Wheel bearing gone! Anyone else?

Recommended Posts

Just had the misses in with the first lexus complaint. It's making a funny noise said she!

I thought maby she's caught the engine guard on the rough, took it a run and wtf! The front bearing is balling its head off! 

Anyone else had one fail yet?

Yep had both my front wheel bearings replaced on my 2014 IS 300h at 80,000 miles. Fortunately both done under the Lexus extended warranty.

The early failure is probably due to pothole damage rather than just bearing failure through faulty materials. The bearings take a real beating particularly on the front with the weight of the engine when you hit a pothole.

Bearing replaced. Took the sensor off the back of the old one and it's clearly been taking in moisture. Let's see how long the other side lasts.

I`d have thought that a low profile of 35 on 19in wheels would have made the ride very uncomfortable and pothole unfriendly.

It's not too bad as it's not got the harsh f sport suspension. Its not any harder on the rough but it's noticably better in the corners, less lean on the tyre walls. And sits with soooo nice gaps without lowering. 

The wife thinks more of the car than she does of me and is well aware of where the holes are, she is able to avoid the most. 

The wheels and tyres have been on for 12k and not 1 nick chip or kerb mark.
