On the brakes,yes

Now I would like you to put Nissan Issues,Nissan Problems,Nissan Recalls, into your search engine and read up on all 2005 ,2006,2007, 2nd Generation Trucks.

IMMEDIATELY--Buy an aftermarket NEW RADIATOR and install
All Frontiers,Pathfinder and Xterras have bad Trans Coolers in the OE Radiators,that WILL eventually leak coolant into your trans and ruin it.

I used to own a trans shop years ago, and I'm reading, as you will, that these transmissions are costing $4000 to $6000 to repair.
I cannot believe what I read ,as I have no experience with the 5 speed version, but the 4speed is a nice unit and costs about 1500 at most, retail to R&R.

Also, if your gas gauge acts up and it will,the fuel tanks are deformed and a new sending unit is required.

That was the good news,provided you act quickly.


I also see that is the trend, all of the dealers are going. I see and hear it locally,from other auto professionals and from relatives going to dealers.
Myself and my snap-on dealer get blown off, just trying to buy parts at dealerships. They refuse to work any longer with knowlegable people outside there dealer network.

Check front brake pads for wear and possible replacement. If never changed originals, there is a high likelihood they are worn out.

Changed the rear brake pads on nissan x trail 2002 model. Now the brakes klick as there applied?

You can get this problem if you use cheap brake pads that do not come with an anti rattle clip set. I would never recommend using metallic pads on any vehicle, although there are some good ones out there. I would recommend using only a full ceramic pad each and everytime you replace your pads.

The hard part is pressing the caliper piston abck into the caliper so you can get the new, thicker pads over the rotor. A large C Clamp works best.

Front brakes-2001 Nissan Sentra

You will need a jack and 2 jack stands to get the front wheels off the ground (break the lug nuts loose before lifting) and support the vehicle.

You will need the lug nut wrench (or a 1/2 inch breaker bar and 21 MM socket) to remove the wheel.

You will need a 14 MM wrench to remove the caliper bolts and possibly a flat head screwdriver to pry the caliper off of the pads if it is difficult.

You will need a big pair of channel lock pliers to compress the piston back into the caliper bore to allow room for the new pads.

You may need a hammer to hit the rotors to break them loose if they are rusted into place on the hub- a couple good shots should break them free if needed.

You will also need a wire brush and some good brake grease (available at any parts store). You will want to see any place that the pads contact a stationary surface and clean this area and apply a film of the grease to these points to prevent binding and uneven pad wear.

Hope this is helpful!!

300zx front brakes.

Nothing more special than a basic metric socket set, a good size C-clamp, and maybe a screwdriver. Remove the wheel and unbolt the caliper from the hub (two bolts on the backside, I believe 17mm). Remove the brake fluid reservoir cap. Slide the caliper off the rotor and remove the outer pad. Use the C-clamp against the inner pad to compress the pistons back into the caliper to provide clearance for the new, thicker pads to clear the rotor. Do the same for the outer pistons. Install the new pads, remount the caliper, and put the wheel back on. Replace the fluid cap, pump up the brake pedal for pressure, then take it out and bed the pads in with several back to back stops from 30mph with steady, even pressure on the pedal. You'll be good to go at that point.
