Question 2014 Versa Note makes sound when turning.

Hello fellow Nissanians.

Since 2017 I'm a happy owner of a 2014 Nissan Versa Note. It's a plain as can be. No auto locks, no auto windows.
It has the 1.6L that has about 57k miles and has the automatic CV transmission.

Just recently it started making noise when turning. I took it to a Midas location and they said it's the "Drive Axle". The Midas person said it was hard to get a new one.
I've researched a bit and found These on Rock auto.
Front Right
Front Left
Person at Midas said that there's a bit of a difference in the appearance (specifically the front left one) and wasn't sure about the fit. However in a
I found, the replacement the person installs looks like the picture of the part from RockAuto.

I just wanted to see what you folks think.

Thank you all for your time.

with kind regards,

Jesse

That is definitely a CV Axle/half shaft that is being replaced. When they wear out, there is a clunking when turning while in motion. Most likely if you crawl under the vehicle you will see a split in one of the boots and grease will be slung all over the place.

Don't get remanufactured. If you buy from RockAuto or a local parts store, get new. Although they generally aren't the best quality since they are both made in China and remanufactured in China, it is worth the extra $10 or so to get a new one.

I've replaced a ton of them on various vehicles and they aren't too bad to do generally speaking.

Thank you very much for the reply.

I will go ahead and order both sides for the front axle from RockAuto then and have them install it, since I don't have space or tools to do so myself.

I appreciate your input.

with kind regards,

Jesse

Going to feel pretty bad if the noise is not axles as there are a variety of noises that can be other things.

Just for clarity too, the 'CV' transmission is actually a CVT and not to be confused with CV driveaxles. 2 different things.

Have them check the wheel bearings while the axles are out, it would be double stupid to do the axles without doing a bad wheel bearing which is often what your supposed 'noise' is.

Nissan has these Value Advantage parts which are more affordable.
I think I will go with those.

Thanks for the follow-up on how the repair went. It's seldom we really hear what happened with the problem.
