No you don't need a press, you can tap then in with a soft drift.

SOURCE: 1995 Toyota Celica Front Wheel Hub

The same thing happened to my 95 Celica, the first mechanic or suspension shop replaced the front wheel bearings and about a month later the noise was back. I took it to another shop and they said that the bearing were bad because the base of the spindle assemble,where the bearing sits, was wallowed out. They replaced it and the bearings and all is good. I would have them check the spindle assembly.

SOURCE: what tools do i need to replace front wheel bearing hub assembly

Floor jack- jack car up and put a jack stand under it. A tire lug to remove tire. A 36 mm socket to unbolt axle shaft sticking through bearing hub. Next a Brass hammer with a block of wood. Next center wood on axle shaft sticking through bearing hub and hit with a 4lb brass or steel hammer with a wood block on shaft. Next you need a 10mm or 12mm socket on back side of bearing hub should have 3 bolts holding it unbolt. Last use a pry bar and gradually pry bearing out and no there not pressed in like a lot of people think.
(Socket sizes maybe different)
If you take it somewhere it would cost about $800 and up.

SOURCE: how do u remove front wheel bearing

Take off the wheel, then the brake caliper, noow you have the roter. in the center is a cap, the center cap, this comes off by pruing it off with a screwdriver. Inside that a retaning pin, take that out, then a nut cover, and nut with grooves in it from where you took out the pin. It is good to mark about where it was so when you put it together, you will not overtighten it.

Take that nut off, then you should be able to take off the whole assembly, bearings and all. If this is a sealed unit, you have to but a roter that will have the guts already inside it. make sure you clean off all of the old grease, you are going to replace critical parts, so you need new grease for them. Also make sure your spildle is not grooved, if so haw bad, you might replace it to if all gualled up.

on a sealed unit you just reverse the steps from taking it off.

if not you have to knock out the old races in the caliper, the one side by a wide screwdriver and hammer, there are pullers, but from the way it sounds, it is in there tight. Just be carefull not to kill the sides and rotate it around when doing this. once it is out, do the other side, find a socket that size, one thak will fit in the race almost to the edges and beat it out. now make sure the caliper is in a flat surface, and use a blanket or something toi avoid knicking the thing.

once both are out, just reverse the process, grease the inside just a bit and when you put the race in use a socket that is the size of the race, and beat it in evenly.grease your bearings, make sure you do one side at a time, and putting them back on the spindle is a cake walk compared to what you just have done.

hope this helps

How to change a front wheel bearing on a 2007 toyota tacoma 2 wheel drive pickup truck


The bearing & hub is a whole assembly for this model, start by removing the brake calipers, the removing the rotors" a couple taps with the hammer should loosen it" , after removing the rotors the hub & bearing assembly is held on by 4 #17 bolts, after you get the hud and bearing assembly off you will need a tool called a bearing split plate ,to split the hub and bearing off each other. Now you should have the new bearing assembly ,inner wheel seal, and hub set together" this is when you need a press". Press the hub onto the new bearing assembly.And thats it! Its ready to go back on the way you took it off.

How do i remove the front wheel bearing


I have just finished replacing the RH front wheel bearing on my 2006 F150 Super cab. Time it took was 1-1/2 hours. You will need a freezer to place the new bearing in while you remove the tire and hub.
The hub has a snap ring in the rear which you will need to remove.
Next you will need a HYD press to press out the bad bearing. You may need to find a friend to do this that has access to a press capable of at least 30TON.
It is a must to press out the bearing as square as possible to assure no damage to the hub.
Important step: Clean very well the hub including the snap ring grove clean clean.
Now that the new bearing has been in the freezer for about an hour and fifteen minutes and all the parts are clean you can press in the new bearing, make sure everything is pressing in square (it will require lots of tonnage and possible damage to the bearing or hub can happen.
Ok now that the bearing is pressed in install the clean snap ring and you are done.
Congratulations you just saved $200.00 on an entire assembly from Ford.
Get it in your mind. If it was installed it can be replaced. Don't let anyone tell you that it is not a serviceable part. Think about it if Ford installed it, it can come out and be replaced.
