i would reckon the best part of 80 - 100 at an independant garage.

The bearing costs about 100 but it is easy and quick to fit

parts or parts and labour? looking on ebay it looks like the bearing comes as a hub assembly and can be had for about £50 delivered (see link). plus fitting at a garage, still reckon £80-£100.

Had quotes in Altrincham ranging from 80-235 quid, how can the price vary to that extent

I can assure you you will not get a rear wheel bearing for a mk 3 mondeo for aroung 17. I paid for my daughters 02 registered car last week 68 but they are available on ebay for 50 but I wanted to do it that day. Pretty straight forward job as long as you can get the tork 50 bolts undo ok. I had one awkward one that I had to take the head off with an angle grinder and replace with a new bolt. Brian

i agree. if u check this link which shows u how to replace the wheel bearing u will see that it comprises of the entire hub complete with wheel studs. i cannot see anyone purchasing this for that kind of money unless it fell off the back of a lorry!

Got a new hub from AtoZcarpart for £50. Prices range though from high 40's to 160. Maake sure you get one with bolts included (inc threadlock). 1 Hour labour £30 for a mobile guy. Plus tip - that's all in for under a ton for me. £65 min labour if main dealer. Ford hub c£200. VAT too. Looking at c £300 min I recon in that case. You pay and take your choice. Job is straight forward other than getting the Torx off - bold heads often rusted in, as someone already noted. No need to disconnect handbrake cable - just hang the calliper.
