This bulletin applies to 2011-2014 Nissan Cube models. A clicking noise may be heard from the left or right front CV-type axles during takeoff/acceleration. The fix may simply involve applying Molykote M77 grease (P/N 44003-7S000) to the hub bearing surfaces.
1. Remove the front or rear wheel bearing cotter pin and lock nut from the axle. Do not remove the axle from the hub or transmission.
2. Push the axle back to allow grease application.
3. Apply a moderate coat of Molykote grease to the entire wheel hub bearing surface.
4. Install a new wheel bearing lock nut and new cotter pin. Refer to the service manual for torque specifications.
