Hi everyone, I recently got myself a 2000 Sirion GTVi and turns out it needs a right front wheel bearing replacement. Is this a complicated job which I can’t do it myself with basic hand tools? About how much would a mechanic charges for this job if I go to the shop?
Thanks in advance for any advice
If you have a hydraulic press then yes you can do it by yourself. But if you would you wouldn’t have asked the question.
Your basic tools will at least let you pull the hub out. Like the DutchGuy said you will find it an easy job with a small press (I put my new bearings packed already with grease in a bag in the freezer prior to pressing in as they go more easily).
Thanks for the comments. I understand there’s nearly no way to do the job without a hydraulic press. Today I’ve been quoted AU$380 to do the job by a local mechanic, thank you again for your kind advice!
