Default are front wheel bearing on Impreza'a press in bearings?

like the title says...do they need to be pressed in and out? I can't remember. I have a 94 Impreza L AWD 5 spd, incase it makes a difference.
thanks, Micah

Get yourself new inner and outer oil seals. And some good high temp grease to pack the bearing with. And a new axle nut.

Doing the job yourself?

You know, I'm curious about this. I had the front bearings on my Legacy done because they were old and rumbling in turns. It was god-awefully expensive. If I were to go buy one of those $30 hand presses that do like 2T or one of those cheapie ones consisting of a bottle jack welded to a spring loaded bar on a frame, could I do this myself? I've changed plenty of wheel bearings before, but I've never done pressed in ones because I lack that hydraulic press I thought I needed. I'm not even really sure what needs to happen. How do you get them out? Can you press them out, or do they get pulled? I'm thinking my rear bearings should get done and I plan to rebuild my transmission and replace my diff in a few months. That would be a good time to do it. I'm just curious to see if I can save myself several hundred dollars.

Lots and lots of questions!

you can actually do them by hand, using the old race and a hammer. being careful and tapping evenly. The press would make it easier though.
