Bang When Changing Gears


Recommended Posts


i have a 1999 mondeo st24. i have just replaced the drivers front wheel bearing and wishbone. whilst replacing these the drive shaft was removed.

after putting it back together ive just took for a drive and there is an alarming bang when releasing clutch after changing gear. also just jacked up the car and the wheel seems to jam after a couple of revolutions. if i turn it back a bit it will release and spin a couple more revolutions before jamming again.

what the hell have i done wrong? im moments off scrapping the car.

any help would be appreciated. cheers john

mm is the drive shaft located in gearbox properly or one of the bearings come off on the inner cv joint ?? regards pete

yeah mate thats all fine. if i take the driveshaft out and turn the hub on the gearbox by hand it still jams.
