Front wheel bearing replacement?

Trying to replace right front wheel bearing on my '99 GT. Ran in to some problems after removing caliper, actually have no idea how to remove disc and old wheel bearing. Special tools or technique required?? Any insight or instruction would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

If you have never removed the rotors before there may be one or two retainers on the studs that you can cut off. You don't need to replace them. (see pic below)

The hub is seperate from the rotor. You replace the bearing in the front by replacing the whole hub. You will need a new hub assembly, retainer (a special, one use, 36mm nut), and dust cover.

Thanks for the info. Managed to do the whole job myself. Easy and cheap fix approx. $85 CDN. for the part. I recommend to anyone needing to replace the front wheel bearing assembly to do it themselves. However, an especially large ratchet was used in the process that some people may not have access to.

any reason why you replaced the wheel bearing? Were you getting a funny sounds or something. Reson im asking is that recently my stang started to make this low pitched squeek squeek sounds as the car starts to roll from a stop. It goes away after it sounds off for about 3 revolutions (guess the wheel is just turning faster at that point). Maybe its a wheel bearing?

No, my car wasn't making any noise like that. My car was making a loud vibration/humming noise coming from the right front wheel especially at highway speeds. Took it in for a diagnostic once I noticed the noise getting worse. I suggest you do the same.
