Hello,

I had the brake rotors in my 2014 Forester replaced and a drowning noise that was low is now beginning to concern me - the noise occurs when I'm driving 40+ mph.
Could it be wheel bearings? I had a similar issue with a Chevy car 20 years ago, but my Forester has only 51k miles.

Thoughts?

Thanks!

Bumping this thread...

Is it "acceptable" that wheel bearings start making noise in a 51k miles Forester?

I'm not sure what you mean by "acceptable." It's certainly a bummer if you don't have an extended warranty. Here's another thread on wheel bearing problems:

I don't think it will really help, but at least you'll know that you're not alone...

Thanks for all the information, everyone! I will call Subaru to see if the wheel bearings can be replaced under the Powertrain warranty extension my got car a couple of years ago.

And to think that I had a '04 Forester I sold with 135k miles and it was working like a charm - no strange noises.

The break disk back metal plate is hitting the rotor disk. It take me long time to figure it out where the noise coming from.

Just had a tsb concerning noise and rear brakes.
Part of the solution is a new backing plate
