Answers :

I have just finished replacing the RH front wheel bearing on my 2006 F150 Super cab. Time it took was 1-1/2 hours. You will need a freezer to place the new bearing in while you remove the tire and hub.
\015\012The hub has a snap ring in the rear which you will need to remove.
\015\012Next you will need a HYD press to press out the bad bearing. You may need to find a friend to do this that has access to a press capable of at least 30TON.
\015\012It is a must to press out the bearing as square as possible to assure no damage to the hub.
\015\012Important step: Clean very well the hub including the snap ring grove clean clean.
\015\012 Now that the new bearing has been in the freezer for about an hour and fifteen minutes and all the parts are clean you can press in the new bearing, make sure everything is pressing in square (it will require lots of tonnage and possible damage to the bearing or hub can happen.
\015\012Ok now that the bearing is pressed in install the clean snap ring and you are done.
\015\012 Congratulations you just saved $200.00 on an entire assembly from Ford.
\015\012Get it in your mind. If it was installed it can be replaced. Don't let anyone tell you that it is not a serviceable part. Think about it if Ford installed it, it can come out and be replaced.
