Nissan Rogue Service Manual: Periodic maintenance




Check the conditions (looseness, backlash) of each component. Verify the component conditions (wear, damage) are normal.

Ball Joint Axial End Play

  1.  Set front wheels in a straight-ahead position.
  2.  Move axle side of transverse link, and check the axial end play by moving the transverse link up and down.

Ball Joint Axial End Play

Axial end play : Refer to FSU-26, "Ball Joint".



Check for oil leakage and damage. Replace if necessary.




WARNING: Always adjust the wheel alignment with the vehicle on a flat surface.

NOTE: If the wheel alignment is out of specifaction, inspect and replace any damaged or worn rear suspension parts before making any adjustments.

Check the following:

  1.  Check and adjust the wheel alignment with the vehicle under unladen conditions. “Unladen conditions” means that the fuel, engine coolant, and lubricants are full; the spare tire, jack, hand tools and mats are in designated positions.
  2.  Check the tires for incorrect air pressure and excessive wear. Refer to WT-65, "Tire Air Pressure".
  3. Check the wheels for run out and damage. Refer to WT-56, "Inspection".
  4.  Check the wheel bearing axial end play. Refer to FAX-7, "Inspection" (FWD), or FAX-38, "Inspection" (AWD).
  5. Check the shock absorbers for leaks or damage.
  6. Check each mounting point of the suspension components for any excessive looseness or damage.
  7. Check each link, arm, and the suspension member for any damage.
  8. Check the vehicle height. Refer to FSU-26, "Wheelarch Height (Unladen*)".



IMPORTANT: Use only the alignment specifications listed in this Service Manual. Refer to FSU-26, "Wheel Alignment (Unladen*1)".

NOTE: Do not use the “Rolling Compensation” method if you are using sensor-type alignment equipment.

Last line



Measure the total toe-in using the following procedure.


  1.  Bounce the front of vehicle up and down to stabilize the vehicle height (posture).
  2.  Push on the rear wheel to move the vehicle straight ahead about 5 m (16 ft).
  3.  Put a mark on base line of the tread (rear side) of both tires at the same height of hub center. These are measuring points.

Total toe-in inspection

  1. Measure the distance (A) from the rear side.
  2.  Push on the rear wheel to move the vehicle slowly ahead and to rotate the wheels 180 degrees (1/2 turn).

    CAUTION: If the wheels have rotated more than 180 degrees (1/2 turn), try the above procedure again from the beginning. Do not push vehicle backward.

  3.  Measure the distance (B) from the front side.

Total toe-in inspection

  1. Use the formula below to calculate total toe-in.

Total toe-in : A - B
Total toe-in specification : Refer to FSU-26, "Wheel Alignment (Unladen*1)".



Toe-in : Refer to FSU-26, "Wheel Alignment (Unladen* 1)".
