General description

    All fasteners of the driveshaft are important parts in the sense that they can influence work of the vital parts and systems and/or repair cost. In need of replacement, they should be replaced with details with the same number or equivalent details. Do not replace with their details the worst quality or a similar design. For correctly fastening of parts and details it is necessary to observe the specified values of the moment of an inhaling.
  • Never try to heat, sharply to cool or straighten any parts of the driveshaft. They should be replaced new, otherwise damage of a detail is possible.

The majority of universal hinges do not demand maintenance. They are greased for all the time of the operation and cannot be greased on the car.

If the universal hinge is worn-out or begins to rustle, it should be replaced.

The driveshaft is balanced by the module. Handle with it with care not to break balance.
