Hey all, first post here!

I've got a 2015 with a front wheel bearing that's gone bad.
I'm debating over trying to get it warranted and risk having to fork over the diagnostic fee if it's deemed not covered for whatever reason, or just doing it myself.

I'm curious, has anyone out there gone through the process yet? Is the bearing pressed in? It looks like it's probably just the 4 bolts and hammer it out. Looking things over, it looks like I could get away without removing the knuckle like the FSM says to do. Am I crazy?

Thanks!

You mention about getting it warranted so if a warranty claim is an option then i would certainly suggest it. Have you got any paperwork that confirms it would be covered by the warranty?

Whats the mileage?

Maybe get an independent confirmation that its the bearing before you go to claim the warranty if your not totally sure.

Is it grinding and being noisy when driving, what are symptoms?

Mine was just knocking really badly all the time, have just changed shock absorber strut assembly and now all fixed perfect again.
