Front Drive Shaft Replacement Service

How much does a Front Drive Shaft Replacement cost?

It depends on the type of car you drive and the auto repair shop you go to. Our mechanics are mobile, which means they don't have the overhead that repair shops have. They provide you convenience by coming to your home or office.

What is the driveshaft?

The driveshaft sends the power (torque) produced by the engine to the front (front-wheel-drive), rear (rear-wheel-drive), or front as well as rear (Four wheel-drive) of the car as needed. A four-wheel-drive vehicle might have two driveshafts.

Keep in mind when replacing your front drive shaft

  • A four-wheel-drive vehicle might have two driveshafts and you might just need to change one of them.
  • A vehicle with customized elevation run a higher risk of having a damaged driveshaft.
  • When your driveshaft is changed, all other parts must be inspected for quality and the U-joints must be effectively lubricated.
  • In some vehicles, it is much more simple and budget friendly to change the whole driveshaft than to change a single part.
  • The mechanic will ensure that all U-joints are lubricated. This will certainly expand the life of your driveshaft.

Signs that you should replace your Front Drive Shaft

  • A clunking noise occurs when you accelerate or when you shift between reverse and drive.
  • Your car vibrates when driving.
  • You hear a squeaking noise when driving.

How it's done

  • The mechanic will remove and change your Front Drive Shaft.
  • They will then conduct a standard safety and security inspection.
  • Finally the mechanic will test drive your vehicle.

How important is this service?

A driveshaft transfers power from a car's transmission to its wheels. As the driveshaft gets damaged, it doesn't effectively transfer power to the wheels, which places unnecessary pressure on other parts of the vehicle can in turn cause even more damage. When the driveshaft ceases working completely, the vehicle will not have the ability to send out power to the wheels and you won't be able to drive.

Glen was a delight to learn from and have come inspect my vehicles brakes. He gave honest, unbiased feedback, and was a straight shooter; a breathe of fresh air for the industry. Would highly recommend Glen for coming to your home to work on your vehicle!

Alex was excellent. Arrived in a timely manner, was able to quickly diagnose the issue and took the time to explain the possible causes and make recommendations as to how to prevent similar issues. Very happy with the service. I will be recommending instamek to relatives and friends. Thank you!

I’m someone that works five days a week, 8am-6pm so finding out that Instamek offered a service where the inspection can be arranged for the mechanic to come to you, took a huge amount of stress off my shoulders. It’s amazing how it’s so easy, definitely a god-send for people that have super busy schedules!Waheed was the gentleman that helped me conduct a pre-purchase inspection and he was... absolutely perfect. He was vocal about everything he was doing, kept me in the loop offered to explain his findings after the inspection, and even extended his services to calls/texts anytime I had questions! He was honest, kind and patient, and gave me his professional opinion on the situation which ultimately helped me decide on my next step with the seller. For someone like me who’s very much vehicle-illiterate, it was the most helpful piece of advice. I highly recommend Instamek, and to have Waheed as your guy! You won’t be disappointed.read more

My truck wouldn't start, and I knew it wasn't the battery. Booked an appointment online and the mechanic showed up quickly. He diagnosed the problem quickly and correctly, gave a fair quote right on the spot and explained everything. My starter was replaced and I'm back in business. I can't recommend highly enough. Also, definitely go for Instamek PRIME. It got me a good discount on my repair... and now I get maintenance service calls, and roadside assistance.read more

Mek Waheed and his mechanic partner were excellent. Very friendly, and much more thorough than my last inspection, which was at a shop with a lift! They spent time with me afterwards explaining things in detail. Would definitely recommend this service.

The service was very easy to set up, they showed up right on time and provided excellent service. My oil change was super easy to have done while I sat on my couch. They even sanitized my keys for me before giving them back!

Service is excellent with good pricing. I actually went on the chat line on the website and directly chatted with the CEO! You might not believe it but I can confirm it's true. The best
