You will see how it all comes apart when you do the job. If it's anythng like the fiesta (which I'm sure they are) the bearing sits under the nut that keeps the spring tentioned. You will need spring clamps if you want to change the bearings but if there ok it's not worth the hassel. When you remove the strut the rubber mount just sits on top

The top mount is just the rubber. It just sits on top of the strut. The bearing sits under the nut that keeps the spring from popping off. To change just the rubber mount all you need to do is remove the strut and swap over the new rubber. It's only held in place by the strut design
