Hi,Its probably a 1 or 2 hour job so depends what the labour rate is.

I have a brand new boxed proper Alfa bearing in my garage I was going to put on ebay, make me an offer for it if your interested, I'm in Cardiff if you want to collect it

last time i took my car to a dealer for a front wheel bearing change it cost about 320 including a new ABS Sensor as it broke during the removal. i would buy a second hand front hub with a good bearing and abs sensor included. i done this 2 weeks ago and it only cost 30 plus delivery from Autolusso. then just give it to a local garage to fit if your not handy with the spanners. it took me a few hours to fit myself but saved me money in the end!

P.S you will need to have a full wheel alignment afterwards.

150-200 including parts and labour I think. Just had both my fronts done as they were making a very nasty noise indeed.

A second hand bearing and upright is cheaper, yes, but you have no guarantee on how good the bearing is and how long until it will go again - I went for new bearings for peace of mind, and to save potential extra cost down the line.
