Question about 2002 Ford Explorer
If this is a drum bearing, it is usual to replace the drum and fit a new bearing.
Yes, they are an "interference" press fit. The bearing is actually slightly larger than the hole it's going in - by 0.006" or thereabouts.
You need an expanding machined mandrell that is an exact match to fit behind it, then it's usually pulled out with inertia or hydraulically.
If you are doing this yourself, it would be wise to phone around varous local garages, and pay for them to remove them - with the correct tools. It will still end up cheaper than buying the tools yourself.
Thanks for using Fixya!
