Orlando area ... Front wheel bearing, need a shop that will just do the press work

So, I am pretty sure my front passenger wheel bearing is on it's last breath. I don't have access to a hydraulic press right off the top of my head ... anyone know of any shops in the Orlando area that would do just the pressing out and in of a new bearing? Would be doing the work in a friend's backyard around Hoffner / Semoran, so something in that area would be best, but as long as the price is right, I'll consider Orlando in general.

I cant think of any shops of hand. But if you have the parts removed from the car and just need the old barrings pushed out and new ones in. Call good year up. They should charge to much.

Well, they're not removed yet. Still gotta get to work and what not. My next day off is Thursday and hopefully then I will have the time to do it.

I swear, if I ever own a house, I will have a press, even if it's just something from Harbor Freight. :-p

If you check the Harbor Freight website you will find a press isn't too expensive. If you have room to store it then it might not be a bad idea to buy one.

I have not yet, but everything I've seen on here indicates that a press is required to get the bearings out. I'll have to take a gander at YouTube later I suppose.

I live in an apartment currently. Space is at a premium, so not really an option right now.
