You do not have to remove the hub in order to replace the disc brake pads or the rotor.

The job is a difficult one without a press, probably best to take it to a garage, I work in one and wouldn't attempt this job at home!

How do you go about replacing ball bearing front wheel bearings?

It wasn't specified what the model year this is or which "S" series was asked about, but on my 2001 SL1 the ONLY way to replace the front bearings is removing the front wheel bearing assemblies then taking them, and the new bearings, to a machine shop to have the old bearings pressed out and the new bearings pressed in. Then reattach the hub assemblies to the car. The wheels will also need to be realigned after having to unbolt the front struts to remove the bearing assemblies.

How do you replace crankshaft bearings on a ford 3.0 liter engine?

If you have the repair manual for your vehicle, it should cover this procedure. Simply remove the crank, remove the bearings, and lube new ones before re-installing. Be sure to get the bearings in right. There is a little tab on one end of each bearing that lines up with corresponding notch on block where they sit. DO NOT scratch or mar the bearing surface during installation. Be sure bearing is correctly seated. Reassemble and torque to spec.
