Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Hi I have a 1995 Nissan Terrano Urban R, I'm currently experiencing braking problems? I'd recently had the front wheel bearings tightened and regreased , as I was getting a shuddering / pulsing when applying the brakes , now if I apply the brakes slowly to moderate pressure the brakes work fine , but the question or problem is 'if I pumped the brakes when traveling at 90k/m hr towing a load or following slower traffic or on steep or windy roads' I'm just a little concerned that if I had to suddenly stop in an emergency my brakes might fail. What actually happens is the brake pedal pumps up and gets really hard to push, and no it doesn't slowly go down , it just gets harder to push each time? I have checked the disc brake pads in the front and has atleast about 3 or 4 mm of pad left on each pad and checked brake shoes in the rear , they too have 3 to 4 mm of pad left . I read on the net 'the booster servo test' I could pump the brakes 10x with engine off, start the engine with foot still on the brake pedal, the pedal should get sucked down a little and it did, as this may help with too much vaccum? But this didn't fix my problem, Do you have any suggestions or what could be my problem and how to fix it? cheers Adam k

It sounds like the rear calipers are bad. Raise the rear wheels and see if you can turn the tires. If you can't, open the bleeder. If you still can't replace the caliper. If you can turn the wheel after you open the bleeder, replace the brake hose to that wheel.

it could be that the master cylinder is bad or the brake booster is bad also check the vacum hose going to the brake booster if it has a hole in it it will lose pressure and make the engine lose rpms

How do remove the centre hub from a 1996 nissan terrano. im trying replace the brake rotors


Take the wheel off. then the grease cap. There will be a keeper that has 2 screws, take those out, then remove the keeper. You will see another keeper, but this one is actually a nut. There are two round holes on the keeper, take a punch, or a common screwdriver, and a hammer and tap it off. If will spin. Make sure that you keep these parts free of dirt, as the wheel bearing will pick it up and ruin it. Once you have these removed, then the wheel assembly will slide right off. When you are installing them make sure that you have seated the wheel unit on before you thread the nut on. Tighten the nut as far as you can using a screwdriver to spin it on, and then tap it tight with the screwdriver and hammer, make sure that you do not get it too tight, or you will cause the bearing to wear prematurely.

  10. Insert a prybar through the U-joint and wedge the shaft inward as far as it will go. Make sure that it is wedged securely and can't be moved.
  11. Install the hub, rotor and bearing assembly and tighten the retainer bolts to 30 ft. lbs. (40 Nm) in a crisscross pattern.
  12. Install the brake adapter. Tighten the bolts to 85 ft. lbs. (115 Nm).
  13. Remove the prybar form the U-joint.
  14. Install the axle shaft nut and tighten it to 100 ft. lbs. (136 Nm), then continue tightening it to align the cotter pin holes. Install the cotter pin.

1995 nissan terrano 2.7 turbo diesel 4wd. just wonding what will be causing the clicking sound while turning?i have replaced the wheel bearings,thort that will be the problem but not so.the 4wd is not...


It could be the front cv joints even when the 4wd is not engaged. The wheels are set up like a front wheel driven car, so they have half shafts that go into your transfer case. Have a look at the cv boots, and see if its leaking grease, but then again, the mechanic who replaced your wheel bearings would have noticed something wrong.
If not that, and if it clicks when you are truning the steering wheel, the rack and pinion has lost its fluid. Might wanna check the boots on the tie rods and see if they are leaking fluid.

How do I get the front brake rotors off a 1999 nissan pathfinder, 2 wheel drive


First block the rear wheels so they won't roll.
2. Jack the front end up and put on jack stands don't trust the jack for long periods of time.
3. Remove front wheels and brake calipers.
4. In the center of the rotor as you look at it is a dust cover remove this
5. There should be a lock cap with a cotter pin thru it, remove the pin and lock cap
6. Remove the nut holding the bearings in place.
7. Remove rotor by pulling toward you, be careful the bearings will come out also, don't let them fall or get dirty.
8. There is a seal in the back of the rotor to give access to inner bearing.
9. Replace seals and repack inner and outer bearings and reverse to install. Being careful not to over tighten the front wheel bearings. If you do they wil sieze up then you have a real mess.

C V Boots


hi mate i dont no if this is the same case but i have found that when the boots on cv joints are perished or missing that is an indication that the roller bearings inside are worn enough to be replaced the boots are designed to keep bearings lubricated and free of dirt once there is cracks in the boot grease comes out dirt gets in and they wear out very quickly and need to be replaced replacement is easy jack up car put safety stands under bolt off bolts on simple but be shore to replace bolts with new they are usually quite stressed
