Re: Front Bearring Replacement. Press: Y or N
I would definitely recommend using an hydraulic press not only for removal but also for replacement. The risk of damaging the new bearing and reluctor ring (if the magnetic type) isn't worth risk.
Last one I had removed it took 8 tons of pressure before it would budge.
