The rotor is tight up, by 5 lug nuts. Tight up to 75 ft/lbs each lug nut in right sequence. I hope this will help, but you must have a bad knuckle bearing too. This can be repaired by changing the spindle only, but you have to remove the knuckle from, front suspension, and separate it from the strut.

Why is my nissan versa making noise that sounds like a bad wheel bearing?


Excellent first guess...

Standard Operating Procedure for reversing a noise
resulting from putting on winter tires... Would be to put the
non-winter tires back on... To see if the noise clears.

I have heard TANKS make less noise than some of these "WINTER TIRES "...

Otherwise you need to be testing and wiggling EVERY joint, bearing & busing... Looking for looseness or Play...

Hope this helps.

Whirring Noise from Right Front While Driving


If you have access to a lift put it on and look at the area where the noise is coming from if you have a small camera try and put it somewhere you may be able to see what it is doing.
Good luck.

Rear tire noise


How many miles on your 328? My son's car was making a grinding noise and our independent mechanic told me it was the rear differential. I assumed he was correct and bought a replacement. However, before I installed it, I noticed the outer 3/4" of his passenger side rear rotor was discolored and no longer shiny. His brake caliper was grinding the rotor! It was because the hub bearing was so badly worn. I replaced the bearing and all is well.

Humming noise after hitting curb


sounds like the wheel bearing needs to be replaced

My daughter has a 2006 nissan sentra about 6 months ago she hit a curb with the front passenger side tire we replaced the tire rim but its making a loud humming noise any advise would be greatly...


That loud humming noise you are hearing is the wheel bearing. After hitting the curb the bearing took a hit and became a little wobbly and over time the grease has seeped out and started causing the humming.So just replace the wheel bearing and anything else that might be loose or damaged like the tie rod and ball joints. if those issues are not corrected it might happen again down the road. good luck and glad to shed some light on your issue

Check the dust shield on the brake rotor's. There known to warp due to the heat of the brakes and will rub against the brake rotors or rim it self. Good luck and hope this helps, the other thing to that would create the squeak is low brake pads indicators rubbing against the rotors and it's time for new brake pads.

200SX SE Nissan 1996, making weird noise on passenger side


a little tip for you...it sounds like the pads are squealing, try taking the pads out and applying a very thin film of high temperature grease on the rear of the pads (NOT TO THE FRICTION SIDE), this may seem a bit of an odd thing to do, this tip was passed down to me by an old mechanic friend of mine years ago,and it works every time for me.

Thumping at front passenger wheel area


if the noise isassociated with "wheel speed" then it is in the rolling parts... axle hub bearing brake rotor caliper wheel or tires...if it goes away on right turns then you are unloading or separating the issue then...so a hub /wheel bearing /axle issue is most likely...does your brake pedal pulse when you feel it..(riding the brake while driving)..does the steering wheel shimmy ?
