The Car Salon, Tirecraft division provides yoke replacement services to Calgary, AB. and surrounding area. You are driving along a stretch of road through Calgary, AB. when you apply brakes in anticipation of an upcoming stoplight. Your vehicle stops, but not without unusual clunking sounds coming from the rear of your vehicle. You turn around to see if someone has hit you, but there’s no one there. The next time you stop, you hear the same clunking noises. If this happens to you, you should consider stopping into our automotive facility so our reliable mechanics can perform an inspection of the driveshaft yoke. In some case, they may find the cause of the clunking noises to be a broken driveshaft yoke requiring a replacement.
Driveshaft yokes are located on the ends of the driveshaft. One yoke connects the driveshaft to the rear end of the vehicle while the other yoke reaches into the transmission. The drive shaft sends the power from the transmission and turns the differential, which moves the wheels. These connecting components help transfer your vehicle’s rotational energy from the source of the transmission to the moving wheels along the highway.
Today, there are a few types of yokes in use on vehicles: tube yokes, slip yokes, and end yokes. The yoke application in your vehicle depends on the type of connection between the driveshaft and the transmission.
If you are worried about the state of your driveshaft’s yokes, then simply turn the driveshaft back and forth. If there is free-play in the driveshaft, the yoke may be stripped. In some cases, the yoke may crack and even snap completely. If you feel free-play when driving your vehicle through Calgary, AB. then consider making an appointment with our mechanics for a yoke replacement service.
