SOURCE: replacement of a head gasket on 2.5 liter nissan altima 2002

frajogag: First off, be aware that these bolts are "torque to yield" bolts (streach bolts). What this means is that instead of torqueing the head bolts to a specific torque specification, they are torqued down to a set spec and then tightened by rotating the bolts a certain angle, like 90 degrees. and all of them are turned the same amount.
This means that the shanks of the bolts must be checked to make sure they are not too thin (or the bolt has already stretched beyond limits and is prone to snap if used)
Here is how you check the bolts. Measure the bolt using a micrometer, at the base, or within the first 13mm from the end where it threads in. Then go to about 10mm before the threads end heading toward the top of the bolt. There should not be more than a 0.23mm (.0091 inch) or less difference or the bolt should be discarded.
Torque the bolts down to 98.1Nm ( 72.ft lb)
Looking at the head from the side, so you are looking at the full length from side to side, I will number the head bolts in this fashion.
#1 & 2 are directly in front of you and in the center of the cylinder head crossing it width wise.
#3&4 are to the left of #1&2, / #5&6 are to the right of #1&2
#7&8 are to the left of #3&4 / #9$10 are to the right of #5&6
Now, you have the sequence.
After the initial pull, back off all the bolts in the same sequence and then retorque them to 36 Nm ( 28 ft lb)
Using a torque angle wrench or having the ability to accurately judge turning angles. Rotate (clockwise) to a 75 degree angle. do this to all the bolts using the sequence I had provided.
Rotate the bolts (clockwise) 75 degrees again on all bolts in the same sequence. The proceedure is complete!

How do I replace the front wheel bearing hub assembly on a 2006 nissan altima

The front wheel bearings are pressed into the nuckle. You will need a kit to press them in and out or visit a shop or machine shop and have them press the bearing in and out.

To do this you will need to remove the knuckle.

1. remove the tire
2. remove the axle nut
3. separate the outer tie rod end from the knuckle
4. remove the caliper and rotor
5. separate the lower control arm from the knuckle.
6. remove axle from the hub.
7. unplug ABS sensor
8. remove the strut to knuckle mounting bolts.

With the knuckle removed the bearing can be pressed out and the new one pressed in. The most important step when reassembling is torquing the axle nut to the proper spec. Failure to do so will cause the new bearing to wear out prematurely!!!

It is also common for the hub (the part with the wheel studs) to wear out and need to be replaced as well.

If you have any questions let me know!

New hub assembly

General Motors has released a new style drive axle nut for many 97-03 models. This new and improved nut is a torque prevailing style nut(basically it distributes the torque properly) for mor consistent clamp load on the wheel bearing. The new nut is silver in color and the old nut is usually black in color. They have also lowered the torque on most all of the models. The original torque for many of these vehicles was 284 FT/Lbs. THey have dropped this torque to 173 Ft/Lbs, then they dropped it again down to 112-118 Ft/Lbs.
