In Reply to: Wheel Bearing Replacement? posted by GMAN on December 08, 2001 at 00:40:34:
Unless you are a hard core DIYer, I don't recommend this job. I purchased a special service tool from SKYWAY tools it was about $300, if I remember correctly.
Pulling the bearing out is pretty easy with the tool, but pressing it back is requires some care.
Removing the half shaft is a bit of a bear because the car has to be lifted up and the bolts must be removed. It is possible if you have the correct tools, but I found out after the fact there is a special tool available that has an extra long reach to remove the half shaft bolts from outside the car versus underneath.
Good luck should you attempt this
