Hi guys,
I've got a 2002 RX4 and during the last service the mechanics picked up the drive shaft balance weight (a rubber doughnut type thing that's attached to the shaft at the rear diff) was worn. They wanted £600+ for a new drive shaft. After piocking myself off the floor I was wondering does anyone know if I can get this weight seperately and where from?
Thanks for your help

As Chris quite rightly says,the propshaft problem has been mentioned on the forum before,and apparently Renault only supply a complete unit.

It might be worth contacting a specialist.I used to deal with a company called Reco-prop....I'll see if I can find any contact details for them.

Back in a mo.:)

Can't find any contact details or number,but the company is called Recoprop and they're in Luton.They might be able to repair your old unit.

If not,then theres Welcome to Burgess of Bradford Ltd - Propshaft Clinic (click on the link:))or Propshaft Services who are at Heathrow.

They might not be able to help,but it's a worth a try before handing over £600 to Renault!:eek:
