Recommended Posts

I need to change my front wheel bearings and could do with some advice, I basically need to know how easy they are to do, are the any special tools required and do I need a press? or can they be done by hand? don't really want to pay someone to do them if I can do them myself. :unsure:

I've had a knocking noise for about 3 weeks, i've had ball joints, wish bone, brakes, drop links, anti roll bars, bushers, shocks, and tyres all checked and there all fine, now it's starting to whine a bit so thats why i'm guessing bearings (if not then at least there done). Why do you think yours need doing are they just whining or have you had a knock aswell?

Just a rough idea £65 each for bearings from my local parts stockist, and i guess about 2 hours work at a garage about £40 per hour so I reckon about £210ish. I'm going to book mine in next week so will let you know exactly how much but different garages charge different prices for labour.

I'm getting n/s front done Tuesday, o/s is ok it's going to cost me £160 all in, i'm 99% convinced thats the problem although it's unusual for a bearing to knock!

Been in and had the bearing replaced today, knocking all gone, Happy Days.

Wandering if you can help me. Im getting a very slight knocking noise when going over very small bumps. Its almost like i can feel the knocking under my peddle so its definaltely drivers side. Garage has checked all suspension brakes e.t.c. Was this the same symptoms you were getting ?

Thanks

£65 for a bearing!!! ur having a laugh..... try find the number of the bearing and ask a bearing stockist i am sure it will be a lot cheaper

Thats how much the part is from lexus, mine totaled to over £100 as replace all the seals, nuts, clips etc, but it is smooth now :)

the seal fair enough, but the basic cost for the bearing appears to be expensive in relation to general prices of bearings from a bearing stockist - if anyone has the number of the bearing or even the size i would like to find out the cost - i wouldnt be surprised if its less than half the cost.

But that is the toyota PN not the bearing number..

Didn't know bearings had numbers, but I suppose Toyota buy them in and add their own part number (and fat markup) to them.

exactly! thats why 65 is a fortune for a bearing - its a pity that someone doesnt have the bearing number as it takes about 1 minute to get a price which would be interesting to see.

on the bearing race there will be a number etched in or it will be on the bearing seal, even if toyota buy them in there should be a number of some sorts or it.

At least with the above data people stand a better chance of finding one for less. GS and early LS owners can use aftermarket bearings for Supras if they can find them.

i tried the base number as that should come up also with a result but nothing- but nachi have been known to make some strange sized limited supply bearings.

I am replacing my front wheel bearings in Lexus dealer in Glasgow, 280 pounds for each wheels. I had to do 2 sides. Hope everything will be fine after the cost.
