Front Wheel bearing replacement on 560SEC

Hi guys,

I was quoted this morning by an independent mercedes shop a price of $400.00 to replace both front wheel bearings on my 1990 560SEC..., does this price sound right or high ?

I was surprised myself...I thought it was high.

RE: Front Wheel bearing replacement on 560SEC

Hi Kevin,

One of our sponsors: German Star lists the F/W. Bearing kit for $40. That price is probably for one side only. The Performance Products F/bearing kit is similarly priced.

I used to change those myself at the shop. It is kind of time consuming to do, figuring wheel, brake caliper, front hub, remove both inner & outer bearing races from each hub, install the new races, clean the two hubs, pack the replacement bearings with grease....... get everything back together & adjusted correctly.
I wouldn't want to do so today, without a proper working space & air, etc.

Typically we spend about an hours labor ($60-$100/hour) plus parts, just to replace the front brake pads...which is a lot less involved labor-wise. Given that reference, and speaking in round numbers $350-$400 seems reasonable in todays MB service marketplace.

My 2 cents, MBL
