99 Taurus rear wheel bearing

My 99 plain Jane Taurus has a noisey rear wheel bearing that I am giving thought to replacing. I know changing a front bearing is a big job......at least for me but do similar hurdles face one who attempts a rear wheel bearing?

What is involved to change a rear wheel bearing?

Thanks--

Foggy

Take it apart and look. Remove the nut. Pull the bearing assembly off and replace it
with the new one. Simple.

I didn't think anything on a Taurus could be that simple!

Thanks--

Thank you JWKO for your pictorials. That will help me a great deal. Intend to order the bearing tomorrow.
