It would depend on where you live and what type of shop is doing the work, but yes that is probably a fair price.
You have to remove the bearing assembly from the axle so labor would be more than an hour, and the part cost is $200 or more.

SOURCE: Need wheel bearing replacement

unfortunately your bearing assembly is a sealed unit and you have to purchase it as a complete part. they do have a way to change out the bearing at a shop, however the labor cost involved would most certainly be alot more than a replacement it's self. I have come across this problem many times and it's not as easy to switch them out as you have been told. i hope this helps. (note) to repalce them on your vehicle if you don't do the work yourself have a small shop do it not a dealer shop. the cost will be alot less. the labor time should be no more than 2 hrs. that is roughly about no more than 120- 150 dollars for the labor . if the place you take it to quotes you way more than that take it somewhere else... good luck please rate this

SOURCE: Replacing front wheel bearings

It isn't a particularly hard job but there are a few techniques that you need to know.
I wouldn't recommend you do it yourself but I would recommend you do it under supervision of someone who knows their stuff.
Retensioning the bearings correctly is extremely important.

SOURCE: ford festiva front wheel bearing worn out

I do have the manual and there are several on eBay all the time for Festivas, because I check there often for Festiva parts. They are often sold for about $20-$25 for the complete manual. You might want to try that. I have the manuals for Festiva, but I don't have a scanner, but I do have a digital camera that I could use to photograph it. I don't know if I can get your email address so that I can send the photos of the pages to you. Let me know.

How to replace front hub & bearings


You were probably told that because when the wheel bearings go out, a lot of people and shops will just replace the hubs, either new or from a salvage yard, with the bearings already installed (pressed into the hubs). Some models, I think, may not even sell the bearings separate. But since you can buy the bearings alone, that may be the best route for you. That, or the salvage hubs route. If you go with new bearings, you can take off the hubs yourself, and take them with the new bearings to a shop to have them pressed in for a nominal fee. It will save you some serious labor repair costs.
Good luck.

I took my car for its MOT and it failed! Need two shock absorbers because there is an oil leak! also need a wheel bearing? They quoted me 4oo pounds to do repairs. Is this a fair price?


If you need to replace the spares with the original spares then the cost is fair which is inclusive of all service charges.
Now the estimation of the charges are based on your vehicle condition and is not commendable but you can also buy the shocks or get a reconditioned one for a lower price. Also the wheel bearing can be purchased directly at a lower cost from the bearing dealership for the same number /type to be replaced by you.
This will work out cheaper if you can DIY.

Left wheel bearing replaced no alignment done.


the car does not need to be aligned after a wheel bearing replacement. it is a good idea to get this done every 6 months depending on driving habits though. good maintenance.

Is a ball bearing the same as a wheel bearing hub assy , I took my 2001 Dodge Dakota to a repair shop he replaced the front wheel bearing hub assy, when I took my truck home it started making a popping...


????? This vehicle should be equiped with tapered roller bearings. Ball bearinga are out dated and not used since the 60's. No on the hub assembly, The brgs go into the hub and are replaceable as a seperate part.. $ 500.00? This is a mechanic? Do this, jack up the front end of the vehicle and rotate the wheel to determine if there is a proble. Not ant rough or hanging up of ythe wheel while turning it. Then put one hannd on the top and one on the bottom and push and pull. You are now checking for loose bbearings. Any looseness or roughness is a call to have the wheel and hubs pulled and inspected. 500.00? He is trying to get rid of you by quoting an outrages price. If you accept the estimate he is all the more happier for ripping you off. Take it to another shop and say no more than " Please chk the front end and wheel brgs. DSay no more than that and leaave them to their work. They will call you when they need you. Ask for the old parts if you have them replace or repair.. My estimate. 20 to 30.00 in parts and shop time 1.5 hrs. A reputable shop will show you where,why,and how.the process works..

Ask them why it wasn't a problem before the work that they did in that area, and if it normally needs replacement because of bearing work done, then why wasn't it done, and why should you pay the labor to pull everything apart again? Call your local parts store or dealer for price on part, so you know what they're charging you for labor. If it's 2 wheel drive, (repairpal.com) gives an estimate of about $75-$100 for labor & $50-$75 for parts.? Something not right here! Have you dealt with these guys before?

Wheel bearings, front & rear struts


In my humble opinion, I would say this is not normal wear and tear. If it were me I would get a 2nd opinion. I have been driving for over 40 years and I do not remember the last time I had to replace a wheel bearing. I'm not saying it can't happen but another opinion would be worth the nominal cost.

And if the answer is a strong "it's not needed" I would find another mechanic than the one that gave you the estimate

Hope this helps Loringh
