What is a Double Cardan CV H Yoke?
A Double Cardan CV H Yoke is a type of drive shaft coupling designed for use with a constant velocity (CV) joint. It is a two-piece yoke that features a center u-joint and two CV joints. It is used to connect the drive shaft to the transmission in some all-wheel drive vehicles.
What is its purpose?
The Double Cardan CV H Yoke is designed to provide a flexible connection between the drive shaft and the transmission while maintaining a constant velocity. This allows for smoother power transmission between the transmission and the wheels, resulting in improved acceleration and handling.
How can I tell if my Double Cardan CV H Yoke is faulty?
If your Double Cardan CV H Yoke is faulty, you will likely notice a vibration or shaking while driving. This can be caused by a worn or damaged CV joint, or by a worn or broken u-joint. You may also hear a clicking or clunking sound, which is indicative of faulty or worn CV joint or u-joint.
Can a faulty Double Cardan CV H Yoke cause damage?
Yes, if your Double Cardan CV H Yoke is not functioning properly, it can cause damage to the drive shaft, transmission, and other components. A damaged or worn yoke can cause vibrations and excess stress on the drive shaft, resulting in premature wear and failure.
How do I replace a Double Cardan CV H Yoke?
To replace a Double Cardan CV H Yoke, you will need to:
- Disconnect the drive shaft from the transmission.
- Remove the old yoke and the u-joint connecting the drive shaft to the yoke.
