You should be able to slide the retainer off the nut. If there is no cotter pin there may be some type of retainer to keep the nut from backing off. I would suggest picking up a repair manual.
I wanna go fast!!!!!

Default RE: Wheel Bearing Removal - 1999 GT

This year Mustang GT does not use a castle nut and cotter pin. Haynes and other automotive books do not provide information for the type of setup. What actually is designed is a multiple nut configuration with what appears to be a C channel wrapped around the outage edge of the Nut(s). The channel actual holds the nuts together as one unit. To remove the arrangement you need a 36mm socket and a lot of muscle. Once you pull the nut, the whole bearing/hub assembles pulls off...it is one non serviceable unit. Cost about $55-$80 depending on the brand. When you put the unit back on, Ford says to torque it to 258 ft-lbs.
