Hi all.
Had my 05 Sorento for three years, it has been fantastic until yesterday.

Big bang drive shaft snapped through the side of the box.

£6k parts from Kia car worth around the same. Can anyone help?

Thanks in anticipation Martin

Prop shafts appear to get forgotten on service.Mine had full dealer service for 4 years untill i started to do it myself.Grease nipples still had rubber covers on nipples still stuck on with black paint from when prop was made.On service schedule there is no mention of greasing or in handbook.Possibly the cause of so many failing.
