Default Replace rear axle bearing on Tracker

I'm getting a loud clicking noise from the left rear on my Tracker and do believe it's a wheel bearing. How much of a job is it to replace one. I imagine I'll have to have the old pressed off and the new on. Any thoughts on this job? It's a 1991 and runs great.

How much of that video actually pertains to a '91? Sure looks a lot different than mine.Do all their axels pull out like a ford?
Me being "frugal",I wouldn't have changed the bearings{they had no play}but that's just me

Don't know but I did it on my 95 and it was exactly like the video and I cheated some. The guy cut it with a torch first then hit it. Then pressed the new ones on. My dad packed it with wheel bearing grease and I am not so sure about it because now I hear a noise from that side but then again I thought it was the brakes because it got coated in gear oil but I degreased the hell out of them with carb cleaner and brake cleaner and it does not make a different sound when I brake. I think its the grease once it got hot ah! But other than that its straight forward and simple and only takes a grinder, press, chain (if no puller).
