I have a 2004 Escape 4x4 that I replaced a front wheel bearing myself last fall. It was not "easy", but it was doable. First thing I did was subscribe to Alldatadiy.com online to get detailed parts and service directions. For about $25 it gave me exact directions and steps to take. It did require some mid range automotive repair skills as well as a large hammer and a hydraulic press to reassemble. About $30.00 for the bearing and about 3-4 hours of labor...although next time I could probably do it in 2.

Good luck,

Pete

My 2001 ford escape has developed a humming sound coming from the front tires. It seems to quieten when I steer left. The bearings seem tight.


Most likely a wheel bearing good possibility it is the right one if it gets a little worse when you turn to the right then its probably the right side wheel bearing, they tend to get louder under load. Also slight chance it could be a bad tire.Howie

How to change front wheel bearing 2001 ford escape


The steering knuckle has to be removed first,the bearing is sealed type and it is pressed in. You will need to use a hydraulic press to remove. you could remove the knuckle yourself and take it to a repair shop and they could install the bearing for you if you do not have access to a press.
