    Hey everyone, I’m wanting to get a drivers side rear wheel bearing replaced on my ve omega, it started as a light humming noise about 3 months ago and now sounds really bad at around 80kms/ hour, the swerving at speed test confirmed it, the noise stopped and started, the noise is also appearing slightly at low speeds, around 20kms/hr. I’m planning to take it to a Holden dealer to have it replaced, I know I’ll probably get ripped off, but I thought if the wheel bearing is replaced and then plays up again I’ll have some sort of warranty/ recourse with a Holden dealer than what I would with a normal mechanic, as I don’t know any good privately owned mechanics near where I live. My question is how much should a wheel bearing cost plus allowing for generous labour cost

    Rear bearing isn't a cheap exercise on ve if going with a genuine unit. Hub assembly needs to be removed from the car so the hub and bearing assembly can be pressed out then the bearing itself pressed from the hub and vice versa with assembly. So expect Holden to charge at least $500 supply and fit

    I paid about $350 ten years ago, and the bearing is still good :)
    Not sure about the inflation rate since then.
