Any decent workshop can take these bearings in at out easily - done it loads of times - it takes a little patience and the right setting in the press to get it right - unless someone before you has butchered it up with a big hammer. In all honesty I wouldn't let my dog drive the vehicle without replacing the hub carrier first.
when I had to do bearings I got a 2nd hand hub from a scrappy and had a friendly local garage fit a new bearing using a press, cost a pint (well 10 inc bearing), now I have the old hubs in case I need to do it again.

Ug, if you can take some photos of the ABS ring and assembly etc. I will add them to the Clio FAQ as I put a "how to" up in there re Mk1 wheel bearings and I can edit them in.
