Well as well as an oil change this weekend i'll also be attempting to change the front bearings on my DCI without a machine press.

A few years back I managed it with my Megane Coupe and found the most important thing to remember when you try to bash the old bearing out is to remove the circlip.... I spent a good hour trying to beat my hub to a pulp before realising I hadn't removed it :loser: once I realised I managed to pop the bearing out with a few minutes of excessive force and the top part of my axle stand as the tubing just happened to fit through the hub perfectly. Fingers crossed i'll manage the Clio's bearings with less trauma but i'll let everyone know on Monday.
