Need help/guide with Front wheel hub assembly

Hello everyone!

So my bearings **** the bed on the front left side and I could use some help on how to replace the assembly. I am still pretty new to DIY stuff I have done breaks etc but unfortunately I do not have my Haynes manual right now and I always go by that.

It comes as an assembly so I am assuming everything is packed in, nothing needs to be pressed? Just take the wheel, caliper and bracket, unplug abs sensors. take the spindle nut off, pull the rotor then take off the 3 knuckle bolts and it pulls off?? then reverse? Do I need to grease the bearing inside or anything??

I have a 2001 ford ranger v6 4.0 sohc 4x4 (front and rear ABS sensors) and just bought this

Buy Moog Front Wheel Hub Assembly 515013 at Advance Auto Parts

If anyone could give me a guide or tell me some steps on how to do this I would really appreciate it. Also if possible torque specs on the bolts.

You've pretty much got it there... that's about all there is to it. I don't have the torque specs handy here but I can check my manual tomorrow if no one responds by then!

So I got everything off and to the hub, very easy and straight forward but unfortunately the hub is seized and so rusted and I can't pull it off. I have tried PB blaster + torch, a slide hammer etc.. it will not budge.

Any suggestions?

Is the hub seized to the spindle or the axle seized into the hub?

I normally hit the unit bearing with a BFH and it falls out.

I sometimes have to put the wheel on and kick the wheel to loosen it.
