There is a big difference in which one it is. Front or rear? Yes it ie correct to replace the bearing altogether. If it is the rear, simply replace it yourself....the front is diff....only because it is pressed into the steering knuckle, but you could seperate the steering knuckle and take it to a dealer or other shop, have the old bearing pressed out, and new one pressed back in. 800.00 is pure horse poo poo. lol I did my own, as always there is a 1st time for everything. Went smooth as butter and had the satisfaction of knowing I did it myself....

roaring sound comming out from both rear wheel. is the bearing pack in side or is it open bearing. if its open bearing i can simply clean it and apply some wheel bearing grease.

the bearings are sealed you dont repack them. theyre around 80 bucks at a part store. if youve changed brakes before then you should be able to change the bearing

Dealer is full of crap. Take it somewhere else. I did my rears in under and hour for both.
My Sentra Ser had a front go I think it was 225cad and 2 hours labour. I now own a press so I will do my own when the time comes. The bearing for the front was like 8 bucks 26 for a set of 4.

Mountain (MTN5720) 20 Ton Hydraulic Press with Jack # 5720 - Compare prices, reviews, user opinions - Shopper.com
Exactly the same as this except mine is yellow and was free. I got it from a garage that was going out of business along with a portable car lift. I love it. Except it's a pain in the ass if you want to do exhaust work. Has a bunch of cross beams that get in the way of long pipes.
