Alfa Romeo 147

Im a mechanic by trade. Mine took about an hour per side, without the use of a press. This is the only awkward bit to be honest. I just put the bearing in the freezer overnight and it shrunk enough to pull it in with a lenght of threaded bar and some sockets.

If your not mechanicly mindd, then send it to a garage. It shouldnt take them more than an hour with the facilities they have.

So, no not easy, but doable if you have some knowledge and patience.

Various Alfa's

on the front it is virtualy impossible to get the abs sensor out the hub without destroying it so you will probably need one of those aswell.

Rear bearing=easy.
Front bearing=not so easy. Wouldn't recommend for DIY to be honest, and you're likely to require the use of a decent press. ABS sensor also easily damaged.
