190E wheel bearings, maybe

I don't see any left side damage so how can you think a worn out LF wheel bearing could be included in the in the body repair? As a matter of fact, your damage looks about like my C280's did after kissing the corner of a pickup at 7mph. All superficial with no structural damage. It did cost $8400 though.

The LF wheel bearing failed suddenly at 47000 miles in my Porsche 944 a few years ago and you have never heard such a god-awful racket. And I was convinced it was the LR bearing until the mechanic showed me how wrong I was. Good thing because the front is vastly cheaper to replace than the rear.
