The hub assembly looks like it is built solid. Make sure you read the small print and select the right one for your application.

Soak the hub bolts with penetrating oil.
Loosen the axle nut.
Remove the lug nuts and wheel.
Remove the caliper and roter.
Disconnect the anti-lock sensor under the hood.
Press the axle partially from the hub to allow clearance for removing the 3 hub bolts.
Remove the hub bolts (mine were bears).
Install new hub and put things back together.

Not too difficult except for the really tight hub bolts.

Will NOT fit a 2002 Ford explorer

Will not fit a 2002 Ford Explorer. This is a larger hub bearing. It will fit an older Explorer 1998 or so.

        This was an easy process to place order and pick up product at store. Price was competitive with website ordering but access to part since it was in stock. 3 year warranty.

                    This hub assembly was not even close to the original. The bearing housing diameter was a full 1/2 inch larger. Make sure that you measure the diameter of the wheel bearing housing before trying to install the new assembly. Ford used several venders when they built these "Lemons". If you have one get rid of it as soon as you can. These 2002 junks are money pits !!

                                  With reference to your inquiry on the Moog Front Wheel Hub Assembly -part# 515052, you can just replace one side hub assembly on your 2002 Ford Explorer if the other side is good. However, it is better to check if there is any signs of bad symptoms on the other side wheel hub in order to avoid intermittence.

                                  Yes, you need to replace the nut replace the nut when you replace hub assembly because repeated use of a used nut could over-fatigue the fastener.

                                  Do a search on YouTube for videos on how to replace front wheel bearing hub assembly. From what I've watched, it appears to be any where between 2-4 hours in the driveway. . . Easier and quicker on a lift with air tools, but plenty do-able in the driveway too.

                                  For help with your project, I recommend purchasing a Haynes repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts.
