    Looking at my service manual there seems to be a number of special tools
    required to do a front wheel bearing. But it also looks like one might be
    able to get around most of them. Anybody ever done one and have advice? Or
    would I just be better off bringing the car in and having it done? (At this
    stage of my life I know its important to pick your battles).

    The front hub bearing must be pressed out of (and back into) the knuckle.
    Without a hydraulic press, it ain't happening.

    But if you're the original owner of the vehicle (or within 5 years and
    60k), there's good news. The warranty on this component is 10 years/100k
    miles for the original owner. If you're within the warranty period, let
    the dealer fight your battle for you.
