Bloody Hell Whats going to go wrong next :(

Okay now after I've finally got everything working good... what do I find? But more problems!!

I have a constant squeeling noise which comes after the car has been driven around for a while. It also goes away when you apply the brakes. I thought it was the front bearings but they have been replaced now.

Now the sound seems to be coming from underneith the car near the middle... my guess being the bearings at the end of the auto box that the tailshaft goes into. I have a feeling that while putting the tailshaft in, I may have knocked the bearings out of place. Does anyone have a clue how to replace these little bastards?

It seems like everytime I fix a problem, I make 3 new ones :(

Smile Trouble!

I doubt you have disrupted the bearings, as they r pretty solid little buggers. Your talishaft only goes into a oil seal then onto the spline. There shouldnt have been any dramas fitting that back up.

Its not the fanbelts etc??..I know thats a silly question, but anyway.

Maybe the brass bush that goes from the gearbox spline to the crank/flywheel is worn. Is anything rubbing/hanging down on the tail shaft as it spins?

can u hear it in neutral or just in drive gears? Do u have a 2 piece tailshaft...what car have u got?

I have a squeak in my car. Its caused by the brake calipers not completely releasing. How is this fixed? I haven't been bothered to get it fixed as I've had bigger problems. I.e replacing the engine.

Thumbs up Brakes

When you do your brakes next...make sure the guide pin is well greased...this is what ur calipers slide along. if this is not lubed then u will have problems with the brakes sticking when u apply or release the brake pedal.

There is only a bush there that the slip yoke runs on. I very much doubt you hurt it. Look for: Tailshaft fouling, universal joints siezed, or the obvious culprit, somewhere in the brakes.

My Car is a EA2 S-Pac. The noise definately seems to be coming from where the tailshaft goes into the Auto. I had the universal joints on the tailshaft only a few months ago as well, so I doubt it's that.

Any other idea's on what it might be?

dust on the splines of the driveshaft can cause a sort of humming squeal usually more noticable on acceleration and can be fixed by spraying copeous quantities if CRC, WD40 or similar into/onto the splines where the driveshaft enters the transmission.

If you have a look at the boots that cover your slide pins on your brake calipers i bet you will have a hole in them. With a hole in the boot moisture is then let in and the slides rust up. You should be able to push them back and forth inside the caliper.
What i have done instead of buying new calipers like every1 else seems to do, simply use some CRC and a hammer and carefully free up the slide. The push it all of the way out of sleave and regrease inside, then put the pins back inside the slide again. Now buy some new boots and refit them and it should be all fixed. Becarful not to score the pins or they will not slide correctly

If you need some more help on this topic let me know.
