Hydraulic press
« on: June 17, 2013, 11:25:00 PM »

Does anybody have a hydraulic press that I can use to remove and install a wheel bearing into my daily driver? Having a tough time dropping it off at a machine shop with my work schedule and stuff. Also some guidance if anyone's done one before would help I've never dealt with pressing them in and out

What kind of car are you dealing with?  I haven't ever needed a press for wheel bearings, even if they were tight I've been able to tap them out using a large socket, and I do mean tap not beat.

I don't have a press though or you'd be more than welcome to use it.

It's an awd subaru legacy. I was just gonna drop it off at a shop since I don't have the time to have it down but all the shops I went to were shocked when they threw it into all data and found out it was almost 4 hours of labor. The knuckles off the car now and the bearing is ready to be pushed out along with the hub. I'm not sure if I can tap it out or not I honestly have not tried
