When I have done bearings I use a small grinder to cut the race on the bearing carrier instead of using a press. Works like removing the race on the hub. One other thing i've found out. There is very lettle grease inside one of those new bearings. The last one I did I took the new bearing apart, it takes only a screw driver and a small hammer. One the bearings & seals are out I clean up the insalled grease and repack them with a high quality wheel bearing grease. I also put almost twice as much grease in there as to how them came from the factory. If any leaks out I wouldn't sweat it.
