||I did the rear bearings on my jetta not too long ago
||. The hard part for me was getting the
||new races back in. The 30mm socket I have for the front axel nut, fit
||perfectly in the outer hole so I used that to apply even pressure to get it
||back in. On the other side, I very carefully tried, and retried to get it
||started into the hole (I think I used a block of wood and hammered it, but I
||remmber it gave me some trouble)
Use the old races to drive the new ones in, along with a block of wood.
No need for a press. I have a press, but it's quicker to use a hammer.
