    Remember why I am doing this is to save money not to possess all the tools that are not commonly used. I had a clunk on my right front and turned out the dealership forgot to tighten the swaybar link when changing the strut under warranty. Also as you can see, my driver side outer tie rod boot was torn. It souded like it was coming from further under the car and I am still waking up so I didn't crawl under there to check it out, I will look more and report back.

    Facebook Google Remember Me? Reply Page 1 of 2 1 2. Hello Nissan folks, I am going to post a thread about how to replace 06 Altima 2. I am a novice but with lots of internet research and effort, I finally made it without a mistake.

    I am sorry that I was only able to upload five images here. I think this is because of some kind of restriction on a new member. By doing this job, you can also replace brake pads, disk rotor, outer and inner tie rods, wheel hub, wheel bearing, steering knuckle, transverse link low control arm including low ball joint, shock absorber strut and even drive shaft cv axle as well.

    Work at your own risk! Always doublecheck your jack and jack stand to prevent your vehicle from falling. As you all know, jack the vehicle and brace the vehicle with a jack stand to support it more safely.

    Loosen five 21 mm wheel nuts and remove the tire. Put the tire underneath the vehicle to brace the vehicle. Now loosen two 14 mm bolts holding the caliper and remove the brake pads and caliper from the torque member where the caliper sits on. I want to suppose that you know all the procedure above. Removing the caliper and brake pads is not a difficut job.

    But be very careful with the brake line. Hang the caliper on the suspension spring with bungee cords and make sure the brake line is not twisted.

    Otherwise, it may cause a costly repair. I can not stress enough on this step since the brake line leakage is such a critical issue. Double or triple check is requied!! Now locate two 19 mm torque member bots and remove them. Then, you can remove the torque member and the rotor. When I did the job, the rotor did not come off right away so I used the rubber mallet to take it out. Hit around the center not the rotor disc surface.

    Remove the cotter pin which is fitted into the hole on the end of the drive shaft and use an air impact wrench to loosen the 32 mm axle nut and take it out of the drive shaft. Locate the cotter pin and the 19 mm tie rod nut and remove both. When you are done, you may need to strike the matal part of the knuckle assembly with a hammer in order to separate the rod from the knuckle unless you already have a special tie rod removal tool.

    Remember why I am doing this is to save money not to possess all the tools that are not commonly used. Therefore, hammering should be fair for this case. Only hit the matal part of the knuckle where the tie rod bolt fits into. After you remove the tie rod, do not turn the steering wheel to either direction or the vehicle steering could be out of center.

    Also as you can see, my driver side outer tie rod boot was torn. I did not have time to replace the rod at the moment so if you see that yours is torn, you should buy the rod and replace the bearing and the rod at once since they both require wheel alignment service.
