Lightly losen the lug nuts with the tires on the the ground. Jack up the car and remove the tire according to the owner's manual. Make sure to block the wheels. After the tire is removed, release the park brake. Support the car on jack stands. Remove four bolts from the rear of hub. The hub nut will be 29 mm - it is important that you have a tight fit if you attempt to remove the nut.

At this point you MAY have to loosen or remove the remove the emergency brake cable. Either way the hub is ready to be removed. The front of the hub (with the lugs) and the bearing will come out and the back plate and brake shoes will remain in place.

Once you get it off, you may either purchase a hub assembly (which includes the hub with a new bearing in place ready-to-go) or take the existing hub and a replacement bearing to an auto machine shop which can easily remove the old bearing and install the new bearing. Using extreme care you can remove the old one using bearing pullers and prybars and replace the bearing using large deep sockets or a properly sized piece of steel pipe.

Since you have the hub apart, you should inspect the brake shoes and (brake) wheel cylinders and replace them as needed. Replace brake parts on both sides if you replace them on either.

Put the hub back into the brake shoes. It may only line up one way. Finger tighten ALL FOUR of the bolts and then tighten. Replace the tire and remove the lifting equipment. Start slowly so the brakes can readjust!

Forget the oil leak thats just the rear end oil seal but the grinding noise is a wheel bearing for sure and as you go around a bend one way the noise lessens ,these cars are bulltet proof and the gearbox is stout so suspect a wheel bearing or ask a local mechanic to have a drive and get his opinion

I want to relace a rear wheel bearing on my 03 explorer,to save some money, i have done the fronts,are ther rears more difficult, and what has to be done to remove them ?


not knowing which axle you have makes it hard to give you a for sure answer but I'll try ,, the bearing in the rear end are either pressed onto the axles or into the housing,, so not something you want to do unless you have done it before,, the axles have to be removed to do this

03 transit front wheel bearing


That doesn't mean you have to go out and buy a 37 mm wrench, the nut should be finger tight, if not a pair of channelock pliers will do. The nut just snugs up the bearing, too tight and it will cook. Pull the lock pin, spin off the nut, bump the rotor with a rubber hammer and the bearing should pop out in your hand, you have to replace the seal when you pull the rotor off. Sometimes the race on the inside gets stuck, sometimes it welds itself to the spindle, depends on how hot you got it, you should be able to tap it off with a hammer and a drive pin from the rear. If you can't get it to move, take a dremel to it and cut the thing in half. I hope this is what you are asking.
