3 Most Common Propshaft Problems

Propshafts, also known as drive shafts are the pivotal component connecting the transmission between the engine differential and a vehicle’s wheels. Similar to many other vehicle components, propshafts are vulnerable to wear from time to time.

At Mayfair Gearbox, we have many years of experience in repairing prop shafts and we are aware that the common problems arising in propshafts do not simply manifest overnight due to the components’ durability characteristics. Signs of wear gradually occur over a long period of time and when you notice them, it is vital that you seek specialist assistance to address the issue. Here are 3 of the most common problems occurring in propshaft components.

Damaged U-Joints

One of the first signs of drive shaft problems is vibrations or shaking of the vehicle. This vibration effect commonly occurs when the vehicle is accelerating or decelerating. Although the vehicle’s vibrating can simply be an issue with the tyres, vibrations coming from the propshaft are caused by many problems including lack of lubrication on the U-joint, worn U-joints or a dented drive shaft.

Worn Propshaft

Prop shaft problems can make driving more complicated that it should be, especially when attempting actions that require precision. A commonly occurring example is trouble when manipulating the vehicle. Slower reactions when completing such processes show that the propshaft is damaged or worn out.

Worn and Damaged U-Joint

In some cases, the sounds produced by the vehicle during acceleration and deceleration can be an indicator of a prop shaft defect. Similar to vibrations, sounds are a notable sign of a damaged propshaft, which will need a specialist’s attention. So, if you notice a low squeaking noise that becomes faster when you accelerate and slower when you slow down it is most likely that your vehicle’s propshaft’s U-joint is damaged. A loud knock when changing gears is another sign of a damaged or worn U-joint.

It is critical to seek professional help once you notice any of these problems, because an inefficiently functioning vehicle will put you and your fellow road users in a lot of danger. As mentioned above, at Mayfair Gearbox, we specialise in drive shaft repairs, maintenance and remanufactured products to restore your vehicles’ functionality back to working as good as new.
