i did change it for one i'd already modified..new bearings and a alloy retainer that keeps it all in place and stops the shaft from moving and making noise

Hi there, My car has the Russ Y pipe non res, I'm considering the same set up as you with downpipes and stock back box.

How have you got on with track noise levels? can you get on at Anglesey/Oulton ok?

Cheers

I am sorry if this is a stupid question, what is a Bell Housing? where is it located and what is it for.

I apologize in advance if the question sounds stupid

It's where the gearbox mates to the engine block. It also houses the clutch mechanism; So called because it's bell shaped. It's a common term used on all makes and models.

Agree with above. There is a prop shaft that goes to the gearbox, which is at the rear of the car. The bellhousing rattle is is where the bearing that fits in the bellhousing has excess play and as such the prop doesnt spin exactly true and makes the noise.

its basically a housing that is shaped like the front of a manual gearbox..but on the GTR it just houses a shaft..two bearings and bolts to the rear of the engine..
the shaft moves back and forth over time and sometimes the bearings get so loose that it damages the casing..once there is wear there is noise..hench the term bell housing rattle.the gearbox is at the rear of the car and a propshaft is connected to the bell housing shaft and that sends the engine power back into the gearbox..hope that helps

Wow that video noise is so horrendous! So glad mine was done 2k before I bought it. I would literally crap myself if that noise happened not knowing what is was.

Off topic but Chronos, where are you based? I'm 20mins away from ACspeedtech and I've already made enquiries with Russ about an exhaust system

Okay, don't the messenger, but ...

There is no mechanical issue with the bell housing "rattle".
The way it is designed, it rattles. It's annoying, and embarrassing, but there it is.
The only bell housing bearing check in the workshop manual is for lateral run out. Off the top of my head, 0.2mm. More than that you need a new bell housing.
And now for the uncomfortable bit. You can shut the rattle up a bit by having your bell housing replaced with one which has been modified. I can't argue, it's quieter.
Nissan don't see the bell housing as an issue, because it isn't. The dealerships are being less than honest with Nissan HQ when they replace housings which don't have more than the max runout.

I had mine replaced. £850 all in. It rattles less. That's all.
When I queried if the original had a problem, I was shown the problem. The driveshaft flange was pushed and pulled to its full extent, slamming at each travel end stop. Rattle rattle rattle. That's not the "problem". It has to have some longitudinal travel because the distance between the gearbox input and the motor is not fixed.

Definitely, some needed one. Especially the ones which damaged the bearing seat. Most of us didn't.

A solid steady idle is one of the keys to a quiet bellhousing i have had a map where the idle hunted a little and it rattled when warm - the map i have on now is solid @800rpm and not heard a peep out of it

I think mine may be developing the rattle. Happens at low speed just as I'm pulling away also when the engine starts and stops but doesn't do it in neutral at idle??? Any ideas??

They always sound rough starting and stopping. What year is your car?

They can make a horrible rattley nosie just as you start to pull away, the newer cars do that. As soon as you lift your foot off the brake it applies throttle itself sensing you want to move, and thats's when the rattle is heard. Older cars don't do that. It's normal.

If you don't rattle in neutral at idle that's quite amazing. Has your BH been changed?
