I have an earlier thread
on here regarding an odd vibration I was getting in my 2008 JGCO CRD.
I've heard back from the dealer that we bought it from and their technician has diagnosed the problem as a seized main shaft u-joint. I spoke with them again and apparently the main shaft and u-joints is an unserviceable unit and requires a complete replacement part from Jeep. The cost is in the range of $1700.00 for the replacement part. I've been told that the component is rather unique in comparison to others the technician has seen.
The option I've been given is to have the main shaft sent to be rebuilt to replace the u-joints and to make the component serviceable in the future should one d them fail again.
Sorry for the newbish inquiry but I'm very new to this vehicle and have only ever owned FWD.
Has anyone heard of this?
