are they the same on most cars? is it a case of undoing the hub nut and getting it out or do you have to remove the drum too?

not sure if they are all the same but the drum has to come out and you will need to knock out old outer races and press in the new races

Most small hatchbacks of similar age will be roughly the same, beauty of the ford rear bearings is you can re-tighten them as much as you want, pop the drum off, take the bearings out, knock the rear grease seal off, tap the bearing seats out, tap new ones in with a socket or bearing tool, grease the bearings, put them in, then tap in the grease seal in, refit and jobs done
