Wheel bearing/hub

For the past month or so I've been hearing a hum/growl coming from the front drivers side wheel and the pitch of the noise changes when I turn. I rotated my
tires today and couldn't feel any play. I did some research and it appears that the wheel bearing is bad. I'm thinking of buying a new hub assembly from a local
auto parts store, question is will I be able to remove the hub assembly myself? Are there special tools involved? I did the hubs on my girlfriends intrepid by
following this video Are Elantras similar? If not can someone point me to a tutorial on how to do it? Thanks.

I found a shop that will do the bearings for a reasonable price so I will just bring them the knuckle. I need help diagnosing which side. When I am driving straight, the whirring/howling noise is loud, when I turn RIGHT it goes away, when I turn LEFT it stays constant. From what I understand that means the bearing the the RIGHT side is the one going bad?
