This seems a permenant fix - several years at least. It is of course a good idea to use a high quality (perhaps marine) axle grease.

I'm going to give this a go soon. Just wondering what sized split pins I will need as I'm planning to put new ones in?

Thanks in advance

Anyone around the South Coast/Dorset area had this done? I want to find a garage to do it and can't be bothered trying to explain it to the usual blank faces at most garages down here!

Maybe just print out the guide - its very simple - 1 hours labour at the very tops

You sure its not an absence of shims and/or suitable grease on the rear of the pads/shims?

Well they greased the pads to the max, the screech wouldnt go, he even tried some fancy machining of the pads as he does motorsport, didnt work, now have Brembo pads fitted, there's still a very slight screech on slowing whilst turning.

 

The click fix didnt totally work, i'd say its 50% better, only clicks on acceleration now, so probably have a dodgy CV joint too, he's going to re-grease it for me next visit, see if that works for now.

Finally got round to doing this, cured the noise 100% as soon as I did it!

Its surprising how happy getting rid of this noise has made me ( very sad I know) also not sure if it's in my head but also feels like it runs better too :D

I tried the other 'quick' fix today, got the CV boot(s) off, the joints were pretty much bone dry...so completely re-packed with grease...and......still clicks ....just a lot quieter now they are covered in the slippery stuff....so looks like i'll have to go the replacement route at some point!

I seem to remember reading an article on this very subject on an Australian 350 forum about 18 months ago.

tried to find it again but can't.

The opinion was that there was not enough grease applied whilst under manufacture!!

I agree and the reason I know was I had the same problem with my Nissan Pathfinder.

And came across the thread whilst searching for a solution.

Acording to the Aussies it was on 3 vehicles. Zed, X trail and Pathfinder!

Like you say, " Very un Japanese" !

On the Pathfinder they were just basically undoing the castlenut and stuffing grease or copperslip in.

Anyway I did what they suggested and the tick tick went away.

best the local Nissan dealership could do was spray WD40 all over the place.

Very imaginative!

WD40 doesnt do diddly! why do people still see that stuff as treatment for anything other than WATER DISPERSANT !!

 

We know that, but its what Nissan dealers use in South West London when they have not got a clue and pray it stops the squeek of click long enough for the customer (Mug) to get off the forcourt and home b4 the noise returns!

:headhurt:

 

However its great for cleaning the crap off black exterior trim:)~
