      W12 Propshaft

      Damon,
      Thanks for helping to think this through. I am sure the markings were all along the shaft (as you can see partially in the initial photo).
      I now also have an option to visit a specialized...

      W12 Prop-shaft

      Fellow-Phaetonista,

      Does anyone know whether it is possible to "split" the drive-shaft to the rear-axle?

    5. Mittellager (rubber mounted bearing at the center of the rear-drive axle)

      In the ongoing 2-year quest for the cause of annoying vibrations we found quite severe play in the rubber-mounting of the bearing in the center of the rear-cardan.

      Does anyone have any experience...

      Driving with both front shaft removed

      Still struggling with vibration-issues, today we removed both front-drive-shaft to see whether they contribute to the distasteful vibration.

    7. Wheel issues, severe unbalance after powdercoating

      About a year ago my rims (with limited curb-damage) were treated by a "specialist" company where they were sandblasted, repaired and powdercoated. Also, the Dunlop Sport SP01 were changed for...

      To look into the shudder/vibrations I left the parking brake off (chocks!) to be able to wiggle the wheel around a bit to check the bearings.

      Confirmation that this is normal would be nice. I...

      Engine noise W12

      I have the feeling that my engine makes a more grunty noise now instead of the familiar turbine-like whine.
