Icon2 How to remove knuckle and replace wheel bearing on a 94 Civic HB DX?

Idk if there is a thread already about this, i looked but couldn't seem to find one, also looked on YouTube and nothing. So if there's already one please if you can link me to it and if a MOD can close this (if there is a thread already)

Anyways first off does anyone know where i can watch a video on how to replace a front wheel bearing on a 94 EG DX.

If not can anyone help me out on replacing it, like a step by step.

Thanks in advanced!

Then call that guy and ask him how he did it????
You asked how to change them out and here you go. If you're looking for a way using exact tools that you prefer AND a step-by-step guide WITH pictures, you might be waiting a long time.

If you don't have a press or the tool used at the link, then buy a replacement bearing, remove the knuckle yourself, and then call around to local shops to find the lowest price for pressing the old bearing out and pressing the new bearing into the knuckle.

Ya i have the part i need already, so can i use a flat head and a hammer to pop it off? I called this shop to see how much they would charge me to put it in and they said about $50-$70 does that sound about right?

If you want to know if the price "sounds about right" you can pick up the phone a couple more times and call around to a few more shops and do what is called a "price comparison".

Sounds a bit high, especially $70. Call other shops to compare prices and try to pin down a more specific price from the $50-70 shop. Not sure why they they gave a price range.

Here's what you need to know about knuckle removal and wheel bearing replacement:
