Hi, looking for advise on how to go about a bad rear wheel bearing on a vc 2008 limited... Is this a dealer job? Or any mechanic will do? Dealer quoted $700+, is this a fair price?
Thanks for your help

IMO, NO! I'd call around and get some estimates. Maybe the dealer has you down for a complete brake service, or some other service, as part of this quote.

Last month had 2 bad rear wheel bearings replaced on my 2007 VC for $950 at independent garage. Yesterday dealer advised me that they'd be covered under the power train warranty and to contact corporate to file a claim.

After market price for a premium Hub assembly is $130. So 2 hours and that's being generous for each side at $100 an hour. So $475 for each side is really steep. They must have marked up the price of the part big time.

Dont forget that your back rotors incorporate the E-brake which are little drums inside the rotor.

I had to replace my left side and, of course when they removed the drums, my ebrake shoes fell apart, 350 $ job turned into a 975$ job.

Ouch !!!!!!

LOL

I just did that last year 350 up to 900$ (Bearing, then brakes for rears), now I have both Bearings gone AGAIN!!!!!!! Grrrrr :-(

I will try this myself this time. Anybody else have issues with Alignment, and now it seems to go through wheel bearings, dammit!!!!!!!!

2WD is easier than 4WD.. either way, brake parts to deal with, and then getting hub assembly seperated from spindle after removal of the 4 bolt.

ABS sensors (4wd) is posted at $158 each, and 2.1hr labor.. then you have to hope the suspension parts aint rusted,, I had to take 1 apart till I was able to move carrier enough to get axle out to be able to swap speed sensor ring.

Update on my VC Wheel bearings change


They come off real easy, (Maybe its because I had the E-Brakes done with that one bearing about 1.5 yrs ago)
You don't have to touch the e-brake shoes and springs, now looking for a torque on the axle nuts.
Anybody have a rough idea ? best I could find online is 202 Ft/Lbs


The breakdown
1- remove wheel
2- Remove caliper
3- Remove caliper support braket
4- Undo Axle nut (if you don't have a impact gun, do it before you remove the wheel through the centre cap removed)
5- 4 bolts from the rear and your bearing hub pops off.
6- Installation is exact reverse.
7- Torque for Axle nut ????

mine came apart easy enough using the holes for jack screws to get drum off. I left the abs sensor where it was because the new one did not come with one (hope that was right. my question is do i leave the black plastic ring on the bearing or remove it
