Broken Long Shaft Mounting

on Aug 7, 2011
After getting my car for a few weeks, I needed to sent my car to the workshop again... When driving I can hear some grinding noise and during initial acceleration, I can feel the car vibrating a bit... I'm suspecting the long shaft to be the main culprit...

After checking my mechanic confirm that something is indeed wrong with my long shaft... But the problem does not lies on the long shaft rather than the mounting... Guess I need to train myself not to step on the accelerator pedal everytime I'm behind the wheel of my 'FrankenBenz'!!!


Besides the long shaft mounting, I'm changing my power steering box as well as the old box is leaking severely... I need to top up everyday and a 1 litre power steering fluid won't last me a week!!! That's how bad it was leaking... After replacing the power steering box, there is a noticeable difference between steering feel... The steering is so much heavier and a lot less free play... This is how it should have been...


What is this 'Proton Savvy' doing in my mechanic shop???
