Check of the hinge of the driveshaft

If there is a suspicion that universal hinges publish a jingling or knocking sound, check them on wear. Check, whether the crosspiece in forks knocks, or whether shlitsa are worn-out, and replace the faulty driveshaft with the new.

The noise published by the universal hinge, it is possible to differentiate from other noise because the rhythm of its knock or jingle will be coordinated with speed of movement easily. Especially noise is appreciable at engine start on a place and at roll (when the brake effect of the engine is shown in transmission.
