The intermediate shaft problems are exclusive to the 00+'* only. I don't think the 92-99'* were affected at all.

I gave this a shot, and it worked, its been 6 months now and still no noise..

Pulled boot down an inch and sprayed Amsoil 5th wheel synthetic gear grease in top of joint using the supplied straw. Noise dissapeared.

The 3rd replacment was installed today on the car. Little under 17k miles. MY mom in her late 50'* is the owner and primary driver - and I highly doubt is is driving it hard. Hopefully this will be the last one.

WOW
I thought I had it bad. She'* in now for her 2nd at 62000 mi. Last time was Jan '05. Gotta pay for it again 'cause the part is "only warranteed for a year". Can't wait to see how long the "new and improved" one lasts. Good luck with your mom'* car

Default This REALLY gets OLD!!

I have an 00 SE. I have lost count of the number of window regulators and intermediate shafts (both replace AND lubes) I have had since new.

It also seems that about once a year GM is coming out with a revision that will fix things once and for all. RIGHT!!

14 months ago there was a new shaft put in to the tune of $250. I went in the other day and now they tell me there is a revised part yet again and I'm looking at about $300+ due to labor costs.

They won't even contact GM for me because the car is over 5 years old. NEVER EVER will I buy another GM product. It'* one thing to have problems. It'* another thing to come to the party when you know you have poorly designed parts.

My New Year'* Wish List. A CLASS ACTION lawsuit against GM. One for windows regulators and one for int. shafts.

I can see why their corporate bonds are junk bonds. Their bonds are like their parts.

I have had my intermediate shaft done at the dealer under warranty several times.
At this point now out of warranty I did it myself..
First.. the link with the photos is excellant..
A couple things I will add to it that I noticed on my job...
first, I was worried about alignment and carefully marked the shaft before removing..
Dont worry about that..
The shaft halves are crimped NOT to come apart unless you force them apart... so dont worry.
If you cut the rubber sleeve on the inside under the dash.. dont just cut a slit.. at the top of your slit.. make a T.. this will allow the flaps to open much wider and will allow you to get a wrench on the nut without the steering wheel rotation...
after it will close right up when you stuff the flaps back inside the clear tube.
Another small item is the clear tube on the motor side will probably come completely off when you remove the shaft.. no problem, just leave it off until after you reinstall the shaft, then undo the bottom and slide it back on... trying to put the shaft in with the tube attached was a pain for me..
my 2 cents.. thanks again for the great photos... Mr Clicky is gone again for awhile..

i had my intermed shaft replaced at 36k on my 05 bonnie and the noise was gone for like a few months my car now has 39k and it happens a little more frequently. i was wondering if the shaft could also cause my alignment to be messed up cause my car pulls to the left adn it shakes when im on the highway

I just replace the shaft in my 03 I just bought over the holidays. It had been lubed at least once before, but the noise had returned. The new one is working perfectly.

You can see from the picture, the new shaft has been redesigned. The old part # is 26100571. The new one is 26068295. Lets hope this one remains silent!

When I called my local GM dealer here in Canada to get a price on this new shaft, they quoted me $279.00 plus tax! Talk about being "shafted"!! When I contacted http://allgmparts.net/ they sold me one for just over $100.00. The exact same part! They sent it via the post office for about $12.00.
