    Be interested to see where you have got that from.
    What I say is "It doesnt matter" even if it does. My van and cars I dont check for seized shafts. And has anyone on here posted where a seiezed shaft has done anything? Wheres all the posts ? "My bike shaft has seized and fuc ked my bike" ?

    Mine 'ate' the rear rubber gaiter from the inside. Thats how I knew it was fecked. After a lot of heart ache I got BMW UK to replace shaft and final drive as a good will gesture.

    It seems to me that the UJ was 'bending' up towards the top of said shaft and muching the gaiter...... It was subtle and then a small hole appeared.

    I explained all this in nauseating detail to BMW and sent this picture and they paid up.

    .... it's the other way round....

    The 'well sealed' gaitor is sucked onto the spinning shaft drive knuckle as the swing arm moves up and down on the suspension. Acts like a bellows.

    The metal bar on the inside of the rubber gaitor is supposed to stop that happening, but it doesn't always.

    Mine was the same at service last year (2 years old and 8500 miles), took the mechanic a good couple of hours to sort it out
