Ok sound is ongoing and is a clicking sound on the driver side front wheel area ONLY! It only makes the clicking sound when I am turning right ... doesnt do it when turning left ...

The sound goes away if I take off the wheel and put it back on and re torque the lugs ... totally gone !

But then a week or two goes by and it comes back again ...

Take the wheel off again .. put it right back on and re torque and boom gone again ... for a couple weeks ...

Tech at Nissan said this is normal like wtf? My 100k dollar car makes an incurable clicking sound ??

This isnt like a normal clunk or bang that the GTR makes ...

Oh yea and wheels are stock with original run flats ...

Anybody have this issue and figure out how to stop it ??

???????

Sure it’s just not the floating rotors ? If that’s the noise tech is correct. When you take the rims off and req re-torque, check the mating surface of the wheel to the hub. Wire brush off the dirt, rust, etc. Years past and that solved the clicking if it’s not just the floating rotors.

Ya I hear ya ... if its the rotors it would be sound on both sides yea ? I only get it on drivers side when turning right ... never on passenger side ... or completely silent when turning left regardless of driver or passenger ...

And when I take wheel off and put it back on ...sound goes away ..

Would the compression of the wheel to the hub after re install adds affect the rotor ?

The tech was saying the same thing about hitting it with the wire brush on the mating surface of wheel to hub but he also said the sound is going to come back and then I need to rinse and repeat ...

I was looking for a more permanent solution so I dont become a part time wheel/ tire removal technician 🤣🤣

Nope can be one side or both or neither. It is hit or miss. Depends on the day lol. They click on my other cars too intermittently. Tq them down to spec - stock lugs ? Iâd bet hitting them with a wire brush will resolve the issue. Stock rims ? I do not recall having this issue with Advan and Volk Te37 SL or Sagas. Could be a stock rim issue ? Obviously check the hardware for the calipers and make sure boots are not torn.

Scroll down to annoying sound #4:

http://gtrtech.blogs...m/p/brakes.html

 

There are a few threads on here and heritage about the annoying clicking sound while turning.

 

FWIW, if it were the hardware on the floating rotors, it would / should be more noticeable when the rotors are cold, then go away as they heat up.

Thanks drop ... will check it out but I am 99% sure boots are good car only has 9k miles on it and i peeked at them when doing mid pipe / exhaust install while under the car a couple weeks ago ...

I am about to install my advans when they arrive in a couple weeks maybe I will wait until then also to see if it remedies the issue 👍🏻

I think sound number 4 is EXACTLY whats happening makes complete sense ...

Thanks big C ..

Im also guilty of washing the car 3-4 times a month .. and it sits all week long as I commute to work in my sweet ass Prius ...so I only drive the GTR on the weekends ...
So rust build up is guaranteed ...

Seeing as how these steps involve removal of most brake components ... i may even wait until my first rotor / pad upgrade and do it then 👍🏻👍🏻 I can tolerate the clicks until then ... I hope 😂😂

^ Yes, its a pain to do if you don't have a place to tool on your car for a few hours.  Not particularly hard, but its the type of job that'll make you want to take a few beer breaks.

 

I didn't hear the clicking all the time...it seemed to come and go with the temperature.  YMMV.
