Question about 2005 Nissan Altima

1 Answer

Noise from rear wheel area that sounds like bearing noise.

I have a 2005 Altima SE witha V-six. There is a pulsing noise from the rear wheel area that sounds like possibly wheel bearings. It seems to be worse at speeds between 45 & 55. I jacked each side up & felt for play & roughness in the bearings. I didn't feel anything that seemed abnormal. A little brake pad drag. I did notice the the left rear tire is worn more on the inside. Any suggestions?

Might want to check your camber adjustments and look into shocks and struts. They could all be worn out but prolly the camber is off causing abnormal road noise and abnormal tire wear

My 2005 Nissan altima sounds like it has wide tires when I'm driving, from the rear end.whats the problem?


Could be a bad wheel bearing if it's a roaring noise. Or possibly a tire noise due to uneven wear

I have a 2009 altima. I hearing a roaring noise


In my 2005 Nissan Altima I experienced a roaring noise from the rear of the car. It ended up being the rear wheel bearings needed to be replaced. It appears that this is a common problem with Nissan Altima's & Maxima's of varying years even with fairly low mileage. This might be your problem.

I have a constant grinding noise coming from the left front tire assembly. I replaced brakes and rotors and noise is still there. none of the noise is a result of pressing on the brakes. any ideas?


I would guess wheel bearings. does the noise increase as you go faster? Altima wheel bearings are common. If this is the case go ahead and replace both sides as the other one will go soon as well. I hope this helps and good luck.

I have alot of grinding out of the rearend


Sounds like bearing or bearing are gone out. Jack up vehicle, check fluid level. Grab one wheel and spin it, listening for noise from wheel bearing area and the rear end. If no noise, spin other wheel listening for noise from that wheels bearing.

If it's a heavy grinding you are hearing, it's rear end.

Have owned 2 2006 altimas and both have had roaring noise like a wheel bearing going out in right rear


It may be caused by a bad wheel bearing. To be sure, try to swap the 4 wheels and see if there would be changes in the noise location. If it does change, the noise may be from the tires that are not worn out evenly.

Steering wheel vibration and whine noise from rear of car


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.

Good luck,

Noise running altima 2003


Sounds like you may have a wheel bearing issue based on your description. Could also be a backing plate contacting the brake rotor, but that would be a higher sounding "tinny" noise. This should be easy to determine. Jack up the rear of the vehicle and check each wheel while spinning by hand for the noise.
