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.

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

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.
