Question about Citroen Xsara
There is a humming noise from the front wheels which i know will be the front wheel bearings. I have been told that the bearings have to be pressed in and out. new sdk bearings cost 42.00. I want to attack this myself but not done this before, however, I have just been quoted 40 for a new hub with an sdk bearing already pressed in (which is cheaper than just the bearing). How easy is this job to do if i just replace the hub instead? do i need any special tools?
Oversized socket big hammer and knock out the old bearing replacing new bearing it will tap back in with the socket you use to remove ,,,be care full not to hit the abs ring

yes you need a press to remove the bearing and hub , you can use the same hub as long as where the hub goes into the bearing is not scored in any way . the knuckle would have to be taken off and sent to a machine shop if you done have a press. and you should also use caution when putting the nut back on thr axle.

It isn't a particularly hard job but there are a few techniques that you need to know.
I wouldn't recommend you do it yourself but I would recommend you do it under supervision of someone who knows their stuff.
Retensioning the bearings correctly is extremely important.

not press fitted, standard tapered bearings, if 4X4 it is a little more involved, just dont misplace any of the smaller parts and you will be fine.

Testimonial: "thanks for the speedy reply and also for the right advice."
hey codycarroll, if it makes you feel better; I did the same thing, my audi fell off the jack and the brake rotor(with the weight of the car on it) landed on my foot and then rested there....not fun for the next 2 minutes of extreme panic and pain!
