How do I grease the wheels and what brand grease do I buy?

If you are repacking front wheel bearings on a car with disc brakes,you will want to buy wheel bearing grease suitable for the higher heat generated by the disc brakes.Any name brand wheel bearing grease will work as long as it is rated to be used on vehicles with disc brakes.
TIP: Do not wash the wheel bearings in solvent to clean them if they are in good shape and have no metallic particles in the existing grease.Just repack using the new grease to push the old grease out of the bearings.After wiping the hub clean add some clean grease evenly into the hub,install the repacked bearings and new seals and JUST SNUG the nut which adjusts the bearing and install a NEW cotter pin.

Tires rotate and sounds like stone on tires/upon inspect [negative results]

Hi i would check the rotation of the tyres, (IE) TAKE the right hand rear wheel and put that on the left hand front, and do the same with the other one , also check that you have no flat spots on the tyres from hard breaking and the vehicle standing for a period of time can cause this to happen,also its not to hard to repack your bearings with grease, to see if that is the problem, and remember oil and grease are a lot cheaper than parts, good luck and safe driving

Wheel bearings. Price to repair or replace?

If they are sealed bearing you have to replace them. If they are roller bearings you can clean and repack them. Buy new parts on eBay. You get the same part for half the cost and they deliver to your front door or mail box. Hope this helps and have a nice evening. Peter

If you're talking about the front wheel bearings, they can't be serviced. They can only be replaced. They are sealed for life (even if the life seems to be a little short).
Here's the front bearing:

I never replaced the rear bearings on my 2002 Escape 4X4, but here's a picture of the rear hub.

2005 ford escape assembly diagram for the front axle

If they are sealed bearings, you will need a press to get them out. If they are bolt in, just remove the brake pads/rotors, then the axle nut, then the bolts holding the wheel bearing in. Install in reverse order.

Need to replace the front left wheel bearing on a 2003 escape two wheel drive v6, how do i get the bearing out?

You need to remove the tire, brake caliper and rotor. Remove the axle nut and hub bolts. Take the hub (bearing is pressed in it) to a machine shop to have new bearings pressed in.

A mechanic will usually charge around 300 dollars per bearing (cost included).
