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.

    They sit on the Outside of the Spindle. Should not make a Difference on the Braking System and the Bearings if it is Front Wheel Drive or Not.

I have a whining noise coming from my 1999 Mercury Sable. Starts at about 20 MPH and increases getting the loudest around 40-60 mph then holds steady, have shifted to nuetral and whining stays. I believe...

Could be anything connected with the front wheels.
So that includes hub-wheel bearings, axle joints, the differential gears, and the transmission.

Wheelbarrow on 201 mercury sable

The possibilities are depending on whether you hear the sound in the front or back of the car: You have a broken brake pad in the front or a broken brake shoe in the back; there is a bad wheel bearing that needs to be replaced, there is a flat spot on one of your tires.

2004 Mercury Sable LS Premium w/ 65K miles. I was in a drive thru and when I turned the car to a sharp left I heard a loud gringing noise. Any ideas as to what this could be?

Sounds like a bad wheel bearing. Not too hard to replace just greasy. The bearing probably has a flat spot on it caused by lack of grease. If you don't replace it, it could ruin the wheel shaft. Sometime when you put a car on a lift and turn the steering wheel it won't make a sound because the weight of the car is not on the wheels.

Diagram of front hub assembly for 1994 mercury sable.

Best solution to your problem is going ot the junk yard asking them for a left front knuckle. They will charge you about the same price for all this stuff as the auto parts store will charge you for a wheel bearing. After you have this knuckle you will be able to take a few things off of it and be able to put it on with only remvoing like 3-5 bolts.

Front wheels noisy and wobbles

You have a serious problem.

Check lug nuts for tightness first.

If not that then take to mechanic, as you may need CV joints (constant velocity).
