The BMW special tool designed for the purpose works excellent.

Repeated impacts won't do shit. You need slow consistant pulling force to remove it.

Have fun installing the new ones.

also, as a warning. Any impacts on the wheel bearing will cause immediate to soon failure.

You must use a puller/presser tool like the OE tool to install.

Also put the bearing in the freezer overnight (still in its plastic baggy) and pull it out when you are ready to press it in. If its cold enough, and you are quick you can (seriously) just about DROP it in.
