How much does it cost to replace the wheel bearings on a Ford Focus?

I’ve started to hear a humming sound in my Ford Focus. My friend said that it probably needs the wheel bearings replaced, but I don’t have an extended warranty. How much will it cost to switch out the wheel bearings on my Ford Focus?

Answer
Mechanical problems can be pricey to fix. Luckily, replacing the wheel bearings is relatively cheap—costing a total of $215 to $275. You may even be able to save some money if you find the parts yourself and bring them to the repair shop.
Remember to change out faulty wheel bearings as soon as possible. Friction build-ups can put excessive wear and tear on the wheels and ultimately cause more significant damage in the long run.
While it might seem expensive, changing your bearings is a cheaper fix than many other mechanical issues. To help cover these issues in the future, look around for an extended warranty or mechanical breakdown policies.
