SOURCE: front brakes-2001 Nissan Sentra

You will need a jack and 2 jack stands to get the front wheels off the ground (break the lug nuts loose before lifting) and support the vehicle.

You will need the lug nut wrench (or a 1/2 inch breaker bar and 21 MM socket) to remove the wheel.

You will need a 14 MM wrench to remove the caliper bolts and possibly a flat head screwdriver to pry the caliper off of the pads if it is difficult.

You will need a big pair of channel lock pliers to compress the piston back into the caliper bore to allow room for the new pads.

You may need a hammer to hit the rotors to break them loose if they are rusted into place on the hub- a couple good shots should break them free if needed.

You will also need a wire brush and some good brake grease (available at any parts store). You will want to see any place that the pads contact a stationary surface and clean this area and apply a film of the grease to these points to prevent binding and uneven pad wear.

Hope this is helpful!!

SOURCE: Shake in steering wheel

I believe you need your disk brake rotors turned to be true again or have them replaced. Whe you use your brakes a lot and kit puddles of cold water then it will warp the rotors which will cause the violent shaking. You may not feel it in the brake pedal even if it is warped rotors. If you don't think you have warped rotors then you should be very careful driving it because it will probably be in the steering sector arm or the idler arm on the steering shaft.

SOURCE: brake light, 2008 Nissan Sentra

Open the trunk and locate the trim door that covers the back of the drivers side tail light assembly. Open the door and locate the bulb holder. The bulb holder can be removed from the tail light assembly housing by turning counter clockwise 1/4 turn. Holding the bulb holder in one hand, press gently on the bulb and turn then bulb counter clockwise to remove. Replace with a combo bulb and reverse proceedure to re-install.

SOURCE: Nissan Frontier 02 ABS LIGHT AND BAD SHAKE ON HIGHWAY

i would start with checking the axles because most of them have a abs ring on them which will trigger the abs light. also make sure your axles are in good shape. last resort would be that you need new tires because the steel bands inside are starting to seperate. good luck

SOURCE: front end shakes at all speeds, worsens at higher

Hello!
Could honestly be something a simple as low air in one of the front tires that will throw off alignment, or a little more complex as a bent tie rod or worn out CV joint (low on lube). Start with the simple -- check the air in all the tires and make sure they are all at the correct PSI. If you still find that it does the same, try driving it on the highway (or any straight away) and let go of the wheel for a brief moment to see if the car pulls to a certain direction. If it still drives straight then I would scratch off the bent tie rod. Still could be CV joint or even the sway bar is damaged. Being a 2003, I may even venture to say that the engine mounts may be a little worn and the shake is the result of normal engine running but poor stability due to the old mounts.
As you can see there could be a WIDE range of things. Best thing to do for safety sake is to bring it in to a shop. Have them do an inspection. Most places charge minimal for an inspection and at that point you can make a decision on whether it is worth fixing.
Hope this helps a little!

When i hit the brakes or go over 60 miles the wheels will start to shake


It sounds like you may have more than one problem here. First I would investigate Front End Alignment and ALL Steering/Suspension components for excessive wear and/or looseness. Second I would Inspect the Brake Rotors and Pads for uneven wear. Third I would check the Tires for uneven wear and balance. Many things can cause these symptoms: Worn out Ball Joints, defective Shock Absorbers/Struts. Worn out Tie Rod Ends, Idler Arm, even the Steering Gear Box can be part of the problem. Brake Rotors and Tires can be out of Balance with either one causing the problem over 60 MPH. I strongly suggest having your vehicle inspected by an ASE Certified Front End and Brake specialist immediately. It is very dangerous to drive a vehicle with these symptoms.

Front wheels and steering wheel shake while driving


If you get a bad vibration in your steering wheel at low speeds without braking it is either a bad tire or a bad rim. If you get a vibration at speeds around 45-50+ and goes away you probably have a balance issue. If the vibration only occurs while braking then your rotors are warped. If low speeds it shakes i'd take it to a shop to check your tires.
