hi gang,
any advice as to how easy to change front wheel bearings on a 2000 1.6 focus ,i have been told that as they are 'pressed in' it could be a garage only option, or it could only need the hub nut to be re-tightend
thanks for any help

if you can do a lot of the work yourself and save a whole bunch of labour take the hub off and take it with the new bearing to a local indepedent and they should press it in and out for the price of a pack of cigs .

If you had your own hydraulic press them it's a five minute job.
Ford would quote at least two hours labour and insist on a diagnostic :P
