Replace wheel bearing/hub?

Anyone had to replace this? I can hear mine grinding and making noise. Time to replace I think. Anyone else go through this?

When I traded in my 07 GT it was making road noise bad I thought it was tires at first but when I traded it in the Dealer said it was probably a bad wheel bearing. Could be a common problem.

Are you talking front or rear...? The job is significantly different depending on the end you're working on. Not difficult, either way but, different.

Much easier. It's a straightforward job, if that is indeed the problem.

I haven't looked specifically but, if it's like every other American made since Ben Hur rode chariot it's pretty easy.

Pull the wheel, pull the caliper and hang it out of the way, pop the dust cap, undo the spindle nut and pull the outer bearing and rotor, pop/pry the back bearing out, pack the new ones with grease and put them in, torque the spindle nut til you get drag and back off a quarter turn and put everything back on. Job done.

Ya I'm familiar with this job, just the dust cap it says DONT EVER REMOVE!
And I didn't know if it was a problem to do it myself or dealer.

If the car's under warranty, I'd just see if Ford'll do it for you. Can't hurt to ask. Frankly, I'm pretty surprised you're having issues with this, unless you smacked a curb at some time.

This ^ I will use all my warranty until the very last day. It's paid for so you might as well use it.
