This is not recommended and could result in fluid loss from the transfer case.

Can a 2005 awd territory be driven on rear tail shaft only


With an AWD vehicle there is a diff in the transfer case that allows different speeds between front and read axles . If you have 4wd button (lever ) that allows the diffs to be locked for slippery /off road conditions then it can be driven with out the front drive shaft if you have it in 4wd. If you do not have that option then without the front drive shaft it will go nowhere.

ther will probably be a vacuum operated actuator on the shaft to engage the transfer case. Check to see if it has vacuum and is actually working because without it there will be no front wheel drive

Cv boot failure


The best thing to do is completely remove the front drive shaft (assuming you are talking about the front CV boots).
1) Jack up the front end of the vehicle.2) Remove front wheel(s), track rod ends and slacken [don't remove completely just yet] the centre hub nut and remove split pin.3) With the gear in neutral, and using an appropriately sized round punch and hammer, punch out the location pin from the drive shaft where the drive shaft meets the gearbox output shafts.4) With the assistance of a flat screwdriver, lever and pull the drive shafts off the gearbox output shafts and let them drop down. 5) Using a rubber mallet, hammer the drive shaft through the front hub. You kept the nut on the end of the shaft initially so as to prevent damage to the drive shaft threads during hammering. This nut will have to be backed off and eventually removed as the shaft slides through and out of the hub unit.
With the entire shaft removed from the vehicle:
1) Cut off or slacken and remove any rubber boot retaining clips.2) slide the rubber boot(s) towards the centre of the shaft.3) Remove the inner joint first by using a small, flat screwdriver to flick out the retaining wire from the inner lip of the joint. (Keep this wire)4) Slide off inner joint cup and clean.
5) Locate the spring clip from the inner end of the shaft and carefully remove without over-stretching. if you have no replacement.
6) Slide off inner C.V. joint, and clean.
7) Remove damaged boot(s), clean all components, re-grease with LM grease and replace.
8) Reinstallation is the opposite of removal steps.


Note: Take care when re-installing drive shaft to gearbox output shaft. This will usually only align to a single position. Before tapping retaining pin back into place, visually inspect alignment of the shaft's holes. You can use your round punch to help align the holes before re-installation of the retaining pin.


Tip: With the removal of the front drive shafts, it may be a good opportunity to also replace front gearbox output oil seals and front wheel bearing-drive shaft dust seals. These are fairly inexpensive and may prolong the life of components as well as reduce the need for repetitive removal of parts.

Can i drive my 1999 silverado 1500 without front drive shaft


Yes you can. It's not recommended, but should not cause any problems, as the front drive shaft is not used during 2wd operation.

I would like to know if the wheel bearing is in the shaft or the hub?


The Constant Velocity (CV) joints are located on the inner and outer edges of the axle shaft. The axle shaft runs through the hub and bearing in the spindle.

Can i drive my jeep with no front drive shaft 2003 4.7l v8 quadra drive


I drove around for a good 2 months without my front shaft. Nothing bad happened. Don't be surprised if you get stuck on a wet leaf though!

You WILL NOT have park without the front shaft. You're rig will slowly roll if you are on the slightest incline, so carry around a brick or something to put behind/in front of your tire.

Procedures for removing drive shaft bmw x5


no the spindle stays on the vehicle,this process is not that difficult.start by removing the wheels and 38mm nut at the end of each shaft,then reomve the bolt holding on the front lower control arm from the front sub frame,pressout the shaft through the wheel bearing,now that the end of the shaft is out use a pry bar to pop out the shaft in the oil pan,pull them out and replace, Also you must be aware that removeing the 38mm nut is difficult without a impact gun and it is also a 12 point nut as well you must force out the ends of the drive shaft with a special puller of a air chistle with a point as you are not able to push it through by hand good luck

How to get the front drive shaft past the sway


it comes out without lowering the sway bar
you unbolt both ends of the shaft and pull the front part out past the front diff towards the front of the engine and the rear part of the shaft will just fall out if you cant figure it out
just remove the 4 15mm bolts that hold the sway bar to the frame and it will lower enough that will get it out no problem at all
