  Note
t  To obtain the quietest possible running, the entire propshaft is balanced during manufacture. It is not possible to balance the entire propshaft or separate propshaft tubes with workshop equipment. Therefore, in the event of damage to the front or rear propshaft tube, the entire propshaft must always be renewed.
t  Keep propshaft straight; store and transport fully extended only.
t  Before removing, mark positions of all parts relative to each other. Reinstall in the same position otherwise imbalance will be excessive, the mountings could be damaged causing rumbling noises.
