Re: Cost of Replacing Wheel Bearings? (2k2 GTI 1.8T)

The dealer quoted me just under $400 for one front wheel bearing. I got it done at a local shop for $160 parts and labour.

how do you know if they are on their way out? what are some signs?

I had a loud grinding noise that I thought was the tranny.

Yup, I had loud grinding when I turn the wheel at lower speeds. At higher speeds, the sound seems to disappear.

Re: Cost of Replacing Wheel Bearings? (iamfob)

I do have a 2002 GTI. However my car is lowered and will probably be denied a warranty claim. Hence the reason I am trying to get an estimate on how much it would cost to have the job done at a private garage. Would you happen to know any dealers that would still allow me to claim warranty w/ modified suspension?
