Question about 2002 Ford Escape

Open Question

Driveshaft problems I have already removed the rear portion of the driveshaft on my 2002 ford escape 4x4. I need to remove the front portion of the driveshft to replace the U-joint. There are six torx bolts that appear to hold the shaft to the gearbox. I'm not sure if this is needed to remove the shaft. Also I need to remove the rear yoke to the rear-end. please help.

SOURCE: Driveshaft yoke balancer

I had the same problem and removed the balancer from the drive shaft this morning. I put the drive shaft back on, and drove the truck around all day, highway, city, stop and go, there were no problems, and the noise was gone, and I had no vibrations at all. So you should be fine if you remove the balancer.

SOURCE: vw polo driveshaft torx splines problems

Hi Ammar

If your torx bolt splines are shot.

Hammer on the surface face, with a long round drift to loosen the bolt threads slightly, and close up the torx hole, and try the torx splined socket again.

If no good try mole grips on the head of the bolt to loosen it.

If not enough room for them, try a chisel on the outer edge of the bolt, this normally does it.

Failing this try hammering on a slightly smaller external socket, than the head of the bolt, then try removing.

Good Luck !

Let me know how you get on.

A FixYa rating would be nice !

John

Remove it. Then drive the truck to see if it vibrates. If it don't forget it. If it does, replace the driveshaft. But get it off there before it breaks something.

  1. NOTE: Removal of the LH front wheel driveshaft and joint (3B437) requires removal of the transmission support crossmember (6A023) to allow access with a pry bar.

What do i need to do to convert my c-6 4x4 tranny into a 4x2 tranny


get a 4x2 tranny, and replace the 4x4 tranny and 4x4 transfer case with it, you will also need to remove your front drive shaft, that operates your front FWD, and replace the drive shaft for the rear axel.....

Find a good Salvage yard and see about trading parts to convert to 4x2
