Scotty, I’m changing the wheel bearing in my 2008 Kia Optima in the front. I already pressed out the old bearing, but can not get the new one to go in straight. It starts out strait and then goes crooked and then won’t go any further. I’ve tried 2 bearings, I’ve used my impact, done it by hand, everything. I’m Using a front wheel drive bearing tool set. Any recommendations? Thanks

first , put wheel bearing grease on the edge of the bearing before you push it in. And really, it's better to use a machine press to press it in, I can do that in a minute with my 20 ton press. So maybe pay a guy with a press just to put it back in
