Wheel bearing replacement in a 2003 Mazda Protege 5. Press in style bearings done without using a shop press. Specific for Mazda Protege, but many of the techniques will apply to vehicles with pres-in-style wheel bearings. It’s a good idea to try to use the bearing-press-kit the way it was intended. If the bearing doesn’t budge, BE CAREFUL using a breaker bar. The bolt supplied with the press-kit is not very strong…it with probably shear off the head. Try to give the bearin a few hits with a sledge hammer as seen in the vid..it will get the bearing moving. Then you can use the press-kit, and it should finish pressing out the bearing. Pressing in the bearing with the kit should be no problem.
