Well I got hold of the builder and he got a plumber out here, both plumbers said they had never seen one of the pex brass clamp rings break. Well back to business...Okay how in the name of God does this driveshaft come apart? I took it to a machine shop and he worked on it for about 5 minutes and he gave it back to me and told me he had no idea how to get it apart?

there should be a 19mm bolt holding the york in place. now this is where you want to put marks on both sides so you put the halves back together the same way.


see the bolt head behind the yoke



EDIT sorry i missed the part where you removed the bolt. the shaft comes apart there for sure tri some BP blaster you may have to press it off and that means you have to take the universal joint apart

Theoretically, the throwout bearing should have been replaced the last time it had a clutch change, so it failing could be a sign that it is on its way out. or prehaps the last person to service it didnt change the bearing.
Could also means that the person like to ride the clutch while he is waiting at a light.

Funny story. My dad picked up a jetta TDI 6-spd last week. we we're driving around and he's sitting at a red light, clutch on ground, car in gear. Car has 94 miles on it.. had to give him a talking to after that

I don't like the sound of that..it don't even look like they come apart. Appears they are put in there and then the metal is stamped with little indents. My rubber o-rings or seals on the u-joint some of them are broke/deteriorated and fell off. How much am I looking at to get this dang thing fixed...can't seem to catch a break.

Is it just my Bentley book or am I overlooking it I can't find anything talking about the flywheel and bolt torque specs. Well my drive shaft is at the shop..hopefully he can get the blasted thing apart. Bentley book is wrong also well at least on my car...it says you need a 30mm thin walled deep socket to remove the but to get to the transmission output seal, it's a 36mm.

really? Maybe i worded it poorly...

He'll be waiting at a red light stopped, in first gear with the clutch depressed the entire time. Very unhealthy habit for the car. Its so he can just let the clutch out when it goes green. we're veering OT now though...

Is it horribly bad that I forgot to lubricate the transmission output seal? I can't remember if it was this hard to turn before. Perhaps it just needs broke in...

it will require quite a bit of effort to turn

but as far as having to lubricate it or not, thats beyond my knowledge, i havent done rebuilds of engines trans diffs etc yet

Not sure I can get any oil on there now with the flange on. Just hoping this isn't going to ruin the seal or cause a leak..perpaps some Liquid Wrench Dry Lubricant will work. About to bolt transmission back up, whats it mean about preloading the driveshaft?

preloading the driveshaft is pushing the center bearing as far forward as possible and then tighten it down if you look there are slots on it

as far as the oil goes pour some down the splines it will makes way to the seal dis you replace rear seal also

Yeah, I replaced all the seals. Well if it starts leaking due to bad new seals I'll know where I went wrong and I'll be pulling the transmission back out..because the transmission is bolted back up partialy..lots of pics coming soon. Just got driveshaft back from the shop.

Well I just hit yet another problem..I can't remove the driveshaft centering sleeve that is pressed into front of driveshaft. Its damaged and won't even budge using grease and socket trying to force it out. Ideas?

if we are thinking about the same thing, it doesnt come out. you need to put that end in first before doing up the centre hanger bearing

Read another post on the board here and they forced it out by packing grease in it. As soon as the wife gets back with my truck I'll take a picture of the new one. Slide hammer might be able to grab it..
