Girlfriend had a New Yorker with an intermediate shaft, but like most of them it drove the front passenger side wheel. When it went out instead of trying to find another one, which I found you can't, I just bought the right side front drive shaft for the version of the car which did not have the intermediate shaft. The big Chrysler one step down from the New Yorker. So she had a standard left side drive shaft and much longer drive shaft for the passenger side. As I recall there was a small bracket which held the intermediate shaft bearing which had to be removed and discarded. It worked just fine until the rear axle beam rotted through, you can't find those either, and she had to junk it.

    When turning the steering wheel it makes a clunking sound 2004 Pontiac any help??


    Probably a bad intermediate shaft.

    There is a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) published by GM because of this condition.

    TSB Reference Number 06-02-35-010
    Date Of Issue: May 09 2006
    This bulletin involves replacing the intermediate shaft with an updated part.

    Updated part number (per the TSB) is GM Part Number 26068295
    This is an old TSB - you will probably want to check with your local GM dealer to make sure this part number has not been superceeded.
