Too bad I am not at work I could call on a price for a bearing. To be honest that is not too bad of a price on a bearing installed. Most Jag parts need to be purchased from Jag. A typical price for a sealed hub bearing unit is about $140 retail for a chevy corsica(just did 2 on one on monday) to about $300-400 on a ford super duty. and that is not including labor. You need air tools, a torque wrench and lock tight thread locker for this job. And something to remove any corrosion from mounting surfaces
1. jack up car,take wheel off.
2. remove brake caliper
3.remove rotor
4.remove whats holding bearing on. Either one big nut on outside or three to four bolts that hold it to the knukle.
this is how most cars are now,if its rear wheel drive its a peice of cake ,fwd is a little more difficult.

Humming noise coming from vehicle over 30mph

At 100,000 miles, you are driving on bad wheel bearings. They are not too bad to replace, it is a wheel bearing assembly. Bolts on . You will need to remove the spindle nuts, the brakes and rotors, and unplug your abs cable from under the hood. It should take about 1 hour per side if you haven't done it before, and the bearings should be around $120.00 each.

I am currently deployed to afghan, and my wife took our envoy in to get new tires and new shocks put in, but there was still a noise coming from the front, the mechanic said it was the bearings, what...

He's probably talking about the wheel bearings located in the front hubs. They can wear out over time and cause a humming sound as well as vibration. Any brake shop will look at the truck for a free brake inspection. If they determine it's just a wheel bearing, it shouldn't be a big ticket job.

My ABS brake light is on and the right front tire feels like its jumping.

i can help you with this, i have a 06 chevy equinox, that has this problem, i hope that you still have a warrenty, and not an extended one, abs light came on brake feels like it is grinding on the pedal, this is caused by the wheel bearings, i took mine in and the dealer put it on there computer, it said that my front left wheel bearing was bad, dealer replaced it, it still does it.
if you do still have a warrenty, have the dealer change all wheel bearings.

Coilapse of left front wheel suspension, 2006 Jeep Compass

Photograph everything and find exactly what came apart. Likely the brake hose was torn out when it came apart so that's secondary damage. When replacing a bearing hub, it's necessary to remove brake assembly and are working in the area where you have the problem but without seeing exacacly what happened, I can't think of anything further to tell you. Get an outside opinion on the cause from someone who can actually look it over.
Glad that did not happen while going down the road!!

How do I replace the front wheel bearings on a Mazda 626 1998

The front bearings on a mazda 626 are sealed and you must remove the entire hub assembly to have a shop or dealer install the bearings. The hardest part is you need to remove the center axel nut and it is very tight and is called a stake nut. If you do not have a fairly good amout of skill at repairs, this is one job that is safest left to the pros. Just one missed step can create more damage than you could beleive.

Keeps chewing wheel bearings

I'm not familiar with the style of this rear bearing, there are 3 basic designs that are generally used. The single most important thing to consider when installing any of them is preload torque. Obviously the bearing must be properly lubricated and protected with new seals when installed, but the whole job comes down to how tight that big gland nut is when you finish the job. Because the Festiva is really a Mazda, I would cross check the final installation torque of that nut between different spec sheets and see if some answers can be found there.
