I recently changed my leftside driveshaft 3 times..... but the same error occurs... Kloing noise from the driveshaft after driving 500 km and shaking in the stearing wheel around from 100 til 115 km/h - It is all off marked driveshafts but the result is the same . Can anyone please help me with this problem ? Can it really be necessary to fit and Original FORD part on this car ?

Sounds like it could be an inner CV joint issue, why not just use a quality component and see if that sorts it

Also what about the right hand side driveshaft? The stress on the driveshaft is mainly on the opposite side to the way you are turning. Many an unthinking mechanic have been caught by that little conundrum in the past. It took me 2 months to once convince a garage that they were fixing the wrong side.

I drive a Seat Alhambra 1.9Tdi which has 115bhp and an automatic gearbox.

I am happy to help you with all your questions. I am not a qualified mechanic but seem to be better at fixing my car than even the most experienced garages.

I have lots of friends here and very much enjoy talking with you all.

Always remember, a motor car is a serious tool and should be treated with respect. Put your safety first, always.
