Unless you have this nifty little tool set called a Hub-Shark, the knuckle has to come off and the press warmed up. Hub and bearing are seperate parts on that car, they don't come as an assembly. I always recommend replacing the hub with the bearing on those, especially if you've been driving on a bad bearing for any length of time. My advice would be to remove the knuckle (not a difficult job), and take it to a machine shop to have the required pressing done.
