Worn front bearings (how much to fix)

Seems that the front left bearings on my 2006 C230 Sport are worn. Any idea how much a job like this will cost?

What is your mileage - and what has convinced you that the bearings are shot?

Was this advice from a workshop? If not who?

I've no idea about the labor rates in Maryland, so why not pick up the phone and ask (a) your nearest MB dealership and (b) a respected independant shop in your area for a job quotation.

Normally, folks renew both left & right front wheel bearings at the same time. If one side has worn out, the other side will not be far behind.
