I feel much better then. It may also have a rust ridge to the back of the pads on the drum. Overall, I'm very happy with the ride. I Know its the wheel seal or axle seal whatever you want to call it needs to be changed however, how hard is it to do to change it out. To maintain flexibility, the Nissan axel assembly also has two constant velocity joints, which allow the driveshaft to be at the correct angles to the wheel and transmission at all times. I would say once you're setup, should not take more than 30-40 minutes per side.
This also requires brute force. First,they could be stuck on the wheel studs. Truth be told those damn split boots end up taking almost half as long to install as the whole axle though. If it is, I've overpaid I'm sure and why it keeps happening has not probably been addressed unless the shot suspension could be a contributor. Since 2000, Centric Parts has supplied the automotive aftermarket with high-quality replacement brake parts. Ordering your Nissan axle assembly, or any other of our numerous parts and accessories, is always safe and secure, whether you use our online ordering site or our toll-free telephone number.
I think I am used to my 330 which essentially has track ready big brakes right from the factory, there is a large part of me that is going to miss that car terribly. . Posted on Oct 18, 2010 if it is the seal, you will have to remove the caliper and rotor, remove the differential cover and remove the bolt and pin inside the diff carrier housing. We have over lots of customer reviews on Nissan Axle Seal to help you find exactly what you need. The constant velocity joint consists of a system of gears that allow flexibility, and these gears are covered in a rubber shield, called a boot. If the rear axle is how I remember it, there's a seal in the axle tube and a grease seal on the axle.
The Pathfinder has a lot more weight and a lot higher center of gravity. . The wheel cylinder was fine and looked like everything was being tossed up from the axle. If I were refering to either of the Q45's in my signature then I would have posted in the respected forum. Like universal joints, if there was only one constant velocity joint on the assembly, a large amount of vibration would be produced, and the Nissan axel assembly would not be as flexible.
Thanks There is a good explanation in the fsm. Repeat this until it starts to move. Would it be smart to go ahead and rent a slide hammer with hub attachment when I purchase the parts? A slip joint is used to ensure that the wheels have power as the vehicle is steered around a corner. All the stuff coming off was original except for maybe the rear control arms. I've read conflicting things, some say that the seal is easy to replace and you can leave the grease seal alone, and others say that it is a royal bear. Can anyone confirm this with experience? No need for name calling.
In the front, however, there is a separate driveshaft for each wheel, called the Nissan axel assembly. Fortunately, our online catalog has the perfect Nissan axel assembly for your vehicle, at a great price compared to the dealership. We provide incredibly reasonable prices on quality parts. It is in pretty good shape except when I took it for an oil change today at firestone they brought a few things to my attention. I'll post pics of the new stance and measurements later. After picking up the vehicle from the new shop I noticed there didn't appear to be any marks on the nuts around the center section indicating someone took a socket to it. This device must transfer power to the wheels, no matter what position they are in, relative to the transmission.
It also appears they did something with an axle at the same time, but the records are dicey at best. I'm also hoping they may be able to pull up the service history on it and give me a better idea of what has and hasn't been done. I can't speak for Hawk pads as I've never used them. I changed one side a couple months ago and it does take a little work , and that is if you have the tools. Not exactly sure what axle is under a 2001. One other question, I realize i'm operating off of 3 wheel braking right now, but the truck does not seem to have much braking power under panic braking conditions even considering that.
Pricing up the parts autozone website I come up with a very conservative price of 375. I plan to replace inner axle seals on both sides, both rear shoes and drums, both rear wheel cylinders, all the springs associated with the rear drums, and of course do a rear diff fluid service. Removed the drum and it was a mess in there. You might also want to make sure the front struts are good, as well, and check the condition of the rotors for glazing and condition of the front pads. .
The axle is not making noise yet so if I can't get to it I will at least pack it full of grease again and maybe instal a split boot kit until I have time to fix it right. I called to get the two recalls squared away today, when I put in gas this afternoon I realized it was leaking out in front of the tire-classic symptom of the fuel filler neck recall. If you need to replace the grease seal on the axle, you need to press parts off and on and will need to replace the wheel bearing and lock washer, as well, and bleed the brake line as it will need to be disconnected. Additionally, carfax indicates Nissan replaced the front pads and rotors about 12000 miles ago, so that is a good thing. If it is this simple, I want to follow up with the shop tomorrow and get them to give me a warranty period versus trying to get money back. The first and most important is they said the right rear axle seal is leaking and has soaked all of the brake hardware back there.
I do know that on my 95 with 233b , it is a pain in the neck. Would a pad change to hawk etc in the front make a huge difference, or is the one rear wheel being coated in oil making a bigger difference than i'm thinking it is? I wouldn't think you need to replace the brake drums, but you would need to clean them up and I would recommend have them resurfaced. How common is it for the spline to get frozen into the hub on these? The power must also remain at a constant speed at each end of the Nissan axel assembly, to minimize vibrations and component damage. Hopefully this problem gets fixed on Nissan's dime on Friday. I would suggest you take care of the oil leak and rear brakes, first, then see how the brakes are. These reviews are from anyone who purchased those parts, in this case a Axle Seal, so you can feel confident that you know what you are buying.
