the wheel bearing is not pressed in, and you do have to take off the whole knuckle. and you do have to take off the ball joint and tie rod end, but if you're a novice mechanic and you get up early on a weekend or whatever then you should be able to get it done before dark, taking somewhat frequent breaks in between. I am, what i would call, a shade tree mechanic, I've been doing my own mechanic work for quite some time, but with no actual training, and i changed both my front wheel bearings in under 4 hours. It's a fairly simple process, but just to for warn you, you may bust the seal on your tie rod end and need another one, and the oil seal that goes on after the inner wheel bearing will likely break too. so just two simple and for the most part cheap parts that you may also need. Good luck

My metro just started to make a noise.I pulled the driver-side rear wheel and spun.I could hear the noise.I pulled cap off and bearings look okbut i guess they're not.Are they pressed in or bolted?
