2003 Altima 2.5 Deceleration Jerky above 40 mph and pulls left momentarily

Get the front end jacked up and safely supported and check out the control arm bushings for looseness, the CV joints and if noting found pull the left wheel and brake caliper off and make sure the calipers slides or pins are clean and properly lubed to allow the caliper to release properly.

'04 Altima - rattle under car

yea, flimsy plastic under front end, wheel wells, etc., could also be @ brake calipers, they have a flimsy metal clip that creates noise, all these will give you noise, just reinforce the plastic with screws,it works, some silcone will quiet the brake noise, check you CVjoints ,boots, make sure the rubber bellows are still attached, no cuts or splits with grease coming out, that would be a grinding noise. check your BELTS, worn or stretched needing replaced or tightened. that should do it.

Rattling sound when letting go of brakes through drive thrus

This could be your exhaust system. That is a common issue on a lot of vehicles, what happens is that a the rubber exhaust hangers will dry rot and that will enable the exhaust system to vibrate/rattle at an idle/low engine rpm's. Just to be sure about the brakes, I would check all of the calipers. You should have 4 wheel disc brakes so that will be real easy. If the calipers are tight then the issue is probably not the brakes. One other thing that you will want to check is the motor mounts. If they are bad they can cause that same noise. I hope that you have found this information useful as that is my goal.

How to change front brakepads on Nissan Almera 1996. I need to change the brakepads of my Nissan Almera but don´t know how to take off those ''claims'' that lock the pads. And I´m not sure how to...

all disc brakes work in a similar way. there are hold down bolts for the calipers which is what pads mount in. there is usually a keeper system that wont allow the pads to just fall out and usually cant be removed until you release the caliper. the hold down bolts may be bolt heads, allen heads or a larger star bit head. once the pads are removed you need to check the fex hoses condition and the rotors condition before you just slap a pair of new pads on. if the car had a slowregular wobble feel as you applied the brakes the rotors are likely warped from heat and need to be replaced or turned if the y are the type that can be turned. the caliper piston need to carefully be pushed back into the caliper. you need to watch your brake fluid resivoir while you do this as the fluid level will come up a little as you compress the cylinder back into the caliper. if you do all four disc brakes it can rarely even overflow depending on if you have added brake fluid lately. dont leave the cover for the brake resivoir off or the cap to the brake fluid off as brake fluid will draw moisure from the air quickly an affect the performance of the fluid if it gets too much water in it.
the best tool to sue to get the pistons back in can be purchased from your parts store for under 20 dollars and evenly and slowly compresses the piston back in. if you dont have one or choose not to buy one a mid size c clamp works well to. the main thing is not to get the caliper piston stuck by pushing it back in unevenly. this can require you to replace the caliper which would then require the brakes be bleed etc.
once back the brakes shoes can be put in place making sure you have the inner and outer shoes oriented correctly. some cars the pads are the same and in some they are different. there is a great little product called disc brake quiet that you smear on the bake of the new pads which prevents them from rattling or making any noise.
if all else checks out you now put the pad keepers back in which can sometimes be a challenge if your new at it then re mount the caliper on the car.check the brake fluid level and the operation of the brakes before you put the wheel back on then take a safe test drive. if done correcrly the brakes should feel smoother than they did and stop evenly without making any noise.
this is just a primer on disc brake replacement and requires skill and expertise and observation of other parts as you perform this. mechanics do this automatically since they may do 5-10 brake jobs a day so this advice is for informational use only and does not mean you are skilled enough to do this safely but this is the the basics on how to do it. good luck.

The hard part is pressing the caliper piston abck into the caliper so you can get the new, thicker pads over the rotor. A large C Clamp works best.
