Installing propeller shaft, All-wheel drive (AWD)
In general the propeller shaft should be installed in a straight line to avoid vibrations. This is especially important when installing the SIPS member,
when there are no locating holes in the SIPS member to assist positioning.
The propeller shaft CV joints must be handled carefully and not treated roughly. CV joints should be held as straight as possible when they are not
mounted on the propeller shaft flanges. If the CV joint is twisted or pressed lengthwise grease can be forced out, this can affect the life of the CV joint
and may also get on to the exhaust pipe.
