Driveshaft Replacement


What is a drive shaft and how it works?

In two wheel drive and all wheel drive cars, it is the drive shaft that transfers power from the engine to the  wheels to distribute them between the two wheels. In some cars, the drive shaft connects to a transaxle (a rear-mounted gearbox and differential), but in most cars it transfers power from the gearbox attached to the engine into the front to a differential on the back.


What are the symptoms of a faulty drive shaft?

Following are the symptoms of the faulty or broken drive shaft:

  • The car vibrates while driving.
  • Noise comes under or behind the car.
  • The car doesn't move at all.


When should i replacement drive shaft?

Although the drive shaft itself does not usually wear out over time, it can be damaged. Usually due to an accident or because the axle was damaged, it will drive over a bump or through a pothole. In many cases like this, the car becomes practically impossible to drive with loud knocking noises.

Addressing driveline issues in a timely and professional manner is key to avoiding additional and more costly damage to the car. If you experience drive shaft, cv joint, drive shaft seal, or cv gaiter problems,  it is advisable to inspect it and, if necessary, replace the drive shaft.
