Default Losing another rear bearing...

Argh! I think it's the same side as last time (passenger). I think I'll put a whole (used) Legacy rear hub on this time, it's probably cheaper than paying the deductible on my extended warranty...

This'll be the same bearing twice in 45,000 miles.

If it was done improperly the first time you'll just continue to eat them up. Sounds like the housing was deformed.

out of curiosity did you use Legacy or Forester bearings the first time you replaced? I have been told to replace with Legacy bearings and seals rather than Forester ones.

It was warrantied last fall, so I'd have to assume they used a Forester/Impreza bearing and seals and the "old" replacement procedure.
