Need help . . . Xi Front Wheel bearings

Does anyone have a DIY or first hand experience in changing the front wheel bearings on an xi?

The Chilton manual states that you need three special BMW tools, which of course i don't have:

-bearing buller
-bearing installation tool
-inner race bearing puller

I read somewhere on here that they simply "tap out", but I am skeptical now. I don't want to attampt the job, only to find out i don;t have the right tools.
