Remove the brake caliper
Remove the disc, (rotor)
Remove the 34mm nut on the axel shaft
Remove the three (3) bolts from the back side
You will need a wheel puller (three jaw will work well)
Place the puller over the hub and tighten, this will push the shaft out of the hub. Now you have to pull the hub assy. out of the mounting bracket. I found hitting each side,of the hub with a lead hammer to work well. Don't forget to disconnect the ABS senser on the back side of the hub assy.
Do not over tighten the 34mm axel nut when you install the new assy. If you use an impact whrench on it you will damage the bearing.

Sometimes tires get noisier as they wear out. Check the tread depth on the tires, see how close it is to the minimum. At 43k miles you're probably gonna need new tires pretty soon anyway.

If you're talking about the front wheel bearings, they can't be serviced. They can only be replaced. They are sealed for life (even if the life seems to be a little short).
Here's the front bearing:
I never replaced the rear bearings on my 2002 Escape 4X4, but here's a picture of the rear hub.
