Need factory manual to do wheel bearings

Can anyone link me or email me the section to do wheel bearings on the ranger? Haynes manual does a quick reference to them, but no detail at all.
Is everything held in by snap rings? I know I dont get the simplicity of the 32mm nut.
Also can I get the section on doing the CV's? Again is it just a clip in the diff that I have to use a pry bar to pop the CV out?


1998 4x4 4.0...obviously the ****ty PHV system.

Exactly like that, but I need it for a 98 ranger. It has the PHV system in it.

Thanks though

the bearings are in a sealed hub unit. There is a great how-to in the explorer-forums: How To: Replacing Front Hub / Bearing 1995+ Ford Explorer IFS - Ford Explorer Ranger Enthusiasts "Serious Explorations"

you'll need to know if you have 4 wheel abs or just two

Again, this is not for the pulse vacuum hub system. This is for the regular live axel system that comes on the 00.5 and up rangers.

Thank you though for putting the effort in to grab me that.

BUMP!

TRS Magazine - 98-00 Ranger Hub/Bearing Assembly Replacement

Where he used saw blades, I used two screw drivers on either side to pry the hub off. Once you get the hub off, there will be a snap ring holding a small "collar" on the CV axle. Use some snap ring pliers to open up the snap ring then push the CV in towards the axle. It's a lot easier to do it that way then to completely try and remove the snap ring. In the pictures he points at two places where O-rings need to go on the new hubs. If you got new o-rings use them, I reused mine because they were in good condition and I was careful removing them. All in all it's a simple process. It took longer to remove everything to replace the hub than to take out the 3 bolts and pop the new hub in.

Tech library my friend! I found it in there one time then I went to look for it again and I had to search. Now it's bookmarked! If you need any help just ask. I did mine about a month or so ago. It's a lot easier than it looks/sounds.
