Question about Nissan Navara
Navara 2.7 diesel, 2001, 2 wheel drive, Limited slip diff. 170 000km. Has a distictive whine in 5th gear sometimes worse than others. While driving it sounds like it is coming from the rear of the vehicle but only really occurs in 5th gear so I guess it can't be the diff. I changed the gearbox oil about 4 months ago because of the noise but it made no difference. I did notice a small amount of metal fur on the drain plug magnet. I'm thinking 5th gear shaft bearings as the noise is relatively high pitched. Only other thing is the driveshaft but I would expect the noise across the gear range. So assuming it is the gearbox, has anyone had such experience and is there a good website for step by step instructions. It's been 25 years since I pulled a box. Ta Nigel
I couldnt find Navara in the drop list so have selected Frontier as the closest. I'm from New Zealand
