Front Wheel Bearings

Tried a quick search but couldn't find what I needed. Are these changeable with ordinary tools (like rear bearings are), or do they require to be 'pressed' in?

Re: Front Wheel Bearings

Yuppy, sounds all good to go then . Just take the front hub off!

Might as well replace the front arm too :P, they are cheap enough.
