1990 Nissan Stanza Repair Question
Nissan Stanza Steering Problem
I believe something was not done correctly.
WHEEL BEARING R & I (STANZA)
1. Remove hub and steering knuckle assembly. Place assembly in a vise. Drive hub and inner bearing from steering knuckle. See Fig. 8 . Using a 2-jaw type puller, remove inner bearing from hub. Remove outer grease seal.
2. Remove inner grease seal from steering knuckle. Remove inner and outer snap rings. Remove outer bearing. Press bearing race out of steering knuckle (through back side).
1. Install outer snap ring into steering knuckle. Press bearing race into steering knuckle. Coat inner and outer bearings with multipurpose grease. Install inner snap ring into steering knuckle. Install inner and outer bearings.
2. Install outer grease seal. Carefully press hub into steering knuckle. DO NOT apply greater than 3.3 tons of pressure. Check wheel bearing preload. To complete installation, reverse removal procedure.
The axle shaft lock nut should be torqued to 174-231 ft.lbs.
I agree but IM female so please break it down for me just what would cause. It to tighten up but then loosen again vertically and horizontally while just driving around the block
How did you tighten the axle shaft lock nut, the big one in center of hub?
I believe they just used plyers but the wheel was tight before they let Jack down i checked it then i rode around the block and come back jacked it up and. It was loose again
I mentioned it needs to be torqued at 174 - 231 ft lbs. Pliers? Either I understand this system wrongly or you have the wrong guy doing the job. Improper torquing would result in damage to the bearings as the nut is not holding the bearing correctly.
To be sure I understand the problem correctly, send me a picture of the hub with the center nut.
Here is a video and i thank-you so much for helping me
Truely Donna IM sorry it didn't. Let me send video let me go take tire off and get pic
Yes, the central nut has to be torqued correctly and i believe that is the cause of the problem, improper torquing.
OK i know this sounds stupid but how do you. Torque and what do i use to do it
For proper torquing, a torque wrench is required but most people would either use an air impact wrench or get someone to depress the brakes while you use a breaker bar to tighten the bolt.
