Hello, I'm Jason. I will do my best to answer your question quickly and accurately using the information you have provided.
I'll first need to know if it's a front or rear bearing
Well, I'll be able to give you estimate for both front and rear
Front bearings, per side will be charged 2.5 hours per side
so for example, if the shop rate is $100/hr, then $250 for labor
The bearing, part number C2S8276 retails for $48.90
what is it ????and is it important to replace??
The wheel bearing allows the drive axles to spin freely in what is known as the suspension "upright", so it essentially keeps the outer axles in place, and is a base for the wheel hub and brake rotor to spin on
I can show you in a diagram if that would help
now, this isn't the exact front suspension setup on your car, but it's very similar. I have indicated where the bearing lives with a red arrow:
still with me?
