Help 04 Escape

Ok yall I have a problem. Besides my truck has a leaking radiator.

My wife's 04 escape front wheel drive only (2wd). Needs new front wheelbearings.

Ok vehicle on jackstands, wheels off, calipers and caliper mounts off, the big nut on the axle shaft is off. Now do I need a puller or something to get the rotor off and the wheelbearing. Because I can not get the rotor off, please tell me I do not need to remove the axle shaft because the only way I see that happening is if I remove the lower ball joint.

Okay, sorry I miss read your question. TO replace the front wheel bearings, YES you will have to press out the axle. Sorry!

I know I have to press the bearing out and in. But I can't even get the brake rotor off. That is where I am stuck at right now.

I am going to tomorrow when I go get the new wheelbearings.

Now I just have to find the press to press them out with.

Some of that is out of order like remove tie rod nut, remove cotter pin. Well in order to remove the tie rod nut you have to remove the cotter pin first.

Same thing goes for the ball joint. You have to remove the pinch bolt and nut before you can seperate the ball joint from knuckle.

No worries man, I pretty much know how to do the job. Just basically had to ask if I needed a puller or a press to remove the hub.
