Broken half shaft on series 2


Recommended Posts

Most likely to be the short one as it doesn't twist as far as the long one. Chock the wheels and unbolt the drive member and withdraw the drive member and half shaft assembly. You can then see if it is broken.

Still not going to work - the broken side won’t turn anything, the good side will spin the diff centre and the broken stub in the opposite direction, but might not rotate the prop because of the mechanical drag of the UJs and transfer box innards.  But you might hear grinding of the broken ends on rotation of one wheel, if the shaft hasn’t moved in its splines.
