    Default Wheel Bearing Rear expensive job?

    Vehicle is 54 plate Vectra Diesel.

    Noticed a slight humming noise coming from the rear and im pretty sure its one of the bearings gone as had simular noise on my renault a while back.

    Has anyone else had this problem? Is it a big job to do? Is it expensive?

    Thanks Ash

    If it is the Bearing/hub as there one sealed unit, then about £70 from ebay and £40 (1 hours labour) for your local garage to fit.

    I enquired for a price from Vauxhall they qouted £185+vat + £60 labour.
    After some ringing around a mate can get me a new one for £65 and he will fit for free so not bad at all.
