    Default 205 Front wheel bearing

    I need a bearing change on the left hand front but I haven't changed one yet.

    Do I need a press or can the bearing just be wound in? Anything else I should look out for?

    Ok, Picked up my front wheel bearings today but I'm still unsure if I need a press to get them out / in.

    Surely someone has changed a wheel bearing and can help??

    Shame I don't have a spare hub to pull apart to and experiment with.

    Can't see how you'd do it without a press, if it's anything like 306 size. Feel sorry for the poms; theirs get corroded in as well.

    I've only done it with a press, doesn't mean it can't be done without one.

    Pugmonkey, in theory you can do them with a big bolt through and wind in, but when did wife's car, the bearing turned out to be a pig of a bastard. Even the 10 ton press needed some effort to push it out. Admittedly, that was 405Mi16. No rust problems, just a really tight fit.

    To take the hubs out I use two bolts through opposite stud holes, pushing against the carrier (you might need some flat thick plate behind the hub).

    What bearings did you get? Part number and manufacturer, please.

    Yes, you will need a press to remove the bearing. It's a fiddly job as it's difficult to support under the carrier correctly. Do not be tempted to use the brake mounting points as a support place as they will be bend. I took some time to make some tooling.

    Did you make a split block pair that locates on the periphery of the outboard "rim" the bearing seats in?
