    Perhaps someone else will know the exact hub nut size. I unfortunately do not, and they do not list it in the shop manual.

    100 miles - well, you never do know; you just have to have a look at the spindle once the bearing is removed to assess its condition.

    On my 2002 mountaineer with 2wheel drive, the rear axle-hub nut is 36mm.
