Just had my xtrail at garage and have been told the wheel bearings both front and one back need changed along with both front and back drop linkage and both break discs and pads on back need replaced. Also told one of the back hubs might need done.

I'm not really clued up on cars and was wondering if anybody knew a rough cost for work to be carried out and if it's a big operation?

Many thanks

The bearings are a fairly labour intensive operation. The hubs need removing and the bearings need removed and installed on a press. And on an 03 plate car all the assorted bolts and fittings have been in place for 10 years + and will be quite happy to stay there, especially the rear pivot bolt which will be rusted solid.

The drop links are not difficult, and the parts are cheap. At worst the old ones need cut off instead of unbolting.

Pads and discs are not difficult, although you may discover that the brake wear is due to seized calipers which may also need replacing.

As for a total price... no idea! I do all my own work so am not up to speed with current garage rates.
