Drive Train Axles Bearings problem
2002 Volkswagen Jetta 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 90000 miles
2.8L 6 cyl, engine code BDH, 6 speed manual transmission. Replaced driver side half shaft after finding torn CV boot. Now have vibration caused by the inner joint pushing up against the end cap, forcing the engine/trans to shift sideways. Have tried three shafts with same results. I have noticed that the torque strut (dogbone) shifts sideways with the trans, does not appear to be rigid at all. Is it supposed to be? Is a defective dogbone causing the engine to sit too far to the left (driver side), causing the zero clearance for the inner joint? This is very frustrating. Is there any other possible problem that would create this condition? Motor mounts perhaps? Help!
have the same problem?
