But I'll leave it at, you're an idiot, you're responsible for cleaning your own vehicle even underneath and we can go from there. I have a 2008 Nissan Xterra Off Road Automatic and the right rear axle seal is leaking. What's included in our kit: 7 Feet of thick wall reinforced high quality rubber hose 1 Stainless steel barb fitting. You know, if I were you, I would have stopped going there after the second problem I had with them. I wonder which factory Psychomut works at.
Plastic filter folk: The filter is designed to fit 2 hoses sizes. If you are going to check the pinion bearing then you will have to remove the other axle so yes you should replace that seal and bearing while you are in there. It sure drives good and looks good, and I'm not going to beat it, so what to expect, too many of you must have positive remarks about the Xterra??? Anything else I should check or inspect while Im doing this service? The pads on the front had worn a lot due to the over compensating for the rear not working at all. So if you have a concern, treat them like you'd want to be treated and they'll treat you right. I know it cost more. I love my truck on paper, and the rare times there isn't some kind of dashboard light on.
Wondering if this will happen again. It can get particularly nasty on this board when you start something. If a mechanic looks at your rig, under warranty, and does not fix anything, he doesn't get paid. The Pinion seal was just the last straw! You started it, hope you have your flame-resistant suit on. The fluid and differential breather should also be replaced. You shouldn't have to do that. You want to create a water tight seal.
I'm not saying you have to bribe them. Oh yeah before you start insulting my country now? Should I also replace the driver's side axle assembly while I'm at it? I told them to go fly a kite after having many words with the service manager. You listed 5 problems, besides the real seal, that you had with that dealership. Remove the parking brake assembly from the back plate and torque member. I don't mean to offend any of the other hicks on this site, just the one that insults strangers behind the safety of a keyboard.
This will reduce the restriction and allow air to flow more freely. I am looking into legal recourse, as I have found out that overfilling the diff would cause the seal to blow. Isn't it nice to be appreciated once in a while? The 3rd clamp is so you can put the filter in-line of your hose should you choose. Go buy yourself a Range Rover. I guess they plugged the vent with something!!! Draw the axle shaft assembly out of the axle case using Tools as shown.
Some of us park in filthy undergrounds during the week, and unlike you I don't like to play like a pig in mud. You will be able to see if there is damage when you get the old seal and bearing off. Gee for a stealership this scenario is like christmas. I paid for the rental car myself, out of my own pocket. We are using the larger hoses type so you should cut off the smaller tapered end of the filter.
Went to change the rear differential fluid on our 2005 Nissan Xterra, and noticed the fluid was low. If you over tighten the fitting you could snap it off in your axle. I want to love my truck but bad experiences have decided otherwise. Remove the grease catcher from the axle shaft. Don't want the dealership to hose me into tons of money. In fact I had to degrease my rear window more than once from a greasy film.
We live in a very snowy spot in Colorado. Apply a constant pressure on the slide hammer while turning the slide hammer 180 degrees periodically while pulling the axle oil seal out. I expect when I pay a reasonably significant amount of my income on a vehicle. I am looking into legal recourse, as I have found out that overfilling the diff would cause the seal to blow. I didn't start the insults here, but i can keep going eh! If it was my vehicle I would do the bearings and seals, not the entire axle assembly. Remove the wheel studs using a suitable hammer or press. Bingo-hopefully for your sake I just got a lemon.
