Final Drive failures.
« on: September 12, 2014, 05:03:27 pm »
I see that there are at least a couple of threads on oil leaks coming from the shaft drive, that's not great to hear and it seems a crazy situation that a whole new shaft needs to be fitted rather than just a new seal??  :005:

Anyone had a bearing type failure within the shaft drive system?......you know, the type of failure that BMW are renowned for. :008:

There have been a couple if threads started but nothing with any major causes for concern as far as I can see. They don't seem to be common faults and what has occurred has been sorted under warranty.

The Dealer also told me that Triumph had a double bearing so it did not get the failures BMWs did?  There again I have to take everything the dealer said with a large pinch

Ask Triumph to fix it?  They are good at fixing stuff outside warranty.

If your Warranty has expired it might depend on how you ask the question, and who you ask !

Start with your Dealer if you have faith in them, and ask the to approach Triumph for a warranty repair.

If that doesn't work write or email directly to Triumph After Sales ( email : after.sales@triumph.co.uk ),
and explain that this is not the kind of failure you expected on such a Prestigious marque,
especially where, due to the design, what appears may be a failure of a relatively cheap seal,
has resulted in the requirement to replace the complete, expensive, assembly.

Mention that you have heard of other Trophy Owners suffering from a similar problem.

You might even ask the question that as your Triumph 2 year warranty has expired,
would you have any recourse with Triumph under the Sale of Goods Act,
where goods are supposed to remain serviceable for a "reasonable" length of time ( up to 6 Years ),
and you do not consider this failure to be reasonable !

Let us know how you get on  :028:
