Since I'm on vacation I decided to have a few noise problems fixed. I went to Gaithersburg Nissan today. They did a fantastic job. I've had nothing but good experiences there, with my previous Nissan (Maxima). Since I bought my Altima at VOB Nissan, I took it there for the first year and they really were terrible. I won't go into the various stories. They said they couldn't hear the problem. Gaithersburg heard the rattle and fixed it. No questions asked.

1) My roof/headliner was still rattling, even after I stuffed foam in it a few months ago. Fixed.

2) Metallic clicking noise near my front wheel. Fixed. Apparently a piece of metal was in my tread.

3) Clicking noise with my brake pedal. Kit ordered (per Technical Service Bulletin) and will come in next week.

My Altima is a lot more enjoyable now.

Oh yeah!? Dude, i got a stupid intermittent problem. during the west minster speed show, I blew a fuse for the ctr console plug (stupid inveter blew up). Anyway, The center dome light (after the fuse was replaced) intermittently goes on. It's strange! one time it went on when i turned the front dome light on!! I'm taking it in today to get it looked at!

Do a search...

I read about someone who had a dome light rattle and fixed it by pulling it out and taping a wire down and sticking a little padding behinde the actual light. Search it out and you'll see it. I also think there's a TSB on this. Search for them also...

Re: headliner/dome light rattle

They said some wire was rattling against the roof. They insulated the wire and it took care of it. I had already done the foam fix many months ago. I was one of the first to figure this out. That helped, but I didn't insulate the wire.

dome light area rattle...

Already tried foam behind the dome light! REMEMBER-the dome light gets VERY HOT! Be carefull what you put up there, it did not solve the problem for me either. Also slid some foam on the dome light harness side (LH) and it did no good either :(

Will work on this over the LOOOOOONG holiday weekend and advise more.

How about your dealer? The TSB outlines how to fix it.

Paul,

I am not yet convinced they know how to speak english... :evil

BTW-it would sure be handy if I could give them the TSB number or a copy of it, save a lot of time. Any reference to it on the web?

Thanks! :)

um before u do this, stop the car, close all the windows. and see if you hear it? that click is teh shifter being released. it happens no matter what gear ur in. if thats not what your hearing, then yeah, maybe take it in
