Hyundai Kona: Propeller Shaft Assembly / Propeller Shaft Repair procedures

Removal
1.
After making a match mark on the flange yoke and transaxle companion, remove the propeller shaft mounting bolts (A).
Tightening torque :
49.0 - 63.7 N.m (5.0 - 6.5 kgf.m, 36.1 - 47.0 lb-ft)

  
When retightening the propeller shaft mounting bolts after removing them, each bolt and washer must be placed in its original position and bolt insertion direction must be the same as before, so make marks not to allow the bolts and washers to be mixed up before removing the propeller shaft.
If the position and direction of the propeller shaft mounting bolts and washers are reversed, it may cause vibration and noise at high vehicle speeds due to imbalance in the propeller shaft.
If abnormal vibration and noise occur at high vehicle speeds after replacing propeller shaft with a new one, balance the propeller shaft with a balancing machine
2.
Remove the center bearing bracket (A) mounting boltss.
Tightening torque :
49.0 - 63.7 N.m (5.0 - 6.5 kgf.m, 36.1 - 47.0 lb-ft)

3.
Make the alignment marks on the rubber coupling of the propeller and companion, and the corresponding marks on the differential carrier, and then remove the propeller shaft tightening bolt.
Tightening torque :
49.0 - 63.7 N.m (5.0 - 6.5 kgf.m, 36.1 - 47.0 lb-ft)

Propeller Shaft Runout
1.
Install a dial indicator with its needle on the center of front propeller shaft or rear propeller shaft.
2.
Turn the propeller shaft slowly and check the runout. Repeat this procedure for the other propeller shaft.
Propeller Shaft Runout : 0.3 mm (0.012 in.)

CV Joint and Boot
1.
Place the transmission in neutral or N.
2.
Raise the vehicle, and make sure it is securely supported.
3.
Check the CV joint boot (A). If the CV joint boot is damaged, replace the propeller shaft assembly.

4.
Check the excessive movement of CV joint.
If has that, should be replaced the propeller shaft.
Installation
