Hello, the bearing is pressed into the spindle. The job does require various tools. If a shop does not have all the tools, we use a press and different press adapters to do the job. We usually have to remove the spindle to do the job. There just is not any user friendly way to do it with basic hand tools.You could? remove spindle and take to a shop to swap out bearings, we do this for customers periodically. below is information about the job
