Help for Co-Worker's 2001, 525I

The ABS light comes on soon after driving. She took it to Roadshow BMW.They Replaced : WHEEL HUB W/BEARING, PROTECTION PLATE RIGHT SIDE. Total $ 794 parts and labor. OUCH!!! ABS light and warning light of a "triangle with an arrow incircling the triangle" comes on also. Roadshow "is at a loss", lets spend more money chasing a phantom". So to keep her sanity and checkbook from blowing up. Can anybody give some help?
Car runs fine and stops fine.

Was there any sign there was something wrong with the wheel bearing? Sometimes the ABS light on means the brake fluid is worn/old.

Unfortunately (Lisa) took the word of a dealership service rep that it was...so it's anyone's guess. If she would have come to me prior to taking it to dealer I believe we could have saved her some $. I'll let her know about brake fluid and make her join the forum. She's too nice and makes
an easy target for dealership villians...(me thinks.)
