How to replace rear axel wheel bearings on 97 ford explored

You will need an internal bearing puller. You will have to remove the rear axle by pulling off the differential cover. Then remove the bolt holding the spider gear cross shaft in place. Remove the shaft and spider gears. If your tire is already removed and brake drum is off, push in the axle and remove the circle clip. Once this is out you can slide your axle out you can remove the backing plate for your brakes and get to the bearing. Pull the seal out and pull out the bearing with a puller and slide hammer. Install the new bearing by hitting on the outside race ONLY. Install a new seal and install in reverse order.

Sounds like a wheel bearing, With vehicle moving at a speed you can hear the noise, rock the steering back and forth, if the noise changes it is the wheel bearing. Very common for front and rear wheel bearings to fail on this make and model vehicle.

The wheel bearing on the front right side of 2002 Ford Explorer

I removed the whole knuckle and placed it on support then used a sledge hammer to knock the old bearing out. It is a simple job but would be easier with a bearing hub puller that I don't think anyone has.
