Re: Rear Hub and bearing replacement cost
You are looking at $197.88 to $229.09 for the hub assembly (this is for both the bearings and the hubs) and this is just a guess but anywhere from $95.00 to $125.00 for the labor cost
but you can do what I did find a place where the salvage yard is self service and take the hub and bearing assembly off the car in the yard and put on yours cause I only paid $18.00 for the hub and bearings taking them off and putting back on myself you can do it just take your time and have someone to help you and do one wheel at a time

New style bearings are all pressfit bearings, if your hub came right out of the bearing assembly, it is time for the whole assembly. The hub assembly has a locking ring that holds the outer bearing race inside the hub, after the wheel hub has been pressed out. Then, after the lockring has been removed it can be pressed out and the new bearing can be pressed back in and then the lockring reinserted. Then the wheel hub gets pressed in.
A Front Wheel Drive Vehicle Can Have Two Types Of Rear Wheel Bearings: Serviceable Bearings, Or Nonserviceable, Sealed Bearings. When Sealed Bearings Fail, The Bolts Holding The Bearing And Hub To The Axel Or Control Arm Must Be Removed. When Installing The New Bearing Assembly, Torque The Bolts To Specifications.Some Manufacturers require The Use Of New Fasteners When Rear Bearings And Hubs Are Replaced.
When A Serviceable Wheel Bearing Is Used, The Bearing Can Be Disassembled And Packed With Grease.It Is Serviced Like A Front Wheel Bearing On A Rear-wheel-Drive-Car.
CAUTION: Do not loosen the axle wheel hub retainer until the wheel and tire are removed from the vehicle. Wheel bearing damage will occur if the wheel bearing is unloaded with the weight of the vehicle applied.
1. Remove the wheel and tire assembly.
NOTE: Have an assistant press the brake pedal to keep the axle from turning.
2. Remove the nut and washer and discard the nut.
3. Remove the parking brake shoes.
CAUTION: Do not damage the boot while separating the toe link from the knuckle.
4. Remove the nut and bolt and separate the toe link from the wheel knuckle and discard the nut.
CAUTION: Do not damage the boot while separating the ball joint from the knuckle.
5. Remove the nut and bolt and separate the upper ball joint from the wheel knuckle and discard the nut.
CAUTION: Do not use a hammer to separate the outboard CV joint from the hub. Damage to the threads and internal CV joint components may result.
6. Using the special tool, press the outboard CV joint until it is loose from the hub.
7. Remove the nut and bolt and the wheel knuckle, hub and bearing as an assembly and discard the nut.

2. Remove the three bolts.
CAUTION: Make sure that the press adapter outside diameter is slightly smaller than the hub outside diameter or damage to the knuckle will result.
3. Using a suitable press, remove the hub from the bearing and discard the hub.
NOTE: The retainer ring is tapered and must be installed flat side down.
4. Remove and Discard the retainer ring.
5. Using a suitable press, remove the bearing from the wheel knuckle and discard the bearing.
CAUTION: The hub and bearing cannot be reused after disassembly.
To install, reverse the removal procedure.
The rear wheel bearings is a bolt in hub unit and is not separately serviceable on this car.
Any attempt to replace just the bearing will have to involve pressing the bearings out then taking them to local bearing suppliers and having replacement units sourced or made based on the dimensions, as their are no correct listings available for this application. The cost would far exceed the $300 for the hub, and quickly.
you must remove brakes, then remove axle nut, then remove upper control arm and finally tie rod stabilizer, remove axle from car then bearing can be accessed. this is a difficult job that requires special tools so be careful
I was referring to the Haynes Repair Manual #36025, Ford Explorer 2002-2006, Chapter 10, "Hub and bearing assembly (rear) replacement": Due to the special tools and expertise required to press the hub and bearing from the rear knuckle, this job should be left to a professional mechanic. However, the knuckle may be removed and taken to an automotive machine shop or other qualified repair facility equipped with the necessary tools.
i know for a fact that the bearing comes with the hub., and if the old bearing is badly damage you may need to heat it to remove it from the axel...so this may be a rather big job if your not equipt
with torch or other ...
