Default wheel bearing question

I need to replace one of my rear wheel bearings. I want to do it myself to save money on labor and extra part costs.

Has anyone ever done one before (level of difficulty)?

I know I have to bring it to an auto machine shop to have the bearing pressed off and then on.

Do the seals just come off and go right back on?

Any tips that could help would be greatly appricated.

ScoobyMods news group has the Subaru NEW recomendations for installing the new type roller bearing in the rear axel housing. You need someone who is very familiar with how to press-in a bearing and the correct drivers. Ed Hayes
