Driveshafts and CV joint added to Shaftec’s New To Range selection

Date: Wednesday 26 June 2024

Birmingham-based automotive remanufacturer Shaftec Automotive has expanded its New To Range portfolio even further this month. These new additions to the selection include 41 new driveshafts, and one new CV joint.

Key applications for these new products include the BM357R all-wheel driveshaft for the BMW X7 (2019), the ME219LR all-wheel driveshaft for the Mercedes X Class and Nissan Navara (2015), and the VO253L driveshaft front/all-wheel driveshaft for the Volvo XC60 II (2017). It doesn’t stop there though, with new driveshafts added for vehicle manufacturers that include Audi, Land Rover, Skoda, Seat, Mitsubishi, Dacia, Renault and much more.

The CV joint added to the range is the CV2103N model for the VW Crafter vehicle (2016-2024), which runs on diesel. Each of the new parts in the range align with select front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive vehicles that run on petrol, diesel, electricity and liquified petroleum gas (LPG).

These follow the latest additions from May, which featured 13 driveshafts, two brake calipers, one steering rack and one steering column expanding Shaftec’s range further.

Shaftec Marketing Manager Adrian Kitchen said: “We are always seeking to expand our New To Range product line to provide our customers with more choices. With the addition of new driveshafts and a CV joint, Shaftec is able to offer even greater variety and coverage for a different range of vehicles.

“Remanufactured parts can sometimes surpass new ones in terms of performance and reliability. Through rigorous testing and quality checks, we ensure our components meet or exceed the highest standards. Our commitment is to deliver high-quality, cost-effective solutions, giving customers confidence that their vehicles can stay in optimal condition.”

Here are some signs that your driveshafts might need changing:

  • Inspect the driveshaft: Look for any signs of damage such as cracks or dents.
  • Check the U-joints: Check if there is any play or looseness in them.
  • Check for vibrations: If you feel any vibrations while driving, it could be an indication of a damaged driveshaft.
  • Listen for noises: If you hear any clunking or grinding noises while driving, it could be an indication of a damaged driveshaft.

Shaftec always recommends that if drivers notice any issues with their vehicle, they seek the advice of an expert.
