    I need a recommendation for a indy shop to get the front bearing done on a 2014 plug-in 2014. Dealership quoted me $1000. Looking for someone who can do it right. Seems like a complicated repair reading up on here.

    Thanks.

    You can easily replace the wheel hub. The bearing is inside. I did one on an old Camry a while ago.

    One option down the way a bit from you is Mac's service center in Ashland.

    seems a lot more involved, it have to be removed for the knuckle or something.

    Hi ray, do you have any experience with this shop? Your location shows that you are from CA.

    I spent 6 years living in the greater Richmond area;).

    While I have no personal experience with them, some members here have used them.

    @wjtracy may know of one in Fredericksburg that might be a good one as well.

    Hope that helps(y).

    We do not seem to have too many special places to go for service except for standard repair shops. One member @PurcellvillePinball in your area talked about getting his work done at Progressive Automotive in Hamilton.

    PS- you may want to call Toyota USA to see if they could cover as that is a strange repair
