Proper Propshaft Angle

Post by wanderdüne » Tue Nov 20, 2018 1:44 pm

I just replaced the front CV joint (at long last; and it went fine) on my 2003 XC90 T6. I am seeing that the front section of the propshaft is angled to the left slightly, then goes straight back from the center bearing to the rear end. I removed the propshaft some time ago, and cannot remember if it had that same angle when I removed it. I took pics at the time, but none that show that discrete part.

So my question is: Is the propshaft supposed to come off the front at this angle? I can't see how I could have mounted it "wrong" due to the plate that the center bearing is screwed into, but it's bugging me not to know for sure.

Thanks

Yes, they run at an angle on that vehicle. The center support has no odd bolt hole offset that you missed.

I had the same question several months ago - for the same reasons. They have an angle to them. Glad you got it sorted.
