It's a fact of life that parts that spin hundreds and hundreds of millions of times as you push the gas (and even when you don't) will eventually wear out. Drive shafts are one of those things and more commonly it is actually not the shaft that gives out but the constant velocity joint or CV joint goes first. The sign of a bad CV joint will typically be a clicking sound coming from the front end while turning. Another sign is that if the flexible boot that covers the CV joint is cracked it will start spewing grease everywhere and likely make a mess AND you will start to smell burnt oil as it gets on the hot engine block, etc. If you don't catch it early enough and you get small particles of dirt or rock in there the CV joint will get destroyed in no time.

There are kits out there to replace/rebuild CV joints as well as CV joint boot kits but by the time you do the labor on either and buy the actual kit you may as well just replace the whole thing. Be sure to recycle your old drive shafts.

BTW, MINI charges upwards of $600 for EACH drive shaft. These are NOT OEM driveshafts and to be honest we have a pretty poor satisfaction rate with these. They are a good value and you can buy nearly 2 1/2 of them for the price of an OEM driveshaft but there is a risk for failure.

Sold left and right specific and priced PER side. Please see drop down menu for options.
