Giubo Cracking Hidden Topic

16394 Views 30 Replies 17 Participants Last post by  oscarvan
Hidden in 'Highest Mileage Transits' thread is an interesting topic about cracked flexible connections on Transit drive shaft called a Giubo. These rubber joints are apparently showing cracks at low mileages often enough that replacements are out of stock. Some Transit owners report issues getting dealers to replace under warranty. This topic kind of hijacked the thread & IMO deserves its own thread.

One thing I didn't see reported was a case where the Giubo actually failed.

I would think the 3.5 Eco owners should be most concerned. That 400 lbs ft of torque, esp if used as a play thing, or pulling a trailer, might give the Joo-bo a boo-bo? Disclaimer: no offense intended to the 3.7, with its joo-bo-gentle 260 lbs ft!0:)
