    I have a similar problem with my 2000 Altima. At low speeds I hear a grinding noise from the passenger rear. Above 10 mph it seems fine and I don't hear anything turning.

    4 speed automatic, Nissan Altima 2.5s droning / humming sound with vibration at low speed only. If the car is parked in N or P there is no vibration and if you press the gas paddle slowly then you can feel humming + vibration around 2000 rpm while it goes away as soon as the rpm increases.

    When driving at normal speeds 50-60 kph there is a metallic vibration noise that comes from under the car. This noise only occurs when the revs are between 1500 and 2000 and it comes and goes. have checked for loose components but there are none. 2006 model with auto

I had the same thing which progressed to the steering wheel skaking. My suggestion is have the hub assembly checked out. I replaced mine from a salvage yard for $75 and it took one hour to fix. The hub assembly, berrings and knuckle are all one piece. Hope that helps you. It sounds exactly like mine did at first!

I would suspect the wire wear is uneven from your description the sound increases with speed. it should be quite smooth when you run your fingers through it on inspection. some oem goodyears are prone to this esp when you don't rotate your tyres. good luck!

CV joint has gotten debris and moisture inside. The CV boot is bad and not protecting the joint. Now its metal on metal grinding. This happens when turning as there is more pressure on the joint. Please fix this ASAP as it can be dangerous to drive on a bad CV joint. While I have seen people drive with a bad CV joint for over 4k miles, it is NOT recommended!

Hello i would check your wheel bearings or sometimes called bearing hub .Jack car up prop the car with axle stands now remove your tires and rotors once removed wiggle you bearing hub left to the right your bearing hub should have minimal play one side to the other is obvious the looser play hub will be your noise you have been experiencing.most people call this road noise.

Hear a grinding noise from the right front wheel when I make left turn (mostly). Noise has now progressed to anytime the wheel is in motion. Also hear squeeking sound (ball bearing possibly?). I've changed...


You should definitely pull the front wheel and check the bearings (they are roller bearings, not ball bearings). With the wheel off, you should be able to isolate where the noise is coming from, but I vote for the bearings. Check, replace and/or repack, and adjust properly. If you have noise, you should be able to feel the "play" in the bearings, or see the wear problem on the spindle and bearings. I hope this helps you.

Could be the bearings in your alternator have gone dry and your alternator is about to quit out on you. I had a friend with an 01 altima and we could always hear him coming before we saw him because of this very problem. Changed the alternator out and noise went away. Thanks for using FixYa!

Scraping sound at very low speed (5MPH)


I have personally seen a lot of wheel bearings go bad on these vehicles. If you hear the noise get more pronounced when turning left, the right front (passenger side) bearing is most likely the culprit- if turning right, it would be the left front (driver side) bearing.

Hope this is helpful!!
