If the strut is leaking, it needs to be replaced. It is also recommended to replace them in pairs.

SOURCE: How do I change brake light bulb on 2005 Nissan Altima

The first objective is to figure out which bulb you need. I had to replace the bulb for the largest light which was a Sylvania 3157. The next objective is to remove the dang plastic carpet holder/net clip. Recognize that it is a two part piece. Use a flathead screwdriver for leverage. Pry the cap off by levering the screwdriver in the slot on the holder. Then go behind the carpet and pinch the plastic pin still holding the holder in place. Next,pry off the while plastic pieces from the two bolt/nuts you'll need to remove (see manual). Remove the nuts and give the two screws a push from the inside so you can see how the whole light casing comes off. Pry it off from the outside. On the backside of the bulb holder, turn bulb base counterclockwise and gently remove. Pull bulb upward and replace. Do not touch glass on new bulb with your fingers (wear non-powdered rubber gloves). Make sure the bulb snaps in place. Follow these instructions in reverse. Smile, you just learned something new and saved yourself some easy money.

Was told i have a leak in my struts. How do I replace for cheap and what are some reasonably priced upgrades.


it's not that hard rate it about a 6, if they are coil over you will need a coil spring compressor. You usually have 3 or 4 bolts on top 2 at the bottom, it comes off in one piece then that's were the work comes in with coil spring compressor.

Troubleshooting oil leaks on Nissan Altima


    Your Altima uses a variety of different oils to lubricate various components. Normally, these oils won't leak. But when you do find a leak, you will almost always need to have extensive work done on your Altima to correct the problem. However, before you can replace anything, you need to know what kind of oil it is
    Check for brown or black oil leaking on the ground or on the side of the engine. This is engine oil. It lubricates critical engine components. A leak means that an engine seal has failed and needs to be replaced

    Check for red oil. Red oil is trans fluid. On your Altima, it most likely means that you have a rear main seal on the transmission that has failed. However, any seal on the transmission is possible. Transmission leaks need to be fixed immediately. A transmission can fail catastrophically in 20 minutes of driving if there is insufficient oil in the transmission

    Check for amber or brown oil leaking from your trans. This is transmission gear oil found only on the manual version of the Nissan Altima.

I had a wreck when the other driver hit me head on mostly on the front drivers side of my 2005 Nissan Altima, what should I be checking internallly or under the hood? Front axle, struts, shocks, brakes,...


What I would suggest is taking it to a dealership and have perform an inspection on the car. Let them know you were in a wreck, so they would be able to look for any frame damage, leaks, or any other damage to the car. What I would suggest is communicate with your insurance company, because one Strut alone (If you needed it) would run at least $200 in labor (If their labor rate is around $100 an hour or so).

Do I need to remove struts first to replace lower ball joints on a 95 Nissan Altima?


Would help to unbolt the strut from the steering knuckle to help getting the knuckle off the ball joint.

Are the ball joints on a 97 Nissan Altima pressed in? Basically just want to know if I can fix this with common tools.


there are ball joints on the bottom of the control arm and the upper "ball joints" are the upper strut mount attacthed to the strut holding the spring in place. the lower ball joing can be replaced removing the c clip on top and hammering out. be careful not to damage the arm. worse case you may need to remove the lower control arm and take to a machine shop to press out the old and press in the new. if you have a large vice, you may be able to do it too with some deep set sockets and the vice.

I got all 4 struts replaced within the past 2 weeks. My car now has a slow oil leak coming from the front driver's side of the car. Also, there is a metal on metal grinding sound coming from the front...


they might have damaged something while jacking it up... if you can prove they damaged the car then they have to rectify it. simple as that.
Oil leak could be sump or gearbox - depending on where they put the jack...
The grinding sound could be the backing plate for the brake disc/rotor grinding against the rotor, it gets bent when you drop the suspension when changing struts... it happens when you don't know what you're doing. since an experienced mechanic would have 1- jacked the car up further, 2- propped the brake and hub up with something, 3- held it while undoing the last bolt.

Do the struts need replacing after 80,000 miles. Our tire service called and said they need replacing on my '04 Altima


the strut only need replacing if there is alot of bounce in the car, or if there leaking, or the main reason is there broken. that would be the only reasons to replace struts
