Default Front bearings on a 2003 P.T. Cruiser

Hello,
I have a Chilton 2001-03 Repair Manual and they do not show anything on front bearings. What I need to know is when do you replace them? And do you know of a repair book that shows how to work on them too.
Thank you,
Leroy

Driving slow, make a turn to the left, then right, do you hear any kind of grinding noise? Another way is to jack each front wheel up (one at a time) and grab the wheel top and bottom and try to shake it, then grab on both side and do the same. There shouldn't be any play in the wheel.

Here's how to change the bearing.
