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.

As stated before this is your problem.....no need to pull the bed or cage the diff comes out the bottom.
