MO Dale, Are the felt strips that you used self-adhesive??
Also, anyone noticed how the top of the door(top of window frame gives in when you push on it from the outside?? I was driving the other night and had my fingers up between the door frame(above window) and the body of the car, when going over bumps you can really feel the top of the door moving in and out almost to a point where it will pinch your fingers. I was wondering if this could be the cause of some of the rattles???
No adhesive, but that would certainly eliminate the possibility of the felt ever moving out of place.
The felt I used was purchased at JoAnn's craft store. It's approximately a 9x12" sheet. I just cut a strip for each door and folded over the edge of a credit card to insert it, so that it is mostly doubled over.
I have noticed the movement between the door and body. Initially, I had wondered about the squeaks coming from there. But, the felt inserted at the door panel has proved otherwise for me.
A chilly 17 degrees F this morning and no squeaks from the doors during my morning commute.
Excellent info, everyone! I'll use it to pinpoint the many rattles in my new Mo. AND, I'll be waiting for warmer weather. Maybe everything will expand enough to stop the rattling.
Has anyone ever had a rattle (a different sound than the normal metallic-type rattle) in their shifter console panel? I thought it was the cell phone holder lid or the change holder lid, or the cupholder lid, but nope, it's my actual flat shifter console. Only when applying pressure to it while driving with my hand, does this rattle cease. Should I take it in and ask to have them remove and re-install the panel? I LOATHE my dealer, so if I can do it myself (or find a trusty friend), I can try!
Hi, I have an 04 and there is NO rattles in the shifter console, none in the dash area but plenty in the front door panels. They do go away in the summer time. I have bought lots of felt and foam tape but hadnt tried fixing it yet. Dealer tried 3 times with no luck.
I would take yours back and let the dealer look at it, sounds like something simple.
This has got to be my last remaining complaint about the Murano. I have the loud TICK noise from somewhere around the passenger door. I've used felt, foam, grease, etc. to try to get rid of the tick. No luck so far. Its gotten so bad that it doesn't matter whether its warm or cold, the tick is still there. I rode around last weekend with my wife driving to try to isolate the location. Although I had suspected the passenger front door panel, I distinctly heard the tick in the upper portion of the B-pillar. I think I'll take that apart this weekend and have a look to see what could be causing this. Anyone else got any suggestions? But for the tick, I would actually be satisfied with my 04 SE AWD. If I can't find it, I don't know if I'll put up with it for long! If I end up selling the Murano, you can bet it will be replaced by a NON-Nissan vehicle!
I had the same problem in my '04 MO. I took it back to the dealer over a year ago and they did the "fix" that Nissan had at that time and it did not work. However, I took it back two weeks ago and they fixed it! I'm not sure what they did but no more clicks! Heavenly!
Update on my "tick" issue. The dealer service manager heard the tick and confirmed a problem. That was the first visit. They isolated the noise (with my help) to the roof area near the B-Pillar (wasn't the door after all). They tore down the headliner and realized they needed to order new sunroof trim. They gave me back the car with the tick, minus the sunroof trim. Made an appointment when the new trim came in. Again, they took apart the headliner, but realized the sunroof trim part was the wrong one and had to reorder. So now I'm waiting for the new part. Still have the tick. The only progress so far is that they "think" it was something to do with the side curtain airbag components. The plan is to take it apart completely (the side curtain airbag), reassemble and put in the trim when that part arrives supposedly this week.
Interesting and upsetting. So I had the TSB NTB03-109 applied to both doors to fix the door skin tick (tic) so the service invoice read. Well after about a month the tic was back. Having obtained a copy of the TSB online, I decided to take the door apart myself and have a closer look. Turns out they did apply some of the felt repairs to the underside and even reglued one of the main foam blocks as instructed in the TSB. Sad thing is they didn't cover at least 50% of the TSB's instruction. Obviously I picked up the work where the dealer got lazy. (No excuse to not follow the entire bulletin as recommended) I finished applying felt to the remaining key points of contact under door skin as instructed. I still haven't test driven to see if the tic has been eliminated, but I can surely understand why it hadn't been to this point. The passanger door will come of next to see what they did or didn't do under that side.
Got a call from the dealer today and they fixed the problem.
As noted in earlier replies, I have been having a loud tick noise from the B-Pillar/headliner area - typically on bumpy roads or any area where the vehicle experiences body flex. The dealer had to replace the sunroof trim as part of the service (twice ordered due to parts mix ups - I suspect the technician damaged the original trim during tear down and had to order a new one). Well, the correct trim replacement part came in last week and the Murano was in the shop today.
Picked it up this evening and glory be - no tick! Apparently, they got it. This is what the service report noted:
"Customer states that there is a tciking (sic) noise from headliner. Body bolts loose. Road test and inspect vehicle. Found noise coming from ride side B Piller (sic) area at side airbag. Remove headliner and door panel. Remove passengers side seat belt cover and found loose body bolts causing tick. Remove and resecure bolts. Reinstall door panel and headliner. Roadtest. OK"
So that's it for my ticking issues (I HOPE!). Maybe now I can finally enjoy the Murano in peace and quiet!
On my 06 Murano, I also had a rattling noise whenever the vehicle drove over uneven surfaces. The sound appeared to be coming from the hatch area. What seemed to work is the adjustment on the rubber-stop for the rear-hatch. It is the round rubber thing located on the hatch, about at the halfway mark. I adjusted it short by turning it clockwise after loosening the locking adjustment nut.
Here's a new one! Twice now I've gone out into the garage in the morning and found both front windows all the way down. They were up when I parked it for the night. Anybody had that happen? Sure wouldn't want to find that in a hotel parking lot in the morning!
So first the background.. We bought our 2010 murano SL in 2013 with 38k miles, it now has 73k. We haven't had a single problem with it until now.
On a recent road trip, in the blazing Texas heat, our a/c started blowing hot. So a few miles down the road we stop and I pop the hood, and see the...
I am hoping someone can help with an A/C problem I am having. The A/C stopped blowing cold air and based on research and trouble-shooting, I have determined the A/C clutch is not operating properly. I checked the fuse and it's good. I disconnected the power feed to the magnetic clutch...
My 2017 platinum Murano is about 9 months old. Recently, I have been having a problem where a message keeps popping up that says I “Unavailable Front Radar Obstruction.” The problem happens while on the highway when either the car in front of me switches lanes or I switch lanes while a car...
My 2009 Nissan Murano LE has 180,000 miles. I bought it used with 170,000 miles. Now my transmission is failing. I get stuck on hills. It is sometimes scary as I have to roll back,... My "Service Engine Soon" light comes off and on. The auto repair shop says I need a NEW transmission at $4,000...
