Re: WARNING - Not all CV drive shafts are compatable with Xtrail


Keep an eye on the boots Menno to make sure they aren't rubbing too much, especially once it gets close to the 12 mths warranty expiry date.

Re: WARNING - Not all CV drive shafts are compatable with Xtrail


Good call Kev.

From experience when I priced up repairing the boot vs a reco shaft the shaft was a clear cheaper option.

After my last bush adventure i managed to tear both boots at the front. To save money i picked up 2 second hand shafts at $100ea
They are quite easy to replace as DIY goes. Much easier than boots alone.
Just make sure the car has as little damage as possible and mainly to the rear.
I got lucky with mine as it only had hail damage and fine otherwise.

Also make sure you have plenty of CVT fluid (for auto)on hand to the right spec otherwise you go no where.

As I mentioned in the first post, the ABS sensor ring teeth are completely different.
[snipped]



I should have mentioned earlier, while I was managing a Subaru dealership workshop, we had this problem a few times. We eventually came up with a process that we would remove the ABS ring from the owners original drive shaft before sending it out for exchange (for a reconditioned unit), and then swap the ABS ring on the received reco unit to the owners original ABS ring, and send the unused ring back to the reco shop.

Of course you can only do this on a shaft where you can press the rings on/off. But it guarantees no 4WD/ABS issues as the original ABS ring stays with the vehicle.

Re: WARNING - Not all CV drive shafts are compatable with Xtrail


Sometimes this works Wiz, but in my case the actual CV was not upto the job and still gave shuddering around the 40-60kph mark. Replacing them with reconditioned CV's stopped this, hence the warning about the CV's not all being suitable for the Xtrail.
