    How hard is it to change a wheel bearing on a 92 SL2? Would I be able to do
    it from a Haynes book? Thanks.

    You will have to remove the caliper and whole knuckle assembly. Be
    sure to scribe the strut/assembly lines to maintain alignment camber.
    Also be careful when pulling off the balljoint.

    Suggest you do not even try to press the bearing in/out yourself.
    Better done by a dealer. Buy the bearing else where and have them
    press in the new one... far cheaper.

    You could also but a used knuckle/bearing from a "recycle yard." for
    an easy swap, but that will most likely require an alignment cost

    Just did it in my '97

    Wheel bearing $34.00 from autozone
    Pressed in at shop $47.00
    Or buy the whole assembly from NAPA for $69.00

    I did my daughters 92SC a couple of years back. Very difficult to devise
    press at home to accomplish job. I made it work, but next time for me, its
    worth the cost to have someone else do the pressing, or as suggested, very
    often you can get the whole assembly for very close to the same cost. More
    than likely, if you change the assembly though, you will need add the cost
    of having the alignment done.
