They said that the bearings were pressed in so tight that there was no way they could have removed it with the tool that does it on the car. They said the inner bearing was bone dry (no grease). Anyway, they then replaced both bearings and the crush washer that goes in between. The assembly then was torqued to spec. I think it was over 200 ft. lbs.
I do quite a bit of my own wrenching but am glad I don't think I could have done this.
+1 I'd do the same thing if I didn't have a press...
