Question 1997 Mercury Sable - wheel bearings

I'm pretty much a novice at car repair but I do try to fix what I can.

Two questions:

1) What is the size of the bearing lock nut on the 97 mercury sable?
I have a 1-1/8" deep socket but it is larger than that.

2) Are the wheel bearings replaceable? If yes, how?

I have the haynes manual but it is no help in this area.

the axle nut could be 30mm 32mm or 36mm for the 30mm try 1 3/16 and 32mm try 1 1/4 and 36mm try 1 5/16 as for the bearings they are replaceable by a hub assembly or maybe it can be pressed apart to replace the bearings most machine shops can do this pressing part

without seeing or hearing your problem all i can do is offer advice on what to check
