Question about 1997 Mercury Mountaineer
What special tools are needed for this job
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.

Not too bad. Just remove the Wheel and the Brake Calipers. Then remove the Dust Cap off the Center of the Rotor. Inside there is a Bolt with a Cotter Pin In it. Remove the Cotter Pin and the Bolt. The Rotor will now Slide off the Spindle, The Bearings are Loose and Probably inside the Rotor. Remove these Bearings and get a Tube of High Temp Grease. Put a Big gobb of grease in the Palm of your hand and Roll the Bearing around in your Hand. Be sure to use your Fingers on the Inside of the Bearings to get it in. The same Goes with New Bearings.

2x2 = nothing special since they are old fashion tapered bearings
4x4 = nothing special again BUT the wheel bearing is part of the hub assembly!

Each shaft can be removed individually. Jack up and block the side of the vehicle you are going to be working on. Remove the tire, Brake caliper, and Disc Assembly. You may have to remove the Strut assembly, in most cases you do so make sure everything is straight when you start.
