    Had identical problem but you might want to get an honest answer from a real mechanic.  Turns out that Nissan is having big issues with the 05 rear and was recalled.  Mine was full of metal and is being replaced.
    The front propeller shaft apparently went bad as well so my entire truck was shaking.  One dealer told me my tires needed to be replaced due to cupping from bad alignment.  Right on, buddy!

Very common problem. This piece is covered by Nissan for 60000 miles or 5 years. And its most likely one of the front u-joints that failed.

2005 Ford ranger fx4 transfer case is banging like chain is jumping, replaced transfer case still bangs. Cvc joints ok, differentials ok, rear shaft ok front shaft seems ok. Shift motor seems ok!


If this is a new vehicle to you someone may have put the wrong gear in one end of the vehicle. Also check tire and rims that must be the same front and rear or the travel per revolution of each axle must be the same. Go to discounttire,com and use their tools to find the circumference of the tires.

I am working on a 2005 Nissan murano passenger side cv joint axle removal. I have taken out the three bolts that hold the shaft into the transmission. I can not get the shaft out. Please help


Ok, go to your local auto parts store, rent an axle puller, or you can try a prybar.
The axle puller is a safer way to go. It looks like a dent puller or slap hammer.
Good Luck

Most center bearings require that you disassemble the center flex joint, then remove bearing from the shaft which on some requires use of a press or some type of puller.

1991 toyota pick up makes a weird sound when i drive


The proplem with your car is the propellr shaft universal joint and possibly the rear wheel bearing. Get the mechanic to help you check your propeller universal joint and your rea wheel bearing. A defective propeller universal joint is very risky and if it pulls, this might cause fatal accident. I wish you the best.
