We used a heavy cylinder specifically designed to knock out bearings to do my right front wheel bearing. It was a time consuming process but i certainly doable. The tube was essentially a pipe that was the correct size to fit nicely inside the wheel hub and using a sledge hammer knocked the bearing out. To install we used similar tool but with a ground edge to catch and hold the bearing. Should be able to get fro local auto parts rental shop..... Takes time and patience. A press would be easier, but I had none available ......
