I have no car!!! I was on my way to uni going through the liverpool tunnel when my car had a little judder forward then nothing! no power in any gears!!! I had to get towed out the tunnel on a low loader and they closed the tunnel 32!!!! and they wouldnt tow me to my side so then I had to phone the aa! the aa fella took over an hour to come! then said he couldnt tow it and called for a low loader to come then I had to wait 2 hours for that to come!!!!! and now my car is in the garage!! they said theyll have a look at it 2mora! there is no power in any gears but the speedo go's up when in gears so its spinnin so im guessin drive shaft or diff!! anyone have any ideas? ill know for sure 2mora!if its diff I think its time for quaiffe forged atb ones!!!

yeah it was 32 quid! 46 if you dont pay in 14 days! from things ive read on tinernet it sounds like driveshaft has jumped out of diff so they can probably just pop it back in! at least for now! till i get my forged quaife one!

Didn't know your car was RWD <img border="0" alt="cool" title="" src="graemlins/cwemotions049.gif" /> Very nice. If the AA wanted a low loader then it's more likely to be a smashed up diff, coz they could've taken the driveshaft right off and towed it that way otherwise. <img border="0" alt="sorry" title="" src="graemlins/cwemotions053.gif" />

Hope it's all better soon though mate wink

Got News for you then, I doubt you've even got a drive shaft! They should've been able to tow it if it was anything to do with the front transmission <img border="0" alt="confused" title="" src="graemlins/cwemotions051.gif" />

My astras gearbox is linked to the front half-shafts. No drive shaft anywhere. <img border="0" alt="[does this help]" title="" src="graemlins/cwemotions041.gif" />

Just looked at the links. Those are half shafts mate, but I can see how they'd be confused as being drive shafts. A drive shaft goes down the length of a rwd car to the diff from the gearbox (or transfer box in a 4wd), half shafts are what go across the width from the diff to the wheels in any car. <img border="0" alt="[does this help]" title="" src="graemlins/cwemotions041.gif" />

A Half shaft is a Driveshaft and a Driveshaft is a half shaft.......

Modern term is Driveshaft.

Old School term is a half Shaft

The Prop-shaft is the shaft driving the rear axle on a rear wheel drive vehicle. goes from the gearbox to the axle.

Hope this clears this up ????

Gutted for ya matey anyways, hope its notin serious, Your car is common for the Driveshaft shearing off close to the outer constant velosity joint.
