First take the wheel off.

Then unbolt the lower bolt joint beat the steering knuckle with a hammer near the lower ball joint to get it off. undo the bolt for the outer tie rod. Undo the 2 bolts that hold the strut to the steering knuckle. un do the 2 bolts that hold the brake caliper on. get a big old socket usually 30-32mm for the big center axle nut. then pull the steering knuckle off as you tap the axle in . Now bring the steering knuckle with the new bearing to the nearest auto shop and have them press the bearing out and press the new one in. Then bring it back to your place and bolt it back together. you are looking at 5 nuts and 2 bolts to do the whole job. Not counting the 5 lug nuts that hold the wheel. the shop should probably charge any where from $15-30 to press it

Although, it would help if you would include the year, make, model, engine size, etc. for this particular question as snuckers99 gave you a generic procedure for most (not all) front wheel drive small cars.

Sorry I'm not familiar with that make and model. Are you sure you have that correct?

I know of a Honda Passport and a Kia Optima but neither existed in 1991.
