03 Escape Wheel Bearing

175k and keep on going. I am hearing a grinding noise every time I make a left hand turn. I think that it may be my wheel bearing on the right. Before I go and replace it myself I just wanted to know if I need special tools or troubles I may encounter. Has anyone else had this problem?

2004 Ford Escape Wheel Bearing problem

Location northest U.S.
Posts 158 the bearing has to be pressed out of the hub and a new one has to be pressed in that is something a machine shop would do for you but you have to take the hub off first.if you think that you could do such a job I will be happy to post the way to do it. On a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being easy 10difficult I would give it a 4. special tools may be needed.

it is kinda long. apply parking brake and jack up the truck and place it on jack stands. Remove tire,remove the brake caliper and caliper housing,remove brake rotor, Remove the axle bolt, remove the tie rod end nut and remove tie rod end.remove lower ball joint pinch nut and push lower control arm down so that ball joint stud comes out of the control arm.remove abs wheel sensor (if Equipped),remove the upper bolt on the spindle the holds the strut and knock the spindle down off the strut. The axle may not come out very easily so you will need a hub puller to push it out.to install reverse procedure.the axle nut torque value is 214ft.lbs.
good luck.
