Might be a big issue, might be a little issue so I need ya help if ya know what it might be.....(for those who dont know...Grenade is our 01 GUIII)

I noticed it today in 5th gear - and it happens in every gear - but there is a vibrating / rattle type noise coming from somewhere but it stops once it goes into neutral or I push the clutch in. There is no difference in the feel of the clutch or the gears ...

Got any idea where the noise is coming from??? Im thinking its a gear thing, but it happens in every gear so its probably not just one gear.....

This may be a long shot but it could be the thrust bearing on its way out.

not the thrust bearing as the noise would START not stop when you push it in. Its likely the spindle bearing or input shaft bearings

These, if it's the 3.00 diesel, have a dual element clutch and they have had problems with them rattling or "knocking", I have heard that the spigot bearing gets a rattle as well.

Suggest you have a look on

There are a lot of fellas there with them and you'll probably get an answer.

Hi.Could be something to do with the tailshaft or uni joints. My 04 Prado has the transfer lever vibrate a bit but that is coming from inside the box and is a common thing. If yours goes away when no load on the drivetrain then I would check the first suggestion. Bob.

Hi
That was my initial thought to, then same sound under load/ off load.
Easy to check the uni's
You are a tiger for punishment kiwi
Yea Yea, the same thing can happen to Landrovers Toyotas Fords have had it all happen, maintanence ie a bit of gease helps.
Don't know much about Nissan, hubs engaged or not? is it full time 4 wd ?. Might be front shaft uni's
Just my thoughts

Dual-mass flywheel on the way out would be my bet.

Laura, check the exhaust where it goes thru behind the passenger wheel well, it may be loose.

Sounds like a new dual mass flywheel is on the cards. Expensive job too.

Hi all

Yeh its not the place you want to be looking ( expensive ) but more than likely the cause

If it is, change to a solid flywheel kit.

Good luck Laura
