Hello - if you replace the wheel bearing/hub assembly, no, it does not require pressing. This is the recommended replacement approach. Pressing the bearing off/onto the hub requires specialized equipment, with high risk for damage. I would recommend a wheel bearing/hub replacement service by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
