Default Front wheel bearings

I am seeking some insight as to the difficulty of replacing my front
wheel bearings on my 97 Integra.
Is this a procedure that should be left to a qualified mechanic ?

Has anyone swapped out their bearings, would like to know
how difficult it was ?

Thanks,

Chris.

20-ton press needed.

You can remove the front spindles and bring that to a shop, though. For
that you need to break both upper and lower balljoints, and knock the axle
out of the hub.

You don't have a 20-ton press, so it's a moot point.

Thanks for the reply Tegger, that's pretty much what I was expecting.
