Question about 1999 Mercury Cougar
Well,I like Auto-Zone and other discount stores,but for critical parts I'd buy the original Ford/Mercury or NAPA parts.
I'm talking timing chain or belt and gears,fuel pumps,oil pumps, and in general critical parts hard to replace.
If it's really wearing out bearings badly, you might have a bent or deformed axle,which is not being detected. Get the axle checked out before installing another bearing on it.
That's all I can think of right now.Hope it might help you! don-ohio (:^)

Buy Chilton or Haynes manual.
Break loose lug nuts. (One turn)
Lift car with jack.
Remove brake caliper and hang with something other than the brake line.
Remove brake rotor.
Remove large hub nut. Borrow socket from auto parts store.
Hub should slide off. A 2 jaw puller may be needed if it doesn't slide right off.
You are supposed to discard the hub nut and buy a new one. I always reuse mine...
After installing new hub, torque hub nut at 188-254 ft-lbs. (Which is a lot.)
Reinstall everything in reverse order.
Now is a good time to clean and lube the caliper slide pins and check the condition of the brake pads.
Torque lug nuts 85-105 ft-lbs.

You will need to optain a wire schematics for the abs system and related parts. The fuse is blowing because there is an obvious short circuit in the system. The wire schematics will help you trace the shorted power wire thats giving you problems. Repair wire as nesessary. (Replace damaged section of wire) Replace fuse.

noises during slow tight turns are usually CV joints going bad. A way to check, is to jack up one front wheel, set the parking brake, and put the car in drive without pressing the gas. Turn the wheel to both extremes, and listen for the noise. Repeat with the other front wheel (set the first one back down) and listen. Whichever makes the noise, is the side you need to change.
