Flexshaft Coupling/Giubo recall: Has Anybody had U Joint replacement yet?
AFTER TALKING TO DEALER AGAIN
permanent fix (U Joint) is offered only on these vehicles.
129/130 WB 3.2 diesel
138WB 3.7 single wheel
148WB 3.7 dually
All others get temp Giubo replaced every 40k miles.
I've seen one, he paid for it. It requires driveshaft replacement for coupler to mate U Joint. (Shaft is $1000)
I was thinking of taking mine in tomorrow morning for Recall Service @ 27k miles.
Recall calls for permanent U Joint: "AS A PERMANENT REPAIR, YOUR DEALER WILL REPLACE THE FRONT DRIVESHAFT SECTION AND INSTALL A UNIVERSAL JOINT FREE OF CHARGE" (Ford Recall 19S38 - OCT 25, 2019 )
Great, but any dealer tells you: "No, You get Giubo"
Who do I have to talk to/What do I have to say to get the U Joint??
It's right there on Ford's Recall Letter.
Should I just go for the better greater Giubo as that seems to be all that's available?.
However, then my vehicle may be checked off for that recall number, and not be eligible for the U Joint without a big fight later.
Thoughts? Has anyone succeeded in replacing with U Joint?
It's rare for me to have time off to drive 1.5hrs to dealer, so I'm leaning toward the temp fix, though if I can demand
the part delivered in, I'll wait for that. Nothing but time right now.
Would you insist dealer drives before replacing to affirm there is no vibration problem prior to fixing?
I suppose with Giubo there's little to no risk for that. I think I would for driveshaft replace..
Just received a NEW Recall (NOV 2019) for the coupler which was replaced last year. I have a 2016 passenger 3.7 med roof van. They only have replacement couplers for now if you have 40k miles since the replacement took place. The NEW final fix will be ready later ??? Wonder if everyone is...www.fordtransitusaforum.comLast week I was visiting with a friend that has a 2015 Transit with the same specs as mine. He has over 200,000 miles and recently had the permanent fix to the qiubo recall. He did not get a U-joint. He got a new flex disc. His dealership claimed this to be a new and improved flex disc and...www.fordtransitusaforum.com
