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.

Waheed the mechanic was very knowledgable and did an excellent “pre-purchase inspection”on the car. Found some issues with the car, and as a result we didn’t buy the car. Very thankful

instaMek provides excellent service and we will continue to hire them. They are on time, friendly, and professional. Grant, the technician who worked on our car, was professional, took the time to explain what needed to be attended to, and was very helpful.

Our pre-purchase inspection was done by Waheed who did an excellent and thorough job. He was very professional and took the time to discuss a few questions I had on the phone after I had read the report.
