Question about 1999 Nissan Sentra

1 Answer

"NTN - 04" part (bearing i think) fell from my Nissan Sentra 1999

Hi, my Nissan Sentra 1999 made a really weird noise while turning right. The passenger/front wheel seemed to shake for a second and then it stopped. I parked and found a round part made of metal that said "ntn 04". It seems to be a bearing.
Where does that part belong to?. What do you think happened?

Hi, if you found the part closer to the wheel than the middle of the engine then this bearing part you have found is going to be one of two things now the first and most likely problem is going to be that the drive shaft bering has collapsed now this is the most likely cause of your problem.

Now the second problem but less likely is that the wheel bearing has collapsed but if this had fallen apart and bits falling out then the chances are your wheel would have collapsed.

So to me it sounds like the drive shaft needs replacing, dont drive the car you could damage bushes or even the gearbox witch would be an expensive repair.

If your doing the work yourself then your going to need to undo the bottom ball joint and track rod end on that side to enable you to get the drive shaft out of the gear box, you will need special tools to do this so if your unsure what your doing then please leave it to a mechanic to do as getting it wrong could damage the gearbox beyond repair.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

I have a 2011 Nissan Sentra. It has developed a loud hum and vibration to the steering wheel from the front end .it has 180,000km. Any ideas?

How are the tires? New? Old? Rotate them and see if noise goes away. Possibly front wheel bearing in the front drive axle where it goes thru the hub and rotor.......goes the noise get worse if you turn right or left slightly when driving it? If it gets worse on one side that is the side with the bad bearing.....replace as needed.

Weird Squealing Noise under the hood

Couple of thoughts -
1) a belt is slightly loose. not enough tension it could be slipping.
2) when you had the belts replaced, the new ones could have been over-tensioned, which could wear out a pulley bearing.

My nissan lec 95 has a dragging sound in the front wheel

Check your brakes, c/v joint boots for tears (indicates contaminated joint) and wheel bearing hubs (least likely) One of these is making that noise.
