    Default C5 drive shafts

    I have a rumble in the front of the car (2002 C5 hdi), worse when turning left. Sounds like a failed drive shaft to me, how difficult are they to replace, is Haynes useful for this? Comments gratefully received.

    I reckon the hardest part is putting on the rubber gaiters, but this has been discussed before here. Don't forget about properly supporting a hydraulic car before you get under it.

    Unlikely to be driveshaft. Could be tyres or wheelbearing on drivers side front or rear. Haynes would be useful.

    Best to diagnose before committing to expensive spare parts. There have been several threads on this type of noise where part after part has been replaced with little or no improvement in noise.

    It could be anything from a heat shield rubbing on the hub to a delaminated Steel belted radial tyre. It could be very low brake pad too. Have a really good look at the pads and the Rotors. If that's all ok it could also be the centre bearing on the RHS driveshaft. If you don't know how to check it , take it to a front end specialist.
    Cheers..
