Question about Schwinn 26" Meridian Adult Tricycle, Dark Cherry

Rear axle broke in half. Why? Is it a common problem?

The dealer replaced the rear axle. I am worried that it may happen again. I think the rear axle concept on the trike is a design fault.

If you like the bike and want to keep it why not visit a local metal work shop and talk to them they may weld an extra support on the rear to stop this happening.

Was told drive shaft was worn out needs rebuilt or new any 1 here of this

Rebuilding them consists of new U joints and maybe balanced. If it was so loose the the u joints wallowed out the keepers, Then yes, they would also need replaced. Cut off and welded on. That isn't a common problem, but I have had to replace a few. Not just on jeeps.

Rear axle broke in half and was replaced under warrantee.

I am not familiar with this model of bike. I guess there are two possible reasons:
1. The axle was internally weak. It may be either due to its small diameter in the centre area or faults in the metal body.
2. The load was too heavy. Depend on the weight of the rider or any additional people or goods on the bike, the total load may exceed the load limit and the axle broke.

1999 silverado rear end shakes at all speeds. put brand new tires n balanced

You should have an alignment on all 4 wheels. Check that the rear axle has not shifted forward or backward on one side. If you have Rear Disc Brakes, have the Hub & Rotor checked for alignment. Does this shaking happen all of the time or just when turning? Does it only happen when you apply the brakes? A Rotor and Hub that is out of alignment will cause shaking. Also check that the Caliper Slide Bolts are lubricated, otherwise the caliper will not operate correctly and the inside of the rotor will wear out faster. This can cause shaking also.

An axel might need to be fixed. what would the cost be?

most likely you have two front half axles or drive shafts, and one rear axle beam. So first figure out which one you are talking about, then go look up that part on a parts store website or call a dealer. Rear axle beam will be a dealer or junk yard item, front drive shafts are common and sold at every parts store. When you know what part you need call some reapir shops and ask them for an estimate for labor to remove and replace that item. They have time books at their disposal. This is not a parts store, nor a repair shop.

Yes, I just had the samething happen today. DONT drive it anymore. The gears in your rear is about to break. My right gear for the axle broke into pieces. Now i have to make a decision of replacing all the parts broke or replace the whole rear.

Rear axle broke and wheel came off. fixed it and same thing happened. rear floating axles have pin that broke!! 97 CREW CAB F250 Can this axle be replaced with another type.

You can get an after market part but my guess is the stablizer bar grommets are worn out and need to be replaced, this is what caused the second failure. If it has a strut be sure the strut bearing is not broke.

99 expedition trans feels like it engages but will not move.fluid level is ok

Check out these things: rear wheels locked up because of emergency brakes coming apart inside rear drum/rotor.

Rear axle broke

4x4 controls switched half on-half off.

Torque converter broke

All of these problems will not make much in the way of noise. You will need both rear wheels off ground and trans in neutral to turn the rear wheels. If they turn its likely the torque converter.

Rear Axle Leak

if it is the seal, you will have to remove the caliper and rotor, remove the differential cover and remove the bolt and pin inside the diff carrier housing. push in the axle and remove the axle clip and pull out the axle use a seal puller or prybar to remove seal reverse the steps to assemble
