How to replace propeller shaft coupling?

The propeller shaft coupling is irreparable and it should be replaced if defects appear. Scheduled replacement should be performed every 50,000 km. It is better to carry out this work at a service station, but if you have the skills, replacement by yourself is quite possible. The action sequence is the following:

  1. The car is set on a servicing pit or a ramp and rendered stationary.
  2. Bolts attaching the propeller shaft mount to the transverse support, and nuts fastening the propeller shaft to the rear axle end portion are unscrewed.
  3. The propeller shaft is demounted.
  4. Nuts with which the flexible coupling of the propeller shaft is mounted to the gearbox flange, are unscrewed with the help of a wrench, and after this the coupling is demounted together  with the flange.
  5. Remaining bolts are unscrewed, the coupling is disconnected from the flange.
  6. A new part is installed, connected to the flange in advance, and then, assembling of the other elements is performed.

Replacement procedures for cars of different brands will vary, so you need to check car technical documentation to get detailed instructions.
