Let me preface this by saying I know next to nothing about cars, so excuse me if this doesn't make sense. . .
I have a 2003 Subaru Forester that needs a ball bearing replaced (I believe that's what it's called?!). When they went to fix this yesterday, apparently they couldn't do so because everything was "seized up." They tried calling around for a price quote for the cost of fixing this issue, but we're unable to do so, I'm guessing because it was a Saturday.
I will call back tomorrow to get more information. Google searches only bring up results about a seized engine, which I don't believe is the issue because the car is currently drivable.
Also, what is the urgency of getting something like this fixed, from a scale of the car will eventually stop working to the car may spontaneously explode?
I apologize if I haven't provided enough info to answer the question. The mechanic that worked on my car wasn't around when I went in, and the other employees didn't really seem to know what was going on. And me being car illiterate didn't even know what questions to ask.
