Default Honda Accord 2000 -- Bearing replacement question

2000-Accord-4DR-EX with ~105,000 miles. The car when driving above 35 mph, a strange noise comes from the right rear; on highway it is even louder at 65mph. Anyway the mechanic diagnosed it as 'bearing' problem for the right rear wheel.

He quoted $350 for replacement part and labor. He wants to replace bearing and also the rotor. My question is why rotor also needs replacement? Thanks for any replies.

Good question, probably not ness. but if it was running back and forth and is warped badly or worn too thin then replace it. Have him check the thickness of the rotor to decide.

I looked at some youtube videos and they haven't changed the rotor. I will definitely have him look for warp or worn. Thanks a lot for your inputs.

The gas station mechanic said that the rotor also needs to be replaced, since he has to hit hard on it to pop it out, so could be warped. Had the bearing and rotor replaced for $385.
