Remove tire, remove caliper bracket (w caliper), pull rotor, remove 3-4 bolts, remove center nut, beat old one out (air hammer for the win- or reinstall tire and use PS box and a block of wood to walk it out), apply wire brush, apply never seize, reverse order.
01 ford escape. If I recall from sourcing parts for the rear, front hub, bearing and hardware kit is around $50. Rear bearing came out in pieces and was a bitch. The hub goes through the bearing onto the axle, bearing was was naturally seized in the hub.At least I have experience for the front now.
