    Astra Driveshafts

    Some may know of my recent troubles, today i finished fixing the wishbone, got everything connected, topped up new gearbox oil (driveshaft had popped out) none leaking so thought id take her for a spin.

    Put her in gear and all i can hear is metal on metal scraping the driveshaft is rotating but not transferring power through the first rubber boot (closest to gearbox). Do i need to somehow connect it back up? or does this mean a new driveshaft?

    Im not too certain on the workings of the driveshafts so some general info would also be great cheers!
