2010 Nissan Murano Problems

Failing Engine Mounts Will Cause Thumping in Floor

A thumping heard and felt in the floor is often caused by failing engine mounts. A failing mount allows too much movement of the engine, and will require replacement.

Damaged Seat Adjuster Assembly May Cause Noise/Rocking Movement

A damaged or broken seat adjuster assembly on the seat bottom can cause the seat to rock back and forth and possibly squeak. It can also cause the seat to not adjust forward or backward, or up and down.

Liftgate Rattles and Cannot Latch

The screws that secure the striker (or latch) for the liftgate on the Nissan Murano commonly come out leaving the latch free to move. This movement prevents the liftgate from properly latching, and a light rattle is heard while driving over bumps. 

The screws are normally attached to a metal (backing) plate inside the frame, but when they come out the backing plate falls away leaving no way to resecure the latch. 

To install the latch, the backing plate must be retrieved through a bolt hole, and the screws must be replaced with a thread locking compound. There is no access to the plate except through the bolt holes.

To prevent this from occurring, the screws must be removed and reinstalled with a thread locking compound one at a time.
