Default 4WD Ignis bearing problem

Hi,
My wife has a 05 Ignis, 4WD.
As she was driving it she noticed a regular thrumming noise, on investigation it turned out to be the bearing on the rear drive shaft.
We enquired with the local Suzuki dealer here in Dublin and they had never worked on a 4WD Ignis before and were quoting astronomical prices, without really knowing of the procedure.
I wanted to pick everyones brains about this.
Is it a massive job.
Is the 4WD system similar to other Suzuki models?
How long should it take and how much should it cost?
Is this a main dealer job only or should most mechanics be able to do the work?
Thanks in advance.

More info is needed. Is it the front or rear of shaft? Or is this bearing in a component at the end of the shaft front or rear end?

Is the bearing within these diagrams?;

I bet that if ciderman's question was about a lost rodio code, he would have been back to see the answer every day!

I find it strange, how people with a serious safety issue don't really care much unless the radio is faulty!

Just spotted this post,
I am just about to attempt to change the rear wheel bearings on my 2005 1.3 Ignis 2WD!
I don't have a manual and I have struggled to find much info about the job / procedure on the internet. But hopefully these pics of the more involved 4WD system should help.
Thanks

I have already posted info and pics on the 2WD rear wheel bearing replacement here in another thread a while back - http://www.suzuki-forums.com/suzuki-...formation.html

Sorry about the long delay there.
It happened that there was some uncertainty about the bearing issue, some misinformation about the problems and so on.

Turns out it is actually a slightly bent half shaft to the rear passenger side and it is now my proud duty to either find a full rear axle for the 4x4 Ignis (rare as hens teeth in Ireland), buy a half shaft for the car from Suzuki (very expensive) or just get a 2wd rear axle from a breakers and have that bolted on instead (cheap and readily available but wifey says no!).

So, I'm going to get onto the various breakers around Dublin, also Traynors in Ulster, see what's what, and what's affordable.

Again, I appreciate the help, I have read responses and apologise for the delay.

Understand, I own an 04 Scenic II, I have my own cross to bear!

I had to get a whole replacement axle for the 4 grip in from the UK, the model was never officially sold in Ireland.
Getting it fitted on Monday.
Fingers crossed it'll all go to plan!

You will have to stop driving like a dick where there is cobble stones and curbs!

I know these things from personal experience!

It started not long after we bought it, the guy refused to accept liability so we lived with it until we couldn't live with it anymore. So, no dick driving here!
