I changed a front wheel bearing with nothing more than a hammer and soft punches once the hub was off, I used the old outer casing to tap in the new bearing after giving all contact surfaces a good clean with emery cloth, a certain degree of luck and patience is also required. I also replaced a complete hub, complete with bearing / circlip and flange already fitted, ordered over the fone from Citroen for £200, it arrived in the post and took 20 mins to fit, thats a good deal when you consider its usually £120 to have a bearing only fitted in a garage.
Hi there, and thanks for the replies.
Seems like i don't have the right tools, to bad, cus i love to fix what i can fix. it is also a money saver to do it myself
But i ordered a appointment on a carShop. They just take the whole car
239 British pounds including parts, work. Not to shabby (place sweden, 2600 SWEDISH KRONER)
My Car INFO:

Having the tools is half the battle....
Tip .. If you find the outer race is left behind in the casting just run a bead of weld around the inner face of the bearing race to shrink it and it will then tap out.
Another tip - don't burn through the race with the weld so that the weld reaches the hub whatever you do or it will never come out ( unless you have even more tooling - it will wash out with care using an oxy acetylene cutting torch ).
Fitting the bearing - you can of course heat up the casting to expand it which makes bearing entry a lot easier but you must work quickly and have all the tools to hand - have a dry run first to make sure. 150* C will be fine.
