SOURCE: removing the right intermediate axle shaft

i can only guess it is a 3.0l 4v well as far as the axle goes, the rh outer half shaft seperates at the splines on the intermediate shaft.
the intermediate shaft is the solid shaft from the trans to a bearing support bracket and ends after that. it is externally splined.
the rh axleshaft , inner cv joint, is internally splined.
to remove the rh axleshaft, remove the rh wheel and splash shield.
removed the lower balljoint pichbolt and seperate the lower balljoint front the steering knuckle. take the axle nut off and using a large brass drift or hardwood, drive the axle out of the bearing-hub assembly. DO NOT DAMAGE THE THREADS. also use some lubricant on the axle nut dissasembly. after the outer axle end is free, using the same brass drift or other, hit the inner cv joint and drive it off the intermediate shaft. inspect the splines closely because these fail and cause a no-drive condition.
then the mounint bolts for the support bearing and pull the intermedate shaft out, you will loose some fluid.

SOURCE: 2005 ford escape assembly diagram for the front axle

If they are sealed bearings, you will need a press to get them out. If they are bolt in, just remove the brake pads/rotors, then the axle nut, then the bolts holding the wheel bearing in. Install in reverse order.

SOURCE: how to remove the right


Removal & Installation

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
  2. Place the transmission in the PARK position.
  3. Remove or disconnect the following:

Front wheel
Front brake disc
Front axle wheel hub nut and discard the nut
Tie rod end and separate the lower ball from the steering knuckle
Halfshaft from the steering knuckle
Halfshaft

To install:
  1. When seated properly, the halfshaft bearing retainer circlip will snap into the differential side gear groove.
  2. Position the halfshaft and joint so that the splines align with differential side gear splines. Push the halfshaft into side gear.
  3. Install or connect the following:
Halfshaft into the steering knuckle
Lower ball joint to steering knuckle. Torque the pinch bolt to 52 ft. lbs. (70 Nm).
Tie rod end. Torque the nut to 41 ft. lbs. (55 Nm).
New front axle wheel hub nut. Torque the nut to 214 ft. lbs. (290 Nm).
Front brake disc
Front wheel
To be very honest, a manual to help guide you thru this process should be obtained due to special tools that will be required for this repair procedure. This is a fairly large job, and I do recommend a manual. We do not have full manuals on this site due to copyright laws.

How do i get the alnteror out of a 2004 ford escape


V-6?

You will need to remove the drive axle and in some causes the motor mount. Yup, I'm serious! Sometimes with just the drive axle removed you can find the right rubix cube cobination to squeeze the alternator out. When you do remember what position it is in so you can get the new one in.

Remove alternator on 03 ford escape


2001 ford escape. I have done this three times:

Loosen lugs, and spindle nut on axle. Jack up vehicle. Remove tire. Remove brake caliper, pads, bracket, and rotor, secure caliper away from work area. Pull abs sensor connector from tire well, disconnect connector. Remove abs wire from tire well and brake bracket. Remove tie rod from spindle assembly. Remove pinch bolt form lower ball joint. remove nuts from strut bolts. To remove the spindle: 1. Separate ball joint and pull strut bolts 2. pull bolts and pull off ball joint. the second way may not work SAFELY on some vehicles. The axle is removed by two nuts on the intermediate shaft bearing. Pull out axle. Remove alternator and bracket.

Here is the tricky part: the alternator comes out through the hole where the axle was. I found that jacking the front of the motor up helps and position the alternator pulley up, two bolt holes out, fight it from there, careful not to stick the studs from the axle bearing into the case. May take a LITTLE prying. Once you get it it will just drop

Need to replace the front left wheel bearing on a 2003 escape two wheel drive v6, how do i get the bearing out?


You need to remove the tire, brake caliper and rotor. Remove the axle nut and hub bolts. Take the hub (bearing is pressed in it) to a machine shop to have new bearings pressed in.

A mechanic will usually charge around 300 dollars per bearing (cost included).
