Drive shaft or Rear End problems??

I went out this weekend, and got about a half mile into the trail when it sounded like a rock it my skidplate pan. I stopped to take a look, and there was no rocks anywhere near the rhino. I went to put the rhino back into 2 high and it didnt move. I took a look under the machine with it in high and drive shaft was spinning from the motor like usual but it wasnt turning the diff?

Has anyone else had this problem? I plan on pulling the rear end this weekend after I get my cage and bed off.

Mike

The driveshaft splines or coupler to the rearend pinion could have simply stripped out ...check this first ....Lance

I agree with Lance, the coupler is probably stripped. Easy and cheap fix. Remove the 2 bolts on the rear diff, pull it back and remove the driveshaft. Becareful of the button and spring on the ends of the driveshaft.
