Question about 2004 Nissan XTerra
I have a 2004 Nissan Xterra. When I crank the wheel all the way to the right or left it makes this horrible popping and grinding sound. What is it and how much can I expect to pay for repairs?
This sounds very much like a problem with your front wheel bearings.
The Xterra Wheel Bearings need to be re-greased at least every 30k miles, and more often if you often go through water deep enough to reach the hubs. When the water gets in the hubs it contaminates the grease and damage can be done to the bearings. This will create a grinding noise and in severe cases even damage to the axle spindle.
You will need to have this looked at by a mechanic to fully assess the damage. Cost will very much be dependant on the extent of this damage.
This link gives an idea of the cost for bearings on the Xterra but obviously this does not include labor to fit. As I say the overall cost is difficult to predict until the full extent of the damage is known.
Hope this helps. Thanks for using FixYa.
