You will need a press to do it properly. You need to replace the Brg and collar and seal, much easier when you have access to a press.

+1 for using a press... hitting and slamming bearings ruins them as the races are easily damaged and only take a thou or two to ruin a bearing race...

a pressing provides a nice even constant pressure as opposed to hitting with a hammer...

Cheers,
Tim

I suggest you take the axle to a workshop and get them to remove the old one an d press on the new one.
