Front-end noise

My 2002 Forester has been making a humming noise in the driver side front end. Sounds like it's coming from tire. Get's louder when I accelerate. I've had the tie rod changed, the tires rotated and balanced and still have the noise. Any ideas.

    My best guess is wheel bearing.

    Any idea on repair cost?

    Subaru covered it under warranty, so I don't konw.

    Mazda charged us a couple hundred or so on our old 626, IIRC.

    Thanks for the info. A couple of hundred doesn't sound so bad.
