Cost to replace wheel bearings on 1997 ford aspire

Can anyone give me an estimated cost to replace the wheel bearings (front and rear) on my 1997 ford aspire? I am a college student (female), and I don't want to have to pay way more than what the average price is. I am thinking it should cost about 150.00, parts and labor. Am I right?

I was once charged for 350.00 on the same car to replace the car alternator. I don't intend on paying anything close to that.

Cost replace wheel bearings

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.

I have to replace my right rear wheel seal/bearing on my 2002 Chevy Tahoe and am curious about how much it is/should cost me.

Hello Richard, the bearing and seal kit will run you about $75, i recommend using a Timken bearing over the AC Delco. Two hours labor to install is the norm for most shops @ $85- $95 per hour. Dealer rates will be higher. Estimated repair cost $265.00.
I hope this helps.

What is the cost to replace wheel bearings on the 2004 Ford Escape?

Estimate $250 including parts and labor for replacement of the hub and bearing assembly (most shops will not just replace the bearing because it takes longer).

1997 Buick LeSabre has squeak noise coming from right front.

More likely this is a wheel bearing or CV joint than suspension components.

One good indication is if, when your making a right turn or accelerating, there is a shudder or shaking in the steering wheel then its likely a wheel bearing.

Another good indicator can be found when you jack up the suspicious wheel. Put one hand on the top of the wheel and one on the bottom and pull back and forth. If the wheel makes a clunking noise and moves in either direction, then wheel bearing is shot.

Noises from the front wheels.

Sounds like maybe a wheel bearing on it's way out, but should be easy for mechanic to pinpoint, and give estimate. Depending on what system, bearing required, part runs from $90-$180, and would estimate an hour, to hour and a half, to change it. If you try ( ) it will ask your zip code & info & give you a price range for your particular area.

Front wheel bearings

THe tire size is very important.
Originally ford aspire had 155 70 r 13.
It is impossible to find the same size in USA.
If you put a bigger tire...then you brake the wheel bearing.
My 2 cents

2002 ford Ranger 3.0 v6 (auto) rear end noise when accelerating on curves.

Remove the drums and check your rear brakes. If okay, you may try testing a couple different tires in the rear. Belts separating and flat spots show worse at higher speeds.
It could be bearings if truck is used alot while loaded. Remember 1/4 ton is only 500lbs. High miles, hard driving, or if it was wrecked in rear could all cause these smptoms.
