To change that, using a hydraulic press is highly recommended. if you are DIY experienced, this trick works as well:

take a pice of a stable metal pipe, 10-20 cm long. and in diameter just a tick smaller than gross bearing size. take a very heavy tool and use the pipe to beat out the old bearing. dont be shy, needs a lot of power.

do not use this method to insert the new bearing. use a pice of wood instead (must sit stable on the outer bearing ring!!), lubircate a bit and beat carfully and very straigt in fractions of a mm. this is the difficult part and here the bearing may brake if you are too rough.

Not really recommend, but working when used with brain and care.

Driver side wheel makes noise, it gets more rapid as I go faster


There are a few reasons why a wheel will make noise when it's rotating. The most serious would be a bad wheel bearing. I would have the front wheel bearings checked, and if the driver's side needs replacement, I recommend that you have the passenger side replaced as well.
Other less serious causes for a noise at the wheel can be a small stone stuck inside a hub cap or a stone lodged in the tire tread.

I Think I have a front wheel bearing problem


Check wheel bering for play if there is no play , it doesn't mean that bearing is NOT bad its can still be dry and would be making that grinding sound you described Also check axle and see if boot is broken. That may be your problem also make sure that rotors are not gouged/scraped up and pads are good.Contact if you need more help and thanks for using FIX YA

Grinding noise in front end


Hi
Had the exact same problem, on a used 2003 Protege ES with 82,000 miles that I purchased.
Started with the loud "road noise" I thought well maybe thats just the sound that it makes.
And then noticed that it varies when turning.
This will continue to get worse and then your abs light will come on when it gets bad enough to trigger the sensor..
It turned out to be a bad wheel bearing.
Take it to a shop and have an experienced mechanic check it out. Its repairable.
