not a hotrod question, changing a wheel bearing

Hi guys

My daily driver has a bad front wheel bearing (2000 Neon) I would like to change it myself if its possible but i think the wheel bearings are pressed into the hub on these cars, is there any way I would be able to change this without a press? I'm guessing I'll have to take the hub to a shop to get it changed but I thought I would ask you guys first.

Thanks in advance for your help,

Chris

I think you will need to take the hub and the new bearing to a shop with a press
