So as some of you know I just picked up my 2015 Titan back in February. I've been enjoying it but I've become a little addicted to reading all your posts. Good info here by the way. Anyway as I read all these posts I see most if not all members here have done the rear axle vent mod. Which makes me question if I should do this mod or wait until my warranty runs out? The last thing I want to do is do this mod and then if something was to go wrong with my rear axle Nissan won't want to cover it because I added this mod. Do you guys suggest I do the mod now before I rack up the miles or should I wait to be out of warranty to do it? I also have noticed a very faint whine coming from the rear end while driving in the freeway and under load. The whine is not loud by no means but it is definitely there faintly. Is this an indication or something I should be concerned or does this fall under the "normal" operation thresholds? Thanks for any input.

Nissan will use any excuse they can not to do something. I'm on number 7 made by Nissan since the late 1980's and it's always been a issue to get anything from that company easily. If your worried, stay stock even though there are much better parts and options out there than what Nissan uses as oem.

I'd say vent it and keep the original cap piece, if you run into problems, put it back on and pull the vent tubing, chances are, they will never know.

I agree with this. All you'd have to do would be cut some zip ties to pull the vent out. Takes about 10 minutes.

Also agree with the above. There is no way they would ever know, unless they watched you remove it right in front of them.

Do the mod, clean up the original vent, and pop it in your glove box. Problem solved.

Thanks guys. I think I will go ahead and do the axle vent mod.
