Hello all. Can somebody give me the complete lowdown on changing the front wheel bearings and whats involved? I have access to a hydraulic press and full toolshop, but I've been reading a lot of horror stories about special tools, incorrect preloads, high failure rates etc etc. Any and all advice much appreciated. Thanks. G.P.

Kia dealership fixed this for free about 2 years ago on my 2007 Rio5. You're out of your warranty now though I bet.

I can only access the Kia tech data using Internet Explorer. Other web browsers didn't work. As far as replacing the front wheel bearings, I've never done that job.
