Well, this turned out to be almost a disaster had I not had a after market warranty. Dealer f'd up my axle by not putting enough fluid back in. Said I had too much fluid due to my after market rear diff cover which they said caused the seals to leak because it plugged my breather. BS, I checked the breather and it wasn't plugged. Besides, there are many xterras out there with this issue thus the reason Nissan issued a TSB. Duh!
So, not enough fluid destroyed the pinion bearing and ring gear. I had to have a new axle put in. I'm done with dealers. A bunch of f'ing idiots. My aftermarket warranty saved me $3,000!
If that was not enough, Nissan charges $3k for a REBUILT axle or $3.3k for a new one. Nissan go F u c k yourself. Unreal.
My shop wanted to rebuild it but Nissan won't sell the parts. My guy says he's never seen an axle in all his years that couldn't be rebuilt! Junk.
