anyone know how much for a Rear hub assembly W124?

:( :(
 
Without Chassis no these are estimates.
There is 3 different things you may need.

1: Hub flange (wheel bolts go into) £91.56inc vat (most likely)
2: Bearing Kit £105.16 inc vat
3: Hub Carrier £419.48 inc vat

No 2 is the repair kit for No 3
 
If you have to use a gas axe to get the hub flange off then add the cost of a set of parking brake shoes & springs

This is one item it might be appropriate to source as a complete assembly plus half shaft from a breakers yard?

Is this because they broke it getting the wheel bearing out? MB have a special tool for this.
 
i cant remember what exactly they need. Parts from MB came to approx £200. I think the guy at the garage described it as a "rear hub assembly having play". They discovered this when they removed the bearing.

I havnt really got a clue on any of this myself so i've gave the go-ahead for them to fit the genuine merc parts (£200). Their labour is approx £100. Sounds reasonable i think and gets the car back on the road, hopefully without a squeek anymore!!

does a new hub carrier come with the bearing already installed ????????

Yes it does but you can get a 'repair kit' for it that has bearings and other bits to fix it if the actual casing is ok.
 
hmmm, maybe all that is needed is the repair kit...... but i dont know for sure, so i'll just ahve to trust the garage's judgement - the labour they are charging is very reasonable and i doubt could be much less whatever they are fitting.

Ask garage to list the Merc part numbers used and cost, as I am sure we would all be interested in the conclusion to this particular saga.

i'll ask them for a photocpy of their invoice for the parts from the dealer for my service history (to proove genuine MB OEM parts were used) so i should get the part numbers from that. hopefully they will have no probs letting me have this.
 
No 5 is the hub carrier
No 11 is the flange
No 17 is the repair kit

Hi

turned out they needed the flange and the repair kit (along with 2 'seals' - (the flange was badly worn) - they reckon causing the play seen at MOT time (tightening the bolt 'cured' the play but caused the squeel when the car is under load.

all fixed now, but wasnt cheap! :( the labour was reasonable but the cost of parts was pretty high but atleast i have the genuine MB parts fitted.
