I heard you had to replace the whole wheel hub if the wheel bering breaks

My car has 233000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

If wheel bearing is in need of replacement on this vehicle then you will need to replace the entire hub assembly with it since it comes as an assembly incorporated with the speed sensor.
