How to recognise a worn out drive shaft on a Citroen DSPosted: October 11, 2011
We recently had a Citroen DS23 in the workshop because of a knock, knock, knock sound when turning corners.
This is the tell-tale sign that an outer universal joint is worn out and sure enough, upon inspection the left side joint was in a fairly poor state. It must have been making the noise for some time as they will start to do this with only a little bit of play and this one had more than a little bit, but was by no means the worst I have seen.
The good news is that new drive shafts are readily available for all Citroen DS and ID models made after 1966.
