Another question...

The part arrived today. Genuine MB in the box. The part has a red splash on one side, I assume this is a locator mark. Which side should the red paint splash go to, inside or outside (or does it matter)?

Looking more at the job in the manual, it appears the size of the MB removal/install tool predicates removal of the axle shaft and brakes. I'm thinking of a somewhat smaller press, a 3/8" or 1/2" bolt or allthread backed by a stout washer and socket. Looks like I should be able to accomplish without total disassembly. Any thoughts?
