Drive shaft Repairs & Replacements
Drive shaft repairs are one of the most critical services we offer here at The Service Centre. Your car is one of the most significant investments in your life. Keeping your car in good condition will save you from troubles like accidents, injuries, and sudden breakdowns.
The twisting force produced by an engine is called torque, so the job of your drive shaft is to transmit the twisting force to the wheel of a vehicle. A lot of vehicles have a front-wheel drive, so the torque will be transmitted to the two front-wheel drives called half-shafts. Some modified light vehicles have changes applied to driveshafts, regulated by the NSW Government.
Your drive shaft rotates very fast and is in charge of moving the rear wheel of your vehicle. So, when the drive shaft begins to have issues, your driving will be affected. Here are some telltale signs that you may need drive shaft repairs or replacement.
If you are driving your vehicle and notice an unusual vibration from underneath your car, it is a common sign your drive shaft is having trouble. The vibrations are always caused due to worn-out bushings of the drive shaft. These bushings are what are keeping it from vibrating in the first place.
If the drive shaft is not repaired, the vibration will increase and may also lead to the damage of other components. If the vibrations increase with speed, it may also mean that you may need tyre replacement or repair.
If you notice any clunking noise whenever you accelerate your vehicle, when you put it into reverse, and even when simply driving, then the drive shaft and driveline needs looking at. Often, this is a common symptom of a wrong slip yoke, and you may need a drive shaft replacement or repair.
If you notice squeaking noise when you are driving that is coming from under your vehicle, it is a sign that your drive shaft is faulty. It could be out of balance, or some other part could be worn out.
If we notice that your driveshaft’s U-joint rotates fast or fails to rotate, then you will need to replace your driveshaft in this condition because you can’t drive in this critical condition.
