    Price to change MK4 wheel bearing?

    Anyone got a rough clue on how much to replace a wheel bearing on a MK4? SXi 1.6 16v if that matters , 4-stud.

    I think it's the rear bearing but not 100% sure, gets louder on right-hand bends and quieter on left-hand bends so I'm guessing it's a passenger side bearing that's gone.

    dont know what labour will be off hand but you cannot replace just the bearing on the mark 4, think there around the 100 mark IIRC

    cost me £75 when one of mine went, as the bearing is the hub mounting too.

    from a scrappy, you can piick them up fairly cheap, i think i paid £25 tops, and takes about 30 mins to change if you are handy and have the tools.

    Ow yeah to find out which bearing it is, jack up the car and spin the wheel. The one with the bearing gone will be noticeable straight away.
