I assume at least one person here has done a wheel bearing on these cars in their garage. Has anyone tried the method you see on youtube where they do it without a press? I read a thread earlier where someone stated the wheel hub normally lasts the life of the car. What is the consensus on that opinion? Is it normal for it just to be the bearing, seals and races that need replacing? This is my only car and parts sourcing seems to be a bit of an issue so if i start the job on a Sunday and find out I need a new hub or knuckle I'm in big trouble. Is a 6 ton press from HF capable of handling this job? I dont know that press is the word i actually want, its been a long day so im a little brain dead. Any hot tips on this repair from people that have done it before? Thanks!
