    Problem with auto locking hubs on a 2002 xterra

    Wife has a 2002 sc and I just replaced the right front wheel bearings. We ran into some complications through the process, but got it all back together. Now I have a problem somewhere in the auto locking hub. The hub is making a rotational clicking sound while driving in 2wd that I think is the hub trying to lock itself. The sound goes away when I put it in 4x4. I think we screwed up somewhere, but I am out of ideas on what to do. Any thoughts or ideas would be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    They aren't auto locking. They're slug drive. If it's clicking something is wrong and you need to retrace your steps.

    When one of the hubs is clicking, it usually indicates that there is a problem with the opposite side hub. Take the outer hub off, the part that is held in by the 6 allen bolts, and re-install it. Don't force it on, it should slide on easily all the way to the mating surface. If it doesn't go all the way on,take it off, rotate it a bit, and slide it back on. They should go on with no effort, and the allen bolts don't need to be super tight.

    Sandor is definitely the go to guy for your Nissan questions. Your wife may also want to sign up with the Canadian Nissan Truck Club ( CNTC ) as well. Good luck with the repair.

    I took it all apart again and replaced the hub with used one. That fixed the problem. Thanks for the info.
