Toyota corolla verso

Recommended Posts

Please can someone give me some advice! I have a toyota corolla verso 2004. 

I believe my clutch has gone as I pulled away in 1st gear and there was a bang from underneath and there was no drive through the gears.had it towed and it turns out the drive shaft has snapped in half too!

This is not the first time a drive shaft has snapped on one of these.  I doubt that there is a clutch problem.

The drive shaft rusts (out of sight) under a rubber vibration damper that is fitted the shaft. Eventually the driveshaft becomes thin enough to break.

A new driveshaft is the fix.  Not a particularly difficult part to fit.

A secondhand one might do, but you'd have to check carefully it wasn't going the same way as yours!

This problem is not unique to Toyota, by any means.  Unless the corrosion is stopped (it's difficult to know it's happening at all) then it is just a case of 'when', more than 'if'.
