Driveshaft Repairs & Replacements
Driveshaft 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 driveshaft 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.
Your driveshaft rotates very fast, and is in charge of moving the rear wheel of your vehicle. So, when the driveshaft begins to have issues, your driving will be affected. Here are some tell tale signs that your driveshaft needs repairs or replacement.
If you are driving your vehicle and notice an unusual vibration from underneath your car, it is a common sign your driveshaft is having trouble. The vibrations are always caused due to worn-out bushings of the driveshaft. These bushings are what are keeping it from vibrating in the first place.
If the driveshaft 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 your tyres need to be balanced.
If you notice any clunking noise whenever you accelerate your vehicle, when you put it into reverse, and even when simply driving, then the driveshaft and driveline needs looking at. Often, this is a common symptom of a wrong slip yoke, and you may need a driveshaft 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 driveshaft 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.
