So my left rear wheel bearing needs to be replaced. Mechanic used automotive stethoscope and found the problem. Car has less than 45k so I'm disappointed but it has to be done.

I want to replace the whole hub and bearing as a unit because it's less work that way. Does anyone know part(s) numbers for this? Thank you.

I thought you know everything :crying:
His philosophy is similar to this one:

Give a man a fish he eats for a day, teach a man to fish he eats for life.
He is teaching you how to solve the problem for yourself, Sarge knows all, even what you need to know. Bow at the feet of the Sensi!

I don't find this helpful at all.

I was told it's almost an all day job. I would have to drop off the car and pick up when it's ready.

The guy in the video took 40 to do the job and he removes the whole wheel support, a good garage will take 1.5h

This guy takes 45m without removing the whole wheel support

I really can't see why they charge $723
