Repacked with some new CV joint molybdenum grease (not too much) and protected with two coats of high temp spray paint.
Old VS New
Came back to SJ with the aftermarket shaft, tested 'till 95 mph no vibrations whatsoever.. Now let's have some fun and try to fix that under engineered shaft...

Wow, that's an awesome fix! Thanks! BTW I ended up getting the cheap cardan from Amazon, it will be installed tomorrow by a local shop. I'll tie up the old one on my roof and make it back to San Jose and if the new part gives me any problem, well it's Amazon Prime... At least I'll have the option to fix (or improve) the old one on my bench with Jimi's trick!
Hi folks, I was driving from SF to LA when the infamous rubber holding the central bearing of my drive shaft aka cardan shaft got destroyed... Can someone please recommend and indy that can change my drive shaft in West Hollywood? This is something I could do at home in my shop but since I'm too far I was thinking about getting this: https://www.amazon.com/Propeller-Porsche-Cayenne-Touareg-7L6521102/dp/B019W5LLQ0/ref=pd_sbs_263_1?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B019W5LLQ0&pd_rd_r=DVEM8FXKG68HJSM3P5HB&pd_rd_w=4rdsB&pd_rd_wg=amEuq&psc=1&refRID=DVEM8FXKG68HJSM3P5HB And have any mechanic I can find on the street to replace my broken one, but the shipping time will be too long. Or just go to LA dismantler (crossing my finger) and ask them to replace mine with what they have. What you suggest? Thanks!!
If the tranny is switching to the P position, there is nothing wrong with the cable. It could be something with the key ignition block, when I put in Park I can feel some mechanical engagement/disengagement in the key ignition assembly. So it may be a simple lack of lubricant in that part.
Disconnect the battery for 20 minutes and try again.
Is the tranny switching to P when this position is selected?
I just got the car and I'll keep it at least for the next two, three years. Now I have plenty of time to find a new or used oil pan without having the problem of a dripping oil plug!
How to fix a stripped drain plug on the Tiptronic transmission? I was trying to find a solution when I realized "do I really need a drain plug?" If the Tiptronic was intended to never have an oil change why there is a drain plug? Anyway... yes, we do need to change the oil and the filter! at least very 80K-90K miles! Just a couple tips... 1) the drain plug will easily strip, 2) Use the Toyota type IV OIL @ 7$ per quarter The tranny speak Japanese so don't waste your money at the Porsche dealer.. And finally, you need to change the filter so the oil pan will be removed anyway and the oil with it That's why I decided to not spend 180$ for a new oil pan.
Update, this morning I pumped inside the tranny at least one more quarter of oil, then I left the motor running until the oil was at 40 degree and letting it dripping out before torquening the filling plug. Unfortunately I think that I stripped the drain plug, my dynamometric wrench wasn't working, I was waiting to ear the click forcing the bolt and now the bolt keep turning. The car runs fine, I'll wait a couple days to see if it's dripping from the drain plug. If that would be the case, what you suggest?
I mad a mess... oil everywhere, anyway I could fill up the tranny with only 7 and half quarter. I used a brake bleeder as a pump but it was too slow, I just kept pumping the fluid until it started to drip out, the temperature of the transmission pan was around 43 degree. Should I keep trying to fill up the tranny? Now if I open the fill plug did the oil will come out?
