    Question Cost of replacing a wheel bearing?

    Hi all,

    My car's at the local audi independent today as I booked it in to investigate a strange noise it was making. Turns out it's a wheel bearing that needs replacing, which I thought wasn't too bad.

    I've been quote about 135 to fix it, which sounds like a lot to me. That's 65 for a genuine VAG wheel bearing and 1.5 hours labour. Anyone have any thoughts on whether that's reasonable?

    Cheers

    Just found the following which is quite a useful guide ...

    http://www.audi-specialists.co.uk/service.htm

    ... obviously it's only one place, but gives a rough idea of how much things cost.

    Shows a front wheel bearing as £120 + VAT, which is more than I've been quoted, so made me happy!
