Question about 2003 Nissan Altima
2003 Nissan Altima with steering wheel vibration. First heard a chain dragging noise from rear of car, then became a whine. Just had two front tire installed and all 4 aligned and balanced. Could this be my wheel bearings? Would they cause the vibration?
Yes, and it probably is your wheel bearing. Hearing a sound like a chain dragging is classic. You may also hear a clicking noise or chain dragging noise when turning to the left or right.
Look under the car and see if the rubber boots that surround the axle near the tires are cracked and leaking grease. If so, it is almost a certainty that the bearings are bad as you have lost grease and thus lubrication to the bearings.
