Long story short, I need to replace my hub.


Does anyone have any How-To's or guides? 


I've heard I need to press the new hub into the wheel bearing. What tool is this? Will prob rent it from an auto parts store.


Thank you,

Machine shop. Usually a big hydraulic press is needed. A neighbor of mine got around this once by swapping the whole steering knuckle (hub assembly) with a new one that had the bearing already installed.

I started hearing a droning noise above 75 km/h that got progressively louder with the speed. At 178,000 km (approx 108,235 miles) I took it into the shop - they determined my rear wheel bearings needed replacing - that was almost USD 700 for two rear hubs (new, with the new bearings already pressed in). The good part? My front and rear brakes still had 8mm of tread left. Wow. Amazing.  But I have to admit - it's the first car I've owned in decades (and I mean since the 1980's) that needed new hubs/bearings.  I'm not sure I'm impressed, though the car itself has been fantastically reliable.
