Having problems with your 2003 Nissan Altima ?
I am not sure I detected anything until I sent my car to the dealer for State inspections services and the mechanic told me I needed rear wheel bearings which would cost me a whopping $640! in order to pass inspection. Is that true and can I order the parts myself cheaper?
The maximum wheel bearing end play is .040in so if there is to much end play that is why you failed the inspection. you can replace them yourself with just some basic hand tools it is not easy ( if it were easy everyone would do it ) but it is do-able. the bearings cost $184.52 ( retail ) at NAPA ( part # PBR 930362 ) if you think you want to try it yourself let me know and i can get you the procedure and torke spec.
Seems a lot of money for 2or 4 small bearings
