Hello all,
Yesterday I thread jacked about a possible buggered front n/s wheel bearing on my '08 Note.

Took it into my friendly local Nissan dealer (
) who were fantastic and able to see it there and then, despite being a little busy.



A technician came out for a quick spin with me and agreed it was probably a wheel bearing after s feww hundred yds. We returned and he said it get it on a ramp when one became available. Fast forward 15 minutes and he escorted me through to see the problem.



Basically all three normal wheel bolts were finger loose! Only the locking wheel nut was actually done up tight. Needless to say I was flabbergasted and relived the whole bloody wheel hadn't shot off! The other technician seemed to think whoever did the brakes hadn't done them up tight enough, but nothing has been done to the car since we bought it late January (when it had new discs / pads installed prior to purchase). I can't believe it's been tampered with, so I guess it's just been fortunate not to have done any harm; not even the alloy or the bolts have been damaged.



Taught em something there though, don't take anything for granted and check everything!
