you need to remove the spindle assy from the truck & press the bearing out & in or you need to use a tool called the hub tammer to remove & install the hub bearing

Three bolts is the easy part. You will likely have to have the old bearing pressed out with hydraulics and a new one pressed in....accordianman

I had this same problem myself. The hub is a sealed unit and must be purchased as a whole assembly to the tune of around $400 from Toyota. Long story short I never replaced my hub. The problem turned out to be tires that were worn out. I figured that out when i rotated the tires and the sound moved to the front of the car... Go figure. Replaced the tires and all the noise went away.

The wheel bearings in a Ford Taurus are located in the hub/bearing assembly. Replacing the hub/bearing assembly is a straightforward process -- remove the brakes, then the bearing, and reassemble.
