You'll need a press or a Hub Shark. Without those you'll be hard pressed to get it done period.

Good Luck

And with a Hub Shark, plan on a couple hours minimum.

You still have to pull the axle out of the bearing housing either by disconnecting the suspension or undoing the inner CV, do the pressing, which can be quite pressing in my experience with the Hub Shark, both out and back in, as well as remove the old bearing inner from from the hub.

Here's the Hub Shark puller working on the outer bearing on my 200q20va. This is the setup for pulling the hub. I didn't realize how much pressure was going onto the bar when pulling the bearing outer portion until I took the pix. Then I reversed the "feet" to put the support closer to the screw.



Here's how the Hub Shark's little puller works on removing the bearing inner from the hub:
