Yes, you can replace a wheel bearing that is pressed in, however this usually requires a hydraulic press n order to remove and replace the bearing. Alternatively, you may remove the hub and take it to a machine shop or another mechanic to have them remove it. If not done properly, this can damage the housing that the bearing is pressed into.
