I dont know if there is a video, I am sure with some searching on youtube you could find one. I have however had the front rotating assembly apart on my 97 a couple times. It is not too hard. It is all pretty straight forward when you get to it, it isnt exactly fun though. The most difficult part is getting the snap ring out from within the hub after you remove the outer locking hubs. I recommend you buy a service manual and it will assist you greaty. While you are at it pick up a set of automotive picks, it will make removing that snap ring I speak of much easier. There is a special tool you can rent for removal, installation and setting the torque preload on the bearings of the spin on nut thing inside the hub. I generally just use a flat punch and hammer to spin it out, then install it the same way and set the preload by feel. It is not perfect, but its how my mechanic buddy showed me when I did it the first time. So far so good, over 30k on the new bearings with no trouble.
