The wheel bearing assy is pressed into the hub---you need to remove the front hub assy and take it to a parts store that has a machine shop----or you go to a salvage yard and buy a used hub and install it--way easier...

Why does my ford escort give a grinding noise from the front left wheel on braking, with or without the brakes applied?


Your brake squealers are rubbing, telling you it is time to change the pads before they wear down the rotors. If that isn't the sound you got then the bearing is shot and you have less time to fix it because it will weld itself to the spindle and you will have to replace more parts. Hope this helps.

Need assistance on how to change the rear wheel bearings on a ford escort 1996 n reg


If its got drums its no problem, remove the wheel, take off the dust cap in the center of the drum,remove the split pin and the center nut 24mm, i think.
Take off the drum, clean out the old grease from the bearing, and take out the roller bearings, then you need to knock out the bearing races with a punch.
Use the old races to knock the new ones in, grease the new bearings and reinsert to the races, reassemble to to rear hub.
Dont overtighten the nut, nipped up a bit and backed off will do
