 MPH. The sound could best be described as a WOM WOM WOM WOM that got louder as vehicle speed increased. This how-to DIY video shows the parts needed to remove and install the front wheel bearing, as well as all of the parts and tools needed to do this job at home in my garage. Oh, I live in northern Ohio, so everything was extremely rusty, making this job much more difficult than it normally would have been!
