Hi all,
Ive had a look at my propshaft today, and it seems my Rubber doughnut coupling is split and the centre bearing feels shot. I would love to tackle this job myself, but it looks like i have to remove the exhaust:jaw-dropping. I hate exhausts! Does anybody know or works in the trade to give me a rough guide into how much this would cost at your typical garage, Id probably source the parts myself, but im concerned about labour costs,

thanks,
Lee.

That link is very useful!!:thumbsup Cheers.

It is ashame you live a little too far away, i could do with the hand! cheers for the mention though.

My dad replaced a few UJ's on props in the 70's on old fords, he gave me some pointers, i may give it a go, i bet id have to break the nuts off the exhaust though, they are a pain in the ..... :irked

With regards to your nuts:rofl...

The night before you're due to crack your nuts give them a GOOD LUBE with WD40 or other kind of penetrating oil:hihi

We have a place near here called "Propshaft Services". As the name implies that is all they do and they are very cheap and quick compaired to a normal dealer. Might be worth a look to see if there is one near you.
