Depends on what you class as big I guess. If you're paying someone to do it then I'd imagine fairly expensive. I've never done any on the Laguna, but I have been told they're around £50 to £70 a side. They're a press fit I think, so if you haven't got access to a press then I guess it'll be a garage job anyway....so a rough guess £250 to £300 including labour for both sides (just a very rough guess mind you
I think I've got a rear one in it's early stages on mine, as I have a very feint rumble from the rear, but nothing showing yet checking the bearings.
Bearings do wear out eventually with higher mileages,I've changed plenty over the years where the bearing tracks have become notched just due to age, tends to be more taper roller bearings (heavy vehicles), than the roller type cars tend to use nowadays though.
