    Good morning everyone, Yesterday I google searched re-gearing Xterra threads and found some dated back from 2015 & 2017 in this forum. My neighbor told me it will come cheaper if I regear my C200 rear diff on Xterra 2012 SV rather than swapping a M226 rear diff and install AirLock as well...

    So I was away for a few months on a trip, when I get back my gf who's been driving the X while I'm gone mentions it's 'whining' from the back above 40mph. I felt a sinking feeling in my wallet. All I can say is I'm lucky I caught it in the parking garage instead of the highway.

    Prepping to change all my fluids before hauling a trailer up & over the CO Rockies, but the instructions for the rear diff have me stumped. While the manual is very clear that oil should come up to the level of the filler opening for the Tcase & front final drive, all it gives for the M226 is...

    Not my video. Just found it browsing.

    I’m a first-timer at replacing differential oil and transfer fluid. Everything went smoothly and was pretty straightforward, but my question is about the fill level on the rear. The FSM shows both front diff and transfer being filled all the way up to the bottom of the filler holes, but for the...

    Hello, I just recently purchased my first X (08, 4WD, 190k miles). Everything seems solid other than the notorious vibrating idle (haven't been to Nissan to attempt idle air volume relearn yet) And this annoying "whine" under light acceleration. While I'm by no means a master tech, I was a tech...

    Hey folks! I'm trying really hard to find a source for a lubelocker gasket (for M226) in Canada. Does anyone know where I can find this? I've messaged ORG for a shipping quote but I'd prefer to find one locally to potentially save on shipping (and get it faster maybe). Thanks -

    All, Just about finished my daughters 06 X and plan to start working on my 05 OR. Came across this and wanted to know from the experts if this is a fair price for these parts from a 2017 Titan? thanks for the advice. JD

    Looking to buy an m226 rear end. I have an 07 Non offroad, Manual, 4x4 model and the rear end is whining pretty bad. I've been searching for a while now and can't seem to find anything

    Hey all, new to the community and have been searching the forums but can’t find my exact problem. So I hear some grinding going on, I thought brakes, but no they’re fine. Take it to a local shop, they say I need to replace the rear differential. I ask them if there is any shavings in the fluid...

    I've been looking at buying a 2006 Xterra Offroad version that does not have the switches for electronic locking rear diff and hill descent control. I thought these were standard. Am I missing something, or has it been re-badged?
