What are the defects?
The bushing or the universal joint spider may detach from its seat.
In addition, a tear may happen in the weld between the propeller shaft and the propeller shaft head as this weld is located at the highest stressed area.
What are the hazards?
If the bushing or universal joint spider detaches from its seat, fragments of the propeller shaft may exit the periphery of the vehicle causing a potential hazard for road users.
If the weld tears between the propeller shaft and the propeller shaft head, the propeller shaft can damage or destroy the surroundings with air lines and cable sets resulting in the loss of components and causing a potential hazard for road users.
