My friends Passat is making a roaring sound which, when was confirmed, turned out to be the wheel bearings. Now, I have done break jobs, suspensions, normal maint., but I know I dont want to be liable for bearings.

Does anyone know how much it would be to get them put in? I am just curious since my sisters car might need them as well. Thanks

I'll go out and dig through my service reports. What does the bearing sound like when it goes bad? I had (and still have) a grinding noise that I think is coming from the front passenger side wheel. It may be coming from more toward the center of the car, I can't tell. It started when my stealership rotated the tires. I've checked the brakes and can't find anything there. Anyway, I asked my dealer to fix it. They told me they couldn't reproduce the sound (even though it ocurrs all the time) and that it was probably the bearing. :crazy:

It was under warranty so they replaced it to no avail. I'll check what the charges would have been though.

I have the same problem, was this ever resolved? Already tried rotating tires and replacing wheel bearing as well. Nothing.

If you have info on a fix, please let us know. Thanks.

edit: btw, it cost me $150 to replace bearing on one side at an indy shop if anyone cares.
