Ford Transit Propshaft Repairs

Ford Transit Propshaft ProblemsA Propeller Shaft which is commonly known as the Propshaft, runs along the underside of both Rear Wheel Drive and Four Wheel Drive cars, to deliver power from the engine / transmission system through to the Differential and onto the wheels. Ford Transits are generally rear wheel drives, therefore are equipped with both a propshaft as well as rear drive shafts.

Common Propshaft Problems
General wear and tear, light bumps or even neglect can trigger concerns with the propshaft which can cause it to become unbalanced. Some of the more common issues that have been found to occur with Ford Transit Propshafts include:

  • Vibrations
  • Knocking / Grinding noises
  • Failed Universal Joint (UJ)
  • Failed Spicer Joint
  • Failed Bearing
  • Unbalanced Propshaft
  • Propshaft Vibrations
  • Propshaft Knocking
  • Propshaft Grinding

Any of the above symptoms can go on to damage the propshaft and a complete replacement could cost between £400.00 – £1200.00 + VAT (depending on the model of the vehicle) from a Ford dealership, and adding labour / fitting on top of that can further increase the costs. Although the genuine part will come directly from Ford and with 12-month warranty, the price of a replacement is usually still unappealing. Aftermarket options are also available as well as second hand units, but the warranty is generally limited and will not be as good quality as the genuine product.

Ignoring a propshaft failure may cause complete loss of drive but if it is caught early on, it does not have to be an expensive fix. As an alternative to the expensive replacement of a propshaft, you can trust us here at Sinspeed, to remanufacture the unit using genuine OEM components, with new joints and bearings and fully rebalance the unit to ensure it meets and exceeds OE specifications. Not only this, but it will also come with 12 month warranty to ensure 100% Customer Satisfaction!
