    Unscrew two bolts, take off bracket, pull off mounts (they are open on one side I think), grease inside with silicone (important) grease, pop back on, fill outer grease channel on mount or bracket and then put back on and screw in.

    Note I am not a mechanic and not done mounts yet. I do hobby stuff like spark plugs and oils changes and have only read about mount replacements on forums and various google/ YouTube things. Someone correct me if I am wrong.

    I had the same issue with my Micra at about 18,000 km. Brought it to the attention of my service advisor during a routine service appointment, but of course during their test drive they didn't hear anything. However, I was told there is a Technical Service Bulletin for this issue. After some back and forth and more test driving with the service technician, finally got the sway bar bushings replaced today with 3 months left in my warranty

    Subject: SB Versa Sedan/Note, and Micra; Squeak in Front Suspension Over Bumps
    Summary of NTB17042:
    IF YOU CONFIRM
    Squeak noise coming from the stabilizer bushings while driving over bumps at slow speeds,
    ACTION
    Replace both stabilizer bushings.

    Bummer. I think I'm out of warranty now. Just passed 60k last week and when I took it in last month I couldnt replicate the noise when going for a ride with the service guy. It only seems to happen when it's very cold out.

    Hoping now that greasing them helps for next winter.
