    Drive shaft problems? with pictures???

    Get this really annoying noise as if something is rubbing when driving it even happens when I have drove to the speed limit and put it in to neutral think it could be something to do with the drive shaft I got home and got the car on the ramps found some metal fillings and the bolt was loose. Here is the pictures I took











    Anybody got any idea it would be most appreciated!!!

    Is it not just a 12 point bolt?. looks around 13mm,
    Most old imperial stuff is 12point so raid your father/ grandfathers toolbox for a 1/2" lol

    It is a 12 point socket, 10mm size. Recently did mine. I would suggest replacing the bolt too. Part number is: N 905 897 02

    It is the propshaft connecting to the transfer box, think he knows that but he just said drive shafts by accident.

    sorry guys got a wee bit mixed up cheers for the part number Andy I think I might have sheered one on the bolts off as there was a lot of metal fillings below!

    Got a wee update on my car, its sat on my drive for two weeks got working on it just now after buying the right tool to tighten the loose bolt up. I got that done and the horrible noise I was getting before seems to have gone so I think i have fixed it the only annoying thing is that I have also bought 12 torque bolt to replace the old ones I'll keep an eye on it and I might take it to the garage to get it looked over for piece of mind!

    Yeah just taken it out again and the bolt has came loose again its gonna have to go to the garage I think the more power you give the car makes the bolt work itself loose I've got new bolts but I can't get enough access to take the old ones out!!!
