Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

When vehicle was taken for routine service, mechanic found that both rear axle seals were/had been leaking and likely to fail if not corrected. Mechanic advised very unusual for failure at such low mileage and age of vehicle. Vehicle had recently been serviced by dealer at scheduled warranty check where seals were reported to have been inspected.

Titan 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 34,206 miles
I purchased this 2005 Nissan Titan new. During a recent oil change and service at 34,150 miles I noticed fluid leaking onto the both sides of the rear brake rotor assemblies. At first I thought it was brake fluid but upon closer examination I discovered it was gear lube from the rear axle. It was leaking past the seals and down the backing plates and dripping onto the wheel and some of that oil being slung onto the brake rotors themselves. I stopped driving the truck since I felt this is now a safety issue and called the dealer. They advised me to bring truck in for inspection which I did on 1/3/08 at 34,206 miles. They confirmed seals are leaking and ordered parts. I asked them to make a note on the service order that I have stopped driving truck unless needed. They then called and told me parts are in and truck was brought in for repair on 1/14/08 at 34,361 miles. The parts that were replaced under warranty are as follows; qty-2 P/N:43070-7S200 axle spacer, qty-2 P/N:40210-7S210 rear bearing, qty-2 P/N:43252-7S200 oil seal, qty-2 P/N:01541-0001U snap-ring and qty-1 999mp-df100P synthetic diff fluid. I am very happy that Nissan repaired and covered this under warranty. But, I am very disappointed that this type of failure occured at such low mileage.

I have a Nissan Titan and the other day I was taking off my receiver hitch when I noticed that my rear axle seal was leaking bad, but it has not been leaking for long cause I checked it out the week before. I have to take it in and see what the Nissan dealer says.

2005 Nissan Titan left rear axle seal failure. On the morning of 8-21-2007 I noticed oil inside my left rear wheel. I climbed under the truck and could see clearly where it had leaked out the end of the axle. The previous day I had been traveling back to my home from a 6 hour trip. I filled up with gas about 3 hours away from home-I did not see any oil in rear wheel (gas cap is next to wheel). Problem had to happen after fill-up-this is a major problem because I was traveling at night,70 mph on interstate. If all fluid had of leaked out, that could be catastrophic at that time. Also I do not think that it is safe for diff oil to be leaking on rear brake disks. I know that Nissan is having problems with these seals on Titan trucks and think they should be made to come up with a lasting repair before somebody gets killed or injured. My local dealer replaced the leaking seal.
