If you want to do it yourself, then you can remove the hub carrier, and take it to your friendly local garage who have a press. Get them to press out the old bearing and press in a new one. You do all the rest. That's about 20 minutes work for the garage, so not expensive. It's what I used to do before I bought a 15 tonne press. -- Grunff
