#9 of 18 Rumbling noise in the rear when pulling into driveway
Aug 01, 2007 (2:11 pm)
I turned off TCS and it appears that the noise went away.
I turned on TCS and also did not hear the noise again.
So it is possible that turn TCS off and on reset something?
Thanks a lot for your help.

Yes, I think you reset it, it is probably just the TCS/stability control kicking in. Good luck!!

If the rumbling sound returns check my reply under "Nissan 350Z: Transmission Questions." The cause could be as simple as something loose in one of your storage compartments.

i have an 03 nissan. i like racing it but since i got it, it doesnt do any good. i hear a noise when i hit holes on the road like if something is loose. sounds like if the exhaust is hitting or if i have something in my trunk. but its none of those its been like tripled checked and like if it had a voodoo spell on it bcuz they cant find these annoying rattling sounds. my stock engine would do 14.5 seconds at quarter mile. i installed an hks ehaust, stainless steel headers, an AEM intake sytem and a high performance clutch kit. and now im doing 15 seconds when i should be like on the 13's or something lower than 14.5 of course. anyone can help? when im on idle theres a rattling sound. and at the rear end like if my exhaust rattles or if its shaking. i have warranty at the performance shop and everything was guranteed and double checked twice. what can i do? i cant blame it on the racing parts because it would do the same stock way b4 i got into racing. i just thought trying to modify it from stock would help. but i need help. i love my nissan and its really putting me down

hi, i have 2003 350z as well and i had the same problem, i did my homework and found that 2003-2005 Zs have a rear bearing problem. I had the right side done at 48k and now the left side is making the same noise. u need to have the bearings replaced in the rear axel. i suggest u replace both sides at the same time. the dealership wouldnt cover both sides at the time when it was under warrenty and now i to replace the drivers side myself. if u wanna comfirm u have the same problem. put ur in reverse, hold down the break firmly, and tap the gas, if u here the clicking noise this is ur problem. hope that helps...btw it cost a about 300 or so to get it fixed.

one other note i was online and found a tech forum for nissan, the tech is saying the axle needs to be greased. this what the tech says the repair is for clicking noises in the rear. from what i seen, u need take off the rear axle use a special grease and replace a flange and the hardware to the flange and then put it all back together.
#15 of 18 Noise from rear

Hello to all. Any advice would be appreciated. I am not at all mechanical. Mine is a 5 year old Roadster 46000 miles and I have been very pleased with the car. A noise has developed behind my left ear, i.e. to the rear centre of the car. A mechanical steady tone (bit like a buzz) has developed and can now be heard along with the normal lovely engine/exhaust noise. The noise increases in line with the speed of the car. Any thoughts please? Also, I'd like to sell the car at some point. Is there a market for them at the moment?

Odd, seems like VDC and antilock brakes kicking in. My car runs smoother when I turn of VDC and seems to seems happier once I switch it off then back on. I realize my car just makes a bunch of odd noises with it on, it has 37k on it. however back on topic.
I have a weird noise in the back of my car, it sounds like it's inside and it chirps like a cricket once every few days. Any ideas? I was hoping it was just a cricket but it seems to be something mechanical or piece of equipment.
#17 of 18 350Z Manual Trans noise
Jul 20, 2010 (6:46 am)
When I start my 2008 manual Z (and when it is not in gear), there is a whining noise which goes away when I depress the clutch. I took it to the dealer thinking it was an issue with the throw-out bearing and they listened and said that the noise was normal and was nothing to worry about. I find this hard to believe. Anyone else had the same issue?
