What bearing are we talking about here??? The only bearing that should be changed here, this side of the gearbox being removed, is the clutch release bearing that is one of the three parts of the replacement 3 piece clutch kit.
300 Euro for an OEM 3 piece replacement clutch kit (cover assembly, driven plate and release bearing), and labour sounds too low in my opinion. A more realistic price for an OEM clutch kit and labour would be around 400-450 Euro for this car I think.
I'm not too sure on what bearings folks are referring to above. AFAIK, the only bearing that is causing a problem here is the clutch release bearing, which should be replaced with the clutch kit in any event. If there are other bearings gone in the gearbox (and there is no evidence of this from reading the thread, unless I've missed something...), this is a separate issue and you won't be able to tell this until you have the gearbox out...
Meant to say, that price of 400-450 Euro is for an indy fitting an LuK or Valeo clutch... Main dealer, price above given as 610, which sounds steep but normal for a main dealer...
