How to change the rear axel bearrings on ford f 1=150

have to pull the diff cover,remove the small bolt that holds the pin,remove the pin . With wheels off ,push the axle in remove c-clip ,slide axle out. You will need a slide hammer to remove the bearing.(or pull both sides and drive out with a long piece of rebar from the other end)
Be sure to check the axle surface where the bearing rides,if is damaged the parts stores sell a repair bearing that makes the rollers ride in a different spot on the axle.(called "axle savers")

Rear end??

No not both sides. The rear end of your car has a normal standared rear axel. it has many seals but if the ones at the wheel hubs on the outside of the axel behind the tires are leaking it would only show on one side or the other. Also most leaks in this area is due to a bad wheel bearing.

How to remove rear axle from a 2000 mercury marquis to replace bearing have wheel off and calibers

Open the rear end, and take out keeper that holds the axel in..

if you push on the axel a bit and feel it slide into the rearend, that will show you the keeper at the other end...

Remember to have a catchpan under the rearend when takeing the cover off, as the fluid will drain out, and make sure to replace the fluid, (can't tell you how many get in a hurry and forget that part) Check with Ford to make sure what type fluid it is, (synth mix, full synth, or standard 80/90)

How to remove rear axel from ford crown victoria tne axel is loose and making noise leaking fluid i think it neds a new seal

do u mean the axle has "play" when u grab the tire and wiggle it up and down?? if it has play, then it propbably needs an AXLE SEAL AND AXLE will have to carefully inspect the axle itself where the bearing rides for any gouging or damage. THIS JOB requires a decent amount of mechanical skill. 1ST you need to remove the rear end COVER and drain out the gear oil into a drain pan.2ND remove the brake caliper and rotor . 3RD spin the" ring and pinion " around until u see a 5/16 bolt that passes thru from the pass. side to the drivers side. u have to remove this bolt. u will need to "hold "the gears from turning in order to break loose this bolt. 4TH remove this bolt and slide out the large metal ""PIN" that 'divides" the rear end in half. NOW CAREFULLY WITHOUT TURNING THE REAR END SPIDER GEARS,PUSH IN THE AXLE TOWARDS THE INSIDE SO U CAN REMOVE THE "C-CLIP" AT INNER END OF AXLE. now u can slide out axle and youll be able to replace seal and if needed axle bearing. let me know if u need more info.

I have movement in the rear wheels on a 2003 Ford Mustang.Do I need to change the wheel bearings? How do I remve the hub?

Sounds as though your bearing could be bad, does your Differential have a cover on the back ?If so you'll have to remove it and remove the retainer rings (1) on each side of the inner axel .Then you should be able to remove the axels,but still may have to remove the Brake back cover also .Notice how much gear lube is left in the housing when you remove the cover . Don't forget to also replace the dust seals as well .
