Well.. Here are the pictures of my broken up driveshaft on my Cobalt SS... A couple weeks ago my car just stopped moving and under further inspection I found that my driveshaft was busted up.. So I take the car to the dealer and they fixed it.. Well the mechanic comes back and they call me to say my tranny is leaking so I say ok and they tell me they need to look at it.. Well a day later I get another call and they tell me my tranny needs to be replaced or fix.. Well under inspection they found some gears and such were broken and can't not explain why any of this happened... So they had to order me a brand new tranny.. So they order a tranny from "Source" who supply's the tranny to GM.... Well 1 week later they call me and say that they have been told they have to order it from Saturn.. So I am getting a little pissed off that this is taking so long and I will be calling GM head Office.. Cause since I got the car I have had problesm with cosmetics and then now this... So I am not a happy person when it comes to this car right now.. I love the car and all.. I don't regret buying this.. But I am alittle unpleased about this particular one...


Sorry for some dark pictures.. some were night pictures (when it first happened) and some were the next day I went for more snaps.. But its hard to take pictures under there and hold the camera straight and still.. But you get the point..

Here are the pics

Some pictures of grease all over my wheel










The broken driveshaft and grease again









The other 3 pictures I left out.. they were night shots and arn't important.. cause you can see the damage from the last 4 pictures..

The driveshaft or halfshaft?? Sorry Im old fashioned I guess, I refer to driveshafts as RWD driveshafts or as SDS s/c system driveshafts... That does suck though. Hope ya get a quick fix!

that would be a half-shaft.. but damn man that looks like it broke pretty easily.... it remonds me of honda shafts that run turbos at the track... those things snap like toothpicks

Yeah man how hard had you been driving that thing? I've been moderately hard on mine, most of the time though its just normal driving. I hope you weren't babying that thing and it broke!

Yeah man.. I was babying that thing when it broke... I don't want to drive it hard till I brake it in.. The manual says you don't need to but I am gonna do it anywaz.. I mean the odd time I gave it (maybe 3 times or so) and that was it.. And nothing that should brake this crap...

My buddy drives the piss out of his and has no problem.. I don't do much with mine and it brakes.. Well maybe I should drive the piss out of it and things will not break..

Damn, Those pics look just like my SVT Focus when the trans grenaded.. Somehow the input shaft jammed and the gears exploded and blew a hole in the trans case the size of my fist... Along with blowing up my halfshaft too ... Had to go through the same mess waiting for parts... Hopefully everything works out ok .. and soon !
