If it can be replaced you would have to go to someone that had a press that could do the job. But by trying to knock it out with a hammer you could mess up the surface where you have to place in the new bearing.

How to replace bearing in rear drum on a 2006 chevy equinox


You need to use a bearing press to get it out and the new one in. You can try to hammer it out with a piece of pipe if you can catch onto the lip. Sometimes wheel bearings get very stuck and if it scores or damages the drum on the way out you may need to get a new drum. If you don't have the tools you might be able to rent or borrow a press from a shop or auto parts store. If you take it to a brake shop and have them press out the bearing and put in the new one it shouldn't cost that much.

How to remove hub assembly bearing


I wasn't sure if you were asking about the front, rear wheel or other assembly.
The most common problem is the front wheel bearing:
I have a 2002 Escape and have changed my bearings. All the Ford Escapes are the same thru 2010. The front wheel bearings on the Escape are simple cartridge bearings, or Gen1 bearings, that are pressed onto the hub and knuckle. They are not so simple to replace. Unless you have the experience and tools, you'll need to take it to the dealer or a shop.

You will need a press and the correct press tools.
The knuckle/hub assembly needs to be removed from the vehicle.

Here's the short version:
Remove the tire/wheel.
Remove the brake caliper w/ bracket.
Remove rotor.
Remove the ABS sensor.
Remove axle nut and press the axle inwards, until loose. (sometimes easy, usual needs special tool).
Remove the strut bolts, tie rod, and the lower ball joint from the knuckle/hub assembly. Each of these connections can have it's issues.
Press the hub out of the assembly. One half of the inner race will be stuck on the hub. Use a bearing splitter to remove that half.
Remove the snap ring from the knuckle.
Press the rest of the bearing from the knuckle.
Press the new bearing into the knuckle. Press on the outer race only!
Snap ring.
Make sure the dust sheild is still in place.
Press the hub into the bearing. The bearing must be supported on the inner race only!
The point is that you must not press thru the balls in the bearing. That can cause the bearing to get brinnelled.... not good.
Reassemble the knuckle on the vehicle in reverse order. I like to put a little grease on the axle spline. The axle spline has a little helix on it... about half a degree. It's supposed to be a tight fit. The torque on the axle nut is 300Nm (about 220ft-lbs?). This torque is very, very important. It is needed to keep the bearing together and at the correct preload, so use a big torque wrench.

...or you can take it to the dealer.

Good luck.
Here are some pictures that may help illustrate the difficulty:

Having trouble removing right front wheel bearing on my 04 vue i tried tapping, chisels, air chisel, penetrating oil nothing seems to work.


The Saturn Vue should have a bolt-on bearing with integrated wheel hub and ABS. It is held on with 3 bolts.

I assume that you got the wheel, rotor, and brake caliper off. You've removed the 3 bolts thru the knuckle to the bearing. And you have the axle nut off and the axle pushed out or at least lose from the bearing spline.

The bearing can get stuck in the aluminum knuckle pilot diameter. The galvanic corrosion between the bearing and knuckle can lock the bearing into the knuckle pretty tightly. It is not a press fit, it's just stuck. I had one GM bearing that had to be pushed out with a hydraulic press.

Keep soaking with penetrating oil and keep hitting it. Otherwise you'll need to remove the knuckle/bearing from the car and find a press.

Repair hud assenbly front


If you are talking about the front wheel hub assemblies, the bearing is pretty difficult to replace. It can not be repaired or adjusted.

How to replace a wheel bearing on a 2005 ford escape 4x4


All the Ford Escapes (thru 2011) have a Gen1 cartridge type bearing on the front. I'm pretty sure that the bearing is also the same for all Escapes; FWD and AWD, V6 and I4. I'm not sure, but I suspect the Hybrids are the same also.
The Gen1 bearing is difficult to replace yourself unless you have access to a hydraulic press.
The bearing has a press fit into the knuckle and the wheel hub. For most people, I would recommend the dealer or a decent shop.

If you're brave, here are the shorthand steps to replace the bearing:
Remove the wheel/tire.
Remove the brake caliper and rotor.
Remove the ABS sensor. It's a small bolt, be careful.
Remove the axle nut and press the axle shaft out (You should use a special tool for this) Beating it with a hammer is NOT recommended and will damage the axle threads. It's not stuck or rusty, the spline on the axle has a slight Helix that locks it to the hub.
Remove the lower ball joint. Do this first, while the strut and tie rod are still connected, because you might have to really work it over. Remove the cross (pinch) bolt and nut. Pull the ball joint out. If stuck, you may have to open the pinch joint a little with a punch or chisel.
Remove the tie rod nut and the tie rod from the knuckle.
Remove the 2 strut bolts.

I'm pretty sure that the knuckle/hub assembly is now loose, then:
Press the hub out of the bearing. Half of the inner bearing race will be stuck on the hub.
Press that inner race off the hub. Maybe a "bearing splitter" will work.
Remove the snap ring from the knuckle.
Press the rest of the bearing out of the knuckle. It's OK to press against the inner race; you're going to replace it anyway. (Note: whatever you're doing, don't try to save the bearing. Don't.)
The new bearing can be installed either way; it's symetrical.
Press the new bearing into the knuckle. Press on the outer race only! Do not press across the inner race. You can use the old outer race as a press tool. Do not damage the seal retainer or seal.
Insert the snap ring. Make sure it's fully seated. Check it again.
Press the hub into the bearing. Do NOT press thru the knuckle (and the bearing) as a base. You must support the bearing at the inner race. Using the knuckle will damage the bearing, and you'll be doing this all over in about 500 miles.

The knuckle can be reinstalled on the vehicle in whatever order you want, but I recommend putting some grease on the spline and put it on the axle first and hand start the nut. You can torque the nut later. The axle nut torque is 300Nm (220Ft-lbs).

Good luck.

Does the front wheel bearing for a 2002 kia spectra have to be pressed in or can i simply remove and replace it?


This is a job and a half! YES, you will have to press them out and in. You have to remove everything. Brake caliper and bracket, rotor, strut, tie rod, and ball joint. Take out the whole knuckle, with the hub still in it. Then you have to flip it over and press the hub out of the bearing. THIS WILL DESTROY THE OLD BEARING! The outer piece of the bearing will be stuck on the hub. Put the hub in a vice, heat the piece of the bearing that's stuck on, and wedge/pry/bang it off. Now go back to the knuckle, and remove the retainer ring (which was hidden behind the hub). Flip over and press out the remaining bearing piece. Clean it all up and press the new bearing in. Be sure when you press it in that you use a cylindrical block that hits the outer edge of the bearing, or you'll push the guts right through. Put in the retainer ring (if it won't go in, you have to press more). I recommend a new ring, they're like $5 at the dealer. The old one will likely get bent. Now, press the hub into the new bearing. At this stage, BE SURE YOU SUPPORT THE CENTER OF THE BEARING, OR YOU'LL PUSH IT THROUGH. Put the car back together and you should be fine. I know this may not be the "correct/professional" way to do it, but it's what I had to do to spend $50 instead of almost $500 at a shop. I have 176,000 miles on my Spectra, and I've done both sides twice. Good luck!

Replacingfrontwheelbearingsihaverotoroffbutdontknowhowtoinnerbearingoutandraces


There is a Ford Rotunda tool called a "Bearing Cup Puller" (Part #T77-1102-A) that is used to remove the bearings. You can obtain a similar tool from the major tool suppliers. The procedure is rather straight forward, but requires a press to push out the shaft if it will not come out by itself or is stuck (to get at the bearings).
