    It is just a bearing.

    U will need special tools, remove the hub assembly and then have a machine shop install the new bearing.

The bearing has to be pressed in, quite the job even doing it at the shop- you will have to have some sort of press to press the bearing in.

The rear bearing is a complete unit held on by a single centre nut. Remove the hub, press out the old bearing, refit the new one. This is a safety critical item and require trained knowledge and workshop tools. A new nut is required for restaking when correctly torqued up.
Go online to images for Ford Focus wheel bearing to get an idea of whats involved.

DO YOU HAVE DO REPACK WHEEL BEARING ON A 2005 ESCAPE AFTER 120,000 MILES


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:
