got some grumbing from rear wheels on mk2 2007 focus. anyone changed the bearings on these that can help? i've seen bearings for sale but also hub kits?? is it easier to go for hub kits? how easy is it to do, will i need to use a press at all to get these changed? any help would be apprecitaed? maybe i can then post a small guide to doing ourselves?
thanks in advance

The bearings are press fit.
You may be able to knock them out with a socket and a bfh but they will need to be pressed In properly to make sure they're straight.

the bearings on ebay are included fitted in the hubs.. would these still need pressing in and out? thought i might just be able to swap the hubs?

That would save having to hunt for a press for sure.
Worth going for I'd say.
