T4 Post Icon Wheel bearings

Hello

I had an advisory for a noisy rear wheel bearing at my last MoT.

As it's due again next week ( ) I was going to change them. Do they have to be pressed out of the hub with a flypress, or should I be able to get away with a hammer/drift or a vice?

Cheers, Andy

Unless you want to ruin your new bearing press is the way
