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.

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

Booked a PPI the same day and they sent an excellent mechanic who drove to the location to inspect the vehicle a few hours later. The mechanic, Hany, what a great guy. I'd definitely recommend this service to anyone.

We used instaMek twice for a pre purchase vehicle inspection within a few days over the Easter period, (all other mechanic shops were fully booked). Both technicians were very helpful and informative, which helped us make a decision on which vehicle to purchase. I highly recommend this company for their communication, attention to detail and customer focused approach. Spend the money on an inspection, so you are aware of what work might be required or if you should avoid buying the vehicle all together.read more

Second time with InstaMek. After my alternator belt snapped, I contacted InstaMek, and with in an hour Alex was at my place with all the necessary parts. In the next hour my car was fixed and ready to go. I was impressed with communication, quick and convenient service. Good people, great service, very highly recommended.Alex was on time and inspected the car. Gave me great advice on possible fixes. The communication with the company is outstanding. It's both emails and text, and in this digital world it is very welcoming. I knew exactly when the mechanic would arrive and if there were any issues when arriving late. Absolutely outstanding and convenient service. I'm will definitely call on them again.read more
