Guys,
Anyone know where i can get my driveshaft rebuild?

My waja RH driveshaft is worn out and i have replaced it with aftermarket brand but it vibrates..I claim warranty and the replacement shaft still vibrate but only slightly. The shop did warn me earlier to go for original replacement but its way to expensive for a driveshaft at 600++. They said they have similar customer feedback on aftermarket shaft for 1.8 model. Aftermarket brand is 200++.
below is the pic of my driveshaft..the outer part is similar with most driveshaft but the inner rubber boot design is kinds different.

I dont want to spend so much on this car. i know it can be rebuild but i dont know where. pls someone guide me.

if you can't get a recommendation for your area,
Btw, drive shaft repair is just disassemble, spot weld sikit gosok gosok sahaja. Dont expect miracle
agreed, it's crude but pretty much how the engineering shops recon the clicking cv joint, just by adding metal

Thanks for the replies.
Confirmed its the driveshaft. cars vibrates violently when accelerating between 90kmh to 110kmh. I changed it once last week but it vibrates in a different manner. Removed the shaft and discover that the new shaft is longer by almost an inch ( silly me for not checking the length before installing ). The shop change to another unit. This time it vibrate a lot less but its still there. Shop did mentioned they will refund if problem still there.

BTW i am in Melaka.

I tot driveshaft rebuild is that they change whatever moving components in the joints?

Maybe finding a used driveshaft from a chop shop is better? Waja driveshaft is abundant I think, and chop shop also have warranty.
Hmmm..never tought of that as mine is 1.8 Renault model and very2 difficult to find parts. I will try few chop shop...i know one specific shop that chop a 1.8 model 1-2 years ago.

Oh..never now that. Do you know how does the rubber boot for the inner joint is secured? normally it uses a metal clip.mine is somewhat secure inside.
Your's probably crimped on the inside. Shouldnt matter much if crimped outside or inside, so long as it's the correct length and it fits.
