Its one of those things they can come out without to much hassle with a few taps or fall apart and end up trying to grind the inner part off the drive shaft and trying to get the outer part out if the hub with nothing to get a purchase on other than where the ball bearings sit ....

the hub bearing puller kits and a 2 leg puller/bearing clamp set makes easy work of fwd style bearings and other bearing jobs
You can use the kits on car to remove and refit bearing (saves fitting damage errors) and also can make a puller plate up so can pull centre spindles too with the screw rod (can slide hammer those but it a bit rough if they tight). I used kit on subarus mainly but done the nissan with it also. basic kit about 45GBP roughly for unbranded set . For less than 100GBP you could have enough puller equipment handle most wheel and gearbox bearing and engine needs etc .

Pressed on the new bearing at work and one the seals is loose even tho it's fully inside the hub. Eg when you turn the shaft, it turns the seal too.
FFS, why is it always me!
I've squirted some thread lock into the gap and hoping that'll fix it.

Is this a common problem?
If the thread luck doesn't hold I'll use silicon.

The oem Jap bearing kit is only about £30 from bearing suppliers, ICP can do the Jap ones too if ask but thee fookers seem got liking for cheap optimal bearings with the bullshit germany branding. Difference is night and day if compare finish and tolerances, even by eye you can see the leap in quality of the Jap bearing kits.
