Default Front wheel bearing help? 13 NA

Help fellow Impreza owners!
Doing front wheel bearing and can't get it to break free and out of the spindle.
Do I need to take off the spindle and tap it out from the back side or get it pressed put and back in?
Didn't think it was that much of a press fit.

I beat the **** out of it from all directions. Don't know if it's just rusty and stuck. I sprayed with Pb blaster to sit over night.

That sucks because I have no way to get one tomorrow.
I may take off the whole spindle and tap it out from the back and use heat to loosen it.
If not there is a repair shop a 1/4 mile down the street that I can walk to and see if they can press it out and press the new one in.

I once took out the whole axle (took out the differential end) attached to the stuck spline/bearing and knuckle and everything and put it in a press to get it out of the hub

I got it.
The axle was not stuck in the bearing. The bearing was all corroded in the spindle.
Took out the spindle completely and banged it out from the back.
Then wire brushed the bore and installed the new one.
All set
