2000 v70 xc propeller shaft carrier bearing replacement

Post by dockterj » Mon Feb 25, 2019 9:33 am

Is this center support bearing replacable? I can't see how it can be disassembled. It looks like a shrink fit of the knuckle into the driveshaft?

If I can replace the bearing for under $100 it is worth it to get one more winter out of it. The car isn't worth putting a rebuilt driveshaft into.

Depends on skill and tools available. You can grind off swaged in UJs and replace for about $25

How about calling Erie fir a used one?

If you aren’t driving it enough to justify a $100 repair, you can probably Uber for less

Makes quite the noise doesn't it?

Same thing happened to my wife's and I just took the shaft off and forgot about it. The car drives just fine without the prop shaft.

There is a spline and the two parts are slid together. You have to heat the area with a propane torch or oxy-acetylene torch and then it will come apart. Use green bearing mount LocTite to put it together after driving off the center support bearing and installing the new assembly. driveshaftparts.com has them.

Thanks Jimmy! I'll try heating it before beating it. I didn't see any indication it was splined so was afraid it was a press fit.

I would suggest that you scribe marks on the shaft so that it can be reassembled in the same position that it was taken apart. I was unaware that it was a splined so I have never seen them but if it isn't keyed in some way you will want to get it back as originally built so as to maintain the balance.

Yes! Absolutely keep the original orientation of the two parts. Look and make sure there is no set screw also. I don't recall seeing the set screw past early 90s RWD shafts.
