How much should a left rear wheel bearing cost to replace at the dealer ? $900.00

The dealer charged me $900, i would like to know how it could be so much labor. how much time does the book call for? the outter bearing was $156, $99 dianostic fee. The rest was labor. On top of that they charged me $525 , for a ABC right front valve repair kit $80.00, about $40.00 for fluid, the rest was labor. the parts total was about $300. 1,100 for labor is this right? and the car still has the roar, but not no where near as loud, i going to take it back, but i just wanted to know if the labor rate seemed correct. BTW the car is a 2001 s600.

to do the rear wheel bearing is an extensive job. labor wise it is about 6-8 hours. you have to remove the rear rotors and parking brake assembly, use a slide hammer and pull out the wheel hub, then remove the entire knuckle assembly and then press out the wheel bearing assembly and then press in the new one and reassemble everything. its an expensive job.

thanks for your input, my car still has a groan does that mean that my abc system needs to be blead? they did not put on the rodeo test after repairing leak from front valve block uesd a repair kit,which works fine. also is it wise to only change only the outter bearing?

there is only one bearing back there. it is a sealed roller bearing. also what repair kit did the dealer use because I have never heard of a repair kit for the valve block. if it leaks, you replace it. also after any ABC repair, the rodeo test must be performed to make sure the system does not leak and to bleed the system.
