You lift the front end and set it on something solid so it can't fall. Pull the rubber cap off the axle, remove the e-clip holding the wheel and pull it off.

Be careful to catch the 2 washers on the outside and 1 on the inside of the wheel.

The bearing is a nylon t-bushing that pushes inside the wheel. The part number for the bushing is 9040H, and the cost is around $8.00. There are 2 on each front wheel.
