    Wheel Bearing

    need a new bearing for my car, (keeps making a loud groaning noise when i turn left)

    Vauxhall recon its the front right wheel but say i need an entire hub and are quoting me £168 (not including labour) for it.
    Spoke to a few other garages and they recon u only need a hub for the back wheels and its only the bearing that needs to be replaced.

    ne1 had nething similar?

    Yeah mate, had 2 of mine go recently, if urs is a 4 stud vxl quoted me approx £70-80, but as mine is 5 stud, as its got traction control and ABS, it's a sealed hub, so they quoted me £144 +VAT, but my mate owns a garage so he got it through the vxl trade club for £102.
    Ur better off getting a mate from a garage to fit it, and chucking him 20-30 quid if u can.

    hope this helps.

    Didn't know ABS came with 4 studs, but yeah mate, ABS means it's a sealed unit, so it's more exspensive!! sorry mate.
