V70 AWD, 2000, Viscous Coupler, Drive Shaft

Postby erinsheff » Sat Nov 28, 2009 4:47 pm

I had my drive shaft removed after a leaky viscous coupler was diagnosed. I didn't think the cost of the repair was worth it since my driving didn't require it. The drive shaft has been in my garage for 2.5 years; I was hoping to sell it. I'm in North Bay, Sonoma County, CA. Is there any market? Do I give it away, or take it back to the dealer to dispose of?

Hello

what is the mileage on that drive shaft?

You may always sell it but since many of the drive shafts need new support bearing mileage is important

Can you give me a more detailed descriptions about how to remove the drive shaft and viscous coupler? What tools will I need? My viscous coupler produces loud noise and I'm thinking to take it out. Thanks a lot! BTW, a new viscous coupling from myvoloparsonline costs ~$1100.
