Front Wheel Bearing Servicing

How to repack the bearings and put new seals?  I have the hub assemblies off.  Looks like a tricky pressing job.  Tnks.

Yep; a press helps.  One can do it with a big brass punch and big hammer; but a press is the way to go - doesn't have to be a big one.   Also make sure you don't lose the spacer that goes between the CV joint and the hub assembly.  Sometimes they stay on the joint, sometimes the hub; sometimes fall under the car when you're not looking!  Since you have to disassemble them anyway, may as well replace the bearings.
