To drive the rear wheels on the car is optional transfer box, propeller shaft,
rear main transmission and rear drive shafts. To equalize the rotational speed of the front and rear wheels is used interaxle differential which distributes torque between front and rear axles of the vehicle. If slippage of the wheels on one axle of the vehicle the torque transmitted to the other axle, automatically increases. This improves the traction of the car and the road surface. If the clutch wheels of one axle and the road surface decreases, and decreases the torque transmitted to the axle, thereby increasing the stability of the vehicle by skidding. Regardless of this, the differential allows the wheels to rotate at different speeds, which is necessary for the normal operation of the anti-lock braking systems.
The torque from the gearbox and final drive is transmitted to the four wheels via the drive shaft. Each of the shafts is inserted into the wheel hub and is secured with the bolt.
Since the propeller shaft
in the manufacture of balancing exposed, the unacceptable buildup of dirt on it. When lifting a vehicle for maintenance it is advisable to clean the propeller shaft
and check its technical condition. Whenever driveshaft
removed to prevent unbalance to be installed in the same position.
Symptom propeller shaft are usually noise or vibration while driving.
