Volkswagen Propshafts: The Tiguan, Crafter,and Touareg
The VW Tiguan has a twin propshaft fitted with a rubber coupling on the gearbox and differential end. The design of the shaft is a plunging CV with a centre bearing bolted to the chassis. The common failing on this propshaft is the perishing of the centre bearing rubber. We offer a brand-new genuine VW shaft to resolve this issue, as a more financially viable option than a repair, due to the cost of the components and extensive labour involved to repair a Tiguan propshaft. Furthermore, our genuine VW shafts comes with 18 months warranty, an additional benefit and piece of mind over a repair.
The VW Crafter can have various wheel base lengths: short, medium, long to extra long. Each and every variant requires a different propshaft set up. Therefore a number of Crafterpropshafts are kept in stock, enabling us to cover the vast majority of these options. However, should we not have it in stock, we can build it for you. Different repair options are available depending on your budget and the length of time you will be keeping the vehicle for. We always fit the original equipment centre bearing, ensuring quality and longevity of the part in addition to a smoother driving experience.
This is a twin shaft propshaft with a rubber coupling on the gearbox end and a CV on the differential end. It has a plunging CV joint in the centre. Next to this, is the centre bearing, mounted to the propshaft. A common failure is the rubber perishing on this centre bearing. Our experience with the Touareg suggests that the harder the driving style of the owner, the greater the propensity of failure of the centre bearing rubber. Towing also seems to diminish the life expectancy of the centre bearing rubber. The centre bearing can be replaced if required. However, alternative repair options will also be discussed with the customer depending on the mileage of the vehicle and the budget available.
