Inner Tripod Drive shafts knock
« on: January 23, 2017, 01:07:42 PM »
I have replaced my passenger side inner tripod drive in Oct 2015 with a genuine Ford F1308629 kit it is now starting to give trouble slight knocking pulling away in first and when the car is jacked up and let down again I get the steering wobble at low speed I usually end up having to drive it in a figure 8 pattern to settle it down again.

I am having a hard time searching for equivalent parts for this drive
My ford dealer was only giving 1 year warranty on parts over the counter

I was looking on the autodoc site and there was a Pascal G7W019PC listed as being suited to my car but when I messaged them they said it was not suitable their oem ref no was OEN 7M0407272E - VW for the pascal drive.

If it was just the one inner CV joint you replaced is there a chance that it's not the one you replaced but the other side that's now causing trouble?

I don't have personal experience but several members on this forum rate the Motomax aftermarket joints & shafts...........

Yes its the passenger side that is causing the knock pulling away in first gear and I can feel the play in it.  I am just presuming that it is the source of the vibration when the car is jacked up and let down again.

I have used that motomax site for my previous 2002 galaxy for the drivers side inner stub axle where they supplied a much improved part alright.

I have just had both front shocks out to replace the bearing mounts but noticed the top plates had been worn oval and had cut into the shocks so I was planning on getting a pair of KYB 334947 front shocks to replace them with.  Now I have just noticed the passenger side rack boot has just started to leak some oil but the reservoir has not gone down yet, so that is a good sign.  There is a 160,000 miles on the clock and I want to put some steering fluid conditioner in to try and keep the seals supple.

Can you recommend a conditioner for the steering that will be compatible?

It would also be nice if someone could recommend an inner tie rod tool tht works on this car as I am considering replacing both inner and outer rack ends art the same time.

Also give these a try,I have had a pair of shafts for my other car off them and found the price and service to be excellent. The parts themselves are very well made and carry a 2 year guarantee.
I know they do the intermediate shaft kit so no doubt will do

I came across that site on ebay but there appeared to be a lot of unhappy customers looking at previous reviews.

I can only go on my experience I have had 2 shafts for x type and a few years back 1 for a 205 gti and both times found them to be very good.
