Hi kenithfrank,
Engage the park brake and chock the front wheels....jack up the back of the car and place it on chassis stands....release the parking brake.... Take hold hold of the wheel, top and bottom and moving it in and out, try to determine where the play is coming from.... Get a friend to help you, as you'll have to go underneath AND THIS YOU DON'T DO ALONE.....as your friend moves the wheel in and out, check the shock absorber mounting, where it fits onto the stub axle....You may find that it's become loose....If the problem is not there you'll have to move higher up the shock....Examine the strut for signs of leakage, if there is, you;ll need to replace both rear shocks.....If the problem is not there, you'll have to inspect the bushes for the rear suspension.....

If you need more help, let me know....

Best regards Johngee10

A growling sound from the rear of the car. It gets louder with increase in speed. Is it a rear wheel hub bearing?


It is either the wheel bearing or the brakes.

A good way to test is to lift the rear of the car with a floor jack and grab the tire and try to rock it back and forth. If there is movement in the tire, then it is for sure the bearing. If it dont rock then your brake pads probably have been consumed and need to have new pads installed.

Both should be able to be repalced in your garage with basic hand tools if your up for it. The parts are available at your local Napa, Carquest, champion ect... for not too much money.

Good Luck

Rear axel very slight movment up down in and out is this normal or are the bearings shot no noise when driving


There is some normal movement upand down out towards the wheel because the axle slids in and out of the bearing. The bearing is not a press fit type.The in and out movement is normal because the axle is held in by a C clip at the carrier assembly.

I think my front wheel bearings may be bad, what are some of the signs when this happens?


Noise. Drive at walking-pace along a quiet street, & listen at each side-window in turn. One side will always fail before the other, giving a rumbling sound on one side. Are yr wheel-nuts tight, front & rear? Jack up the front of the car. Spin each wheel. There should be no noise or roughness, apart from maybe a slight shh noise from the brake. Hold the road-wheel at top & bottom & try to shake it. Movement could be wheel -bearing or suspension wear. Look at or put your thumb against the various joints while an assistant rocks the wheel. Don't get under a car unless it's rock-solid.

Pulsation in brake pedal and rear end hops during braking


What happens is if you have a bad front wheel bearing when you brake that wheel will turn in or out,when this happens it throws the four wheel alignment out and since this is a solid rear axle,it's forcing it to flex on the suspension,wich could cause the rear tires to bite on the outside edge of one tire and the inside edge of the other,thats one possible the other would be that the rear brakes are are not slowing the wheels evenly causing the same issue.I saw this problem with a bad front wheel bearing on a Nissan Pathfinder but not as pronouced due to the independent rear suspension. Check the front wheel bearings,which of course will mean getting the calipers off the rotors,and then check for any movement in the rotor,if there is check the hub nut,if it's loose tighten it and check for play in the rotor if there is still play that's going to be caused by a bad bearing.You can check the braking in the rear with a simple spring scale(like the ones used for fishing),with the wheels removed have someone apply enough pedal pressure to just engage the brakes but still allow movement attach the scale hook to a wheel stud and pull until it starts to move and note how many pounds of pressure it takes to move the hub.If it's uneven chech your adjusters and even them if needed and then retest,if still uneven you'll need to bleed them again.As far as the dark black substance in the fluid I would say you may gotten a contaminent in the fluid.Brake fluid gets kind of a rusty reddish residue when it breaks down.If I missed anything or you need clarification don't hesitate to ask I'm home all day.Hope this helps solve your problem.

How do you change rear wheel bearing on a 2004 nissan sentra


Yes it is as easy as it looks. If you had the tire off and figured out that it looks easy, you shouldn't have much problem.

Rumblig and rattling sound ( sound like " DUK DUK DUK") on the steering wheel


First if the humming sound gets faster and slower as you go faster or slower yes I would say it is a wheel bearing.Second thing if you on the out side of the car rock the car side to side and hear the same noise have someone look at each sway bar link(the piece that attaches the bar to the suspension)to see for movement at each end of each link.the movment if found will let you know which one to replace.If no movment at the links check the ruber mounts that attatch the bar to the body or frame of the car for up and down movement.
