Driveshaft???

Okay so my driveshaft came out in the middle of the highway the other day because the guibo bolts weren't installed correctly. I have replacement bolts but I have no idea how to put the drive shaft back in. Click image for larger version

As you can see a couple bolts are still in there ( have to take them out, ) but my driveshaft isn't close enough to put the bolts back in

You should be able to pull the back of the driveshaft back to meet up with the joint.


I worked at a shop that specialized in BMWs and you should have seen the look on people's faces when i would tell them they needed a new "guibo" joint.....like i said muffler bearings or turn signal fluid lol
