    One of my front wheel bearings is on the way out, the garage I phoned said that they change the whole unit and not just the bearing so no need to press any thing in which made me think, if there isn't any bearings to press in I could change the bearing my self. Is the garage right? Do you buy the whole hub and just change that?

    Its a bolt of/on job, nothing to press in in the 8P, the previous 8L was pressed in.
