Question about Ford Escape
The front wheel bearings on the escapes are pressed in. If you plan on doing it yourself you will need to remove the entire knuckle and then have a machine shop or service center press out the old bearing and press in the new bearing.
To remove the knuckle you will
Remove the caliper and rotor
separate the lower ball joint from the knuckle
remove the axle nut
remove the knuckle to strut bolts.
After you have the new bearing installed and everything is back together make sure you tighten the axle nut to the proper spec. Failure to due so will cause premature failure of the bearing.
