Wheel bearings is a fun and easy job! You get to play with a fistful of creamy, delicious wheel bearing grease.
Far more fun than, say, having hot black diesel-soot motor oil run down your arm and pool in your armpit the very first time you change the motor oil, because you're 17 years old and don't know what you're doing (cough, that was a long time ago).
Or, say, taking a shower in warm yellow coolant because you forgot to loosen the drain plug in the block to drain out ALL the coolant at the appropriate time (cough, that wasn't really so long ago).
Yep. Changing wheel bearings isn'so bad.
