Question about Cars & Trucks
I have 2007 Equinox, and needs front bearing replaced, estimate price I was told is $530 would that be reasonable for this type of replacement?
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.

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.

most front wheel bearings are pressed in you half to take the whole control arm off pull out the hub press out the bearing grease the new one and press it in its best to take it to a machine shop do not try pressing it in yourself
