    How much to replace wheel bearing??

    Hi all, my car needs to have one of the front wheel bearings replaced, how much am i looking at to have this done?

    Also one of the front lights has a tiny hole in it so that would need replacing, how much do single headlights usualy cost?

    Im also going to book it in for a service and was wondering how much an average service costs for a car with 137k miles on it, its already had oil chance and a new filter fitted a few miles ago.

    So probobly just needs pads i think...

    Wheel bearing a lot I would guess at but don't know I'm afraid. Haldex oil and filter might need doing and would do the brake fluid aswell.

    Finally back on the road, have a HUGE list of mods and things to do now!

    I had one bearing done on the S4 before & it cost 40 for the bearing from a main dealer & another 20 from a mate of mine to do it. surprisingly easy to do, only an hour or so to do it.

    I'll guess the main stealers will charge around the 200 for that then...
    ...... Now this one's MUCH better!...

    Not a bad price, i would get them to check the haldex oil and filter as well. Wheel bearings are easy to replace on the S3 witht the correct tools.
