Default Front wheel bearing failure

Replaced front brakes pads and keep hearing grinding noises. Replaced the rotors and caliper. The noise got worse and I took it to the dealership. They replaced the wheel bearing under warranty. They said it was the third one on the cross trek always the right one.

Whoa, grinding noises under braking?

Are you a spirited driver? Have you taken your XV off-road? You've got me a bit concerned...

I appreciate you posting this, as it could be an issue any of us Crosstrekkers may encounter.

I'm wondering if the bearings were ever submerged.....

I live in the northeast and they put down a lot salt. We do drive on dirt roads same, but not any rough off road. I think that the wheel bearing would last longer than 45000 miles in most driving conditions. My have been just a bad lot of bearings.

I had to replace a front wheel bearing at 25,000 miles, and I drive very conservatively. It was covered under the warrantee. I live in the northeast too (VT).

I had to replace my passenger side rear bearing at 29K miles on my '13 Crosstrek. I just turned over 62K miles and BOTH my front bearings are going. As for the brake noise issue. I have had no end of problems with that. There isn't any damage being done, and there is no issue with braking ability, but the rotors get a rim of rust around the outside of them and it sounds like the brakes are grinding the rotors to shreds. Usually every oil change I have to have them ground down to keep the noise down. Where I live, in the winter, I plow thru 12-18 inches of snow at least twice a month, and then deal with snow covered roads with sand, and then main roads loaded with salt.

Another issue with that is the road gunk building up in the rims. Have to poke the stuff out once a day or the car shakes itself to death from the rimes being out of balance from the build up of snow/ice/sand.

Just replaced both rear bearings at 45k, covered by the power train warranty but still sucks.

Ya'll got your wheel bearings covered under warranty? Mine, unfortunately, happened after the warranty period. Got one replaced around 67k and another one is scheduled for replacement with the engine block within this next two weeks. 89k.

My wheel bearings were covered (Had 2 left side fail at 53000 miles) no charge, but it took the dealer 4 days to do the job... Car rental for 3 + days cost more than a local garage non warranty repair. At 55K miles my front axles started clicking and after the 2nd oil change (5K OCI)in a row, came up a quart low. I Sold the unreliable POS! After 2 bullet proof Subaru cars I previously owned, this one had me change brands.
