Sorry im new to this, so may have posted in the wrong place! if so, i'm sorry!! I'm extremely 'mechanically challenged' and dont know very much about cars, espcially jeeps!
I live in the british virgin isles, and bought a 1997 Jeep wrangler sahara 4.0L 2 weeks ago. Its VERY hilly here, and therefor needed a 4WD. When i was driving up our hill where i live, i head a massive crunch/bang and a lot of banging from underneath near the rear axel.
I stopped immediately and looked underneath. It appears the bracket holding the rear universal joint have snapped clean off, leaving it hanging down, it turned when i had to cringe and tried to drive it out of the way of on coming cars! i'm guessing its the universale joint, which turns the back axel (?) all the bearings have gone, but the drive shaft (again ??) still look intact, just the joint connecting the two has snapped!
Has any got any ideas, or suggestions on how i can fix this, we have a napa here, but their very 'unreliable' if i need to get parts! but im strugglign other wise! i have pictures if my description is very vague!
