Its a real easy job if you have access to a press to remove and fit the bearings.

Slacken wheel nuts, choke front wheels and release handbrake, jack up rear of car and support on stands, remove hub nut metal cap, undo hub nut and remove the brake drum, remove circlip and press out old bearing, press in new bearing and install new circlip. Re-assemble.

...or if you don't fancy the hassle, I got a rear wheel bearing replaced at a small local garage for 65. Although Ford would probably charge you 4x that.
