Does anyone know if the universal joints on the vitara propshaft are replaceable?
And how many miles you get from these joints before they need renewing?

I had one fail on my S when it was only three months old and less than 4k miles.
My main dealer replaced the whole propshaft under warranty. I think it was all one part.
It took four days to get one from europe.

The rear one on my vitara looks like it's leaking grease but not sure if it's just dirt, can't quite reach underneath to check it.Universal joints on propshaft Receiv10

Sounds like it's a complete new propshaft then if the universal joints fail!
Wonder how much that costs outside of warranty?

It doesn't look bad to me, how does it compare with the other side. If there is no play in it, I wouldn't worry about it. Get the dealer to have a look at it a couple of weeks before the warranty runs out. Graham
