Suspected Intermediate Shaft Spline


GreenFence

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 

I suspect my'10 Aurion suffers from the  intermediate shaft spline issue. I get a slight knock feeling in the wheel when applying brake or throttle at low speeds or when turning at low speeds (sometimes) no real noise from what I can tell. It's all just feeling in the wheel. Just wanting to confirm if these symptoms do indeed sound like the shaft spline issue that these cars were prone to having.

I was looking at getting Toyota to replace it if it is indeed the case. How would (roughly) would I be looking at? Or am I better off getting my mechanic to do it. I've read that greasing the shaft can also stop it. Would this be a cheaper alternative? Either way, I know nothing about these vehicles so I would prefer Toyota to do it.

I also just wanted to confirm that this will not pose an safety issues or cause any other problems to the vehicle in the meantime.

 

Cheers

I have had mine repaired by Toyota three times.

All they do is replace the grease with heavier stuff.

It is starting to knock again now for me as well. Time to get them to regrease.

It is nmot a safety issue.

They know that it is a known issue so They fixed it for free.

Tell them that you are not paying.

 

I'm not sure they would given the fact my car is  2010 model. They might say it's wear and tear. Worth a shot I suppose
