taking the front drive shaft out

Asked by Feb 06, 2014 at 02:39 PM about the 2006 Hummer H3

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2006 Hummer H3. I let a buddy borrow it and he took the front drive shaft out and drove it to the end of his driveway and back and put it in park. Now when you put it in drive it will not move. What is the cause of this?? please help.

I guess that's the last time you let your buddy borrow your truck.

Put your drive shaft back in and it will be fine.


H3 will not move without front drive shaft installed.

I have some front differential noise. I removed the front drive shaft and front axles thinking I could use it as a two wheel drive and repair the differential at my leisure. Now it won't move even four high lock.
