What is the price for replacing the front left wishbone?


Recommended Posts

Greetings, everyone.
The make and model of my automobile is a Mercedes E-Class W211 E280. Over the last week, I have noticed a persistent squeaking sound when driving and using the steering.

I visited the technician today and, after inspection, he informed me that the front left wishbone requires attention.

The technician has provided a price for the following: - A wishbone from a reputable brand is £125 - The labour cost is £65, including VAT.

Is this pricing considered reasonable?

Thank you.

According to him, the less expensive option costs £95, while the higher quality brand costs £125. Additionally, you may verify the MOT history starting from January.
I suspected that the problem may be related to the wheel bearing or the end ball joint.

Choose a reputable brand. Which brand is considered the best brand?

Each of mine cost 500€, so it seems like a great deal. Presuming that the component is really of high quality.

Have you experimented with MB?

If the ball joints are removable, there should be no significant issue. Regrettably, the ball joints on my control arms cannot be removed, making the remedy evident but expensive.

It is advisable to get the ball joints from MB.

I have used Lemforder and TRW hub ball joints, both of which are original equipment manufacturer (OEM) providers. There is no need to spend excessive amounts of money on an aesthetically pleasing container. The ball joint on the w211 control arm is not detachable; the whole arm must be replaced. The middle thrust arm has a detachable tiny ball joint that links to the arb link arm.
