   Thanks to everyone (and there were quite a few) who responded to my query
on the above. You guys know who you are. I eventually found a shop willing
to do the press work for a very reasonable cost - 10 quid a side, - a lot
less bother than trying to assemble tools to do it myself.

     Job done. Thanks guys.

HF also sells a front wheel bearing replacement toolkit (works for both
front and rear on quattros).  It's a bit more expensive than the ball
joint kit, but it worked quite well on my 5ktq and should work well on a
4kq.  It's also a lot less expensive than the hubshark kit.

I also used a bearing separator to pull the old inner race off of the
hub.  They have those for cheap too.

A search of the archives revealed some good tips and tricks for doing
this when I was preparing for mine.

In looking closer I notice you're in the UK, so I don't know if you
could find a source for a similar too.
