    Default Peugeot 504 rear drive shaft boots are stuffed - what to do?

    Hi all

    My first post on here. I own a Sage Grey 1972 504. My father first purchased this car in 1980 and has been in the family ever since. The car has been sitting for a number of years under wraps, but I have taken over ownership of it recently and got it back on the road. It is mint condition, but from sitting around all the rubber boots on the rear drive shafts have perished (all 4).

    Can I replace the boots or am I up for new shafts? Who is a good supplier of these?

    Thanks heaps
    Andrew

    Lewin from peugeot spares (3353 4448) in brisbane has most parts for 504's on the shelf, he can also order stuff in and also has access to a range of second hand parts. his prices are reasonable too and he can send via courier to your door if needed.

    New ones are not easy to get and are difficult to fit [ unlike Jap FWD cars] .You may have to get S/H shafts as I did .

    Thanks for the fast replies. I didn't realise Lewin was still dealing with pug parts - I dealt with Lewin many years ago.

    I am capable of removing the entire drive shaft out of the vehicle, but am unsure how to replace the metal sleeve part.

    Will have to do some more research.

    Thanks

    I may have 2 new shaft kits. But fitting them is not easy and may need workshop facilities.

    Thanks Con...getting the parts is not an issue. I have downloaded the workshop manual and studied that. I have a 20 ton press and enough tools to rebuild landrovers so should have enough gear there.

    Cheers

    The main thing you need to do when dismantling the shafts is to not disturb the needle roller bearings when you remove the sleeves ,as the manual will tell you

    If it is only minor tear, clean it up with petrol or similar and glue/silicon or similar over the tear. it will last for years and keep the grease in and dirt out.
