124 300CE rear bearings

Previously posted but I didn't get a good answer so I thought I would post it again as it is going in the shop this Friday 11-21-03. I have tried another set of tires and that didn't make any difference. It actually makes a lot less noise when I go around a hard right turn. Original question:
One or both of my rear wheel bearings on my 92 300CE are getting pretty noisy and I should change them soon. I live 90 miles from any shop that has the MB tools to do this job so I would like to have a local shop do it. I have read numerous post on this subject and I am still confused about exactly how the bearings should be removed and replaced in the hub carrier. I have worked on my own cars for the past 40+ years and have done a lot of my own work on several MBs. I plan on having the shop completely remove the hub carriers so that the bearings can be pressed out and back in at a local machine shop (I have 2 complete bearing kits). I would like to avoid some of the mistakes I read about in some of the posts on RR of these bearings. If anyone has detailed instructions on how to do this, could you please email them to me at or fax them to Craig at 1- 541-298-0888. Thanks
