Rather than just the bearing, I suggest a new half shaft as the bearings and ABS tone wheel are already assembled. These Escapes are notorious for cracking the tone wheel setting off a code and then disabling the AWD system. So for a very few dollars more than it would take to disassemble the shaft , install bearings and tone wheel just get a new one.
remove the right front wheel. remove the axle nut. remove the ball joint bolt and nut. remove the ball joint from the knuckle. drive the axle out of the hub. remove the 2 carrier bearing nuts. pull the axle out. make sure you torque all bolts and nuts.
I have a 2002 Escape. Assuming you are talking about the front wheel hubs? No, the Escapes do not use cotter pins. There is a splined shaft with a very slight helix angle; about 0.5 degrees, for an interference fit. The axle nut that clamps it all together is torqued to 300Nm (220ft-lbs?). No cotter pin.
use a pry bar and put it in between the trany and the axle and give it a pull,or use a hammer and a bar place bar against back side of axle and hit it with hammer to break free, theres a c clip on the end of the shaft that holds it in,
If they are sealed bearings, you will need a press to get them out. If they are bolt in, just remove the brake pads/rotors, then the axle nut, then the bolts holding the wheel bearing in. Install in reverse order.
I am assuming this is an all wheel drive. That being the case you probably have an axle CV joint going out. If you hear noise when making a sharp left or right turn and accelerating that would more than likely be the problem. And, yes this is a serviceable part. Easy to replace if you have the proper tools to accomplish the task. Good luck.
