Come along with Eric O at SMA as we have a look at this 2004 Honda Civic that was dropped off at the shop and the customer told us "I think it needs a clutch." A quick inspection shows that the right front axle shaft was SNAPPED IN HALF! Was this do to rust or the fact he was just learning how to drive standard!? -Enjoy!

    holy smokes! why did it snapped like that? (we don't smoke… in youtube… hehehe)

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 21PSD says:

    They smell like weed because they come with two joints in every box!

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars W Greathouse says:

    They all come from where the good stuff is grown… MEXICO

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Zach_Waltonn says:

    All the cv axles I've gotta at my shop smell the same way and even some belts to

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars mechanic Gonya says:

    Hi guys the axle smells like that because the axles are made in china. Their rubber is different and smells bad.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars R Bwoodwork says:

    You can tell from the dark line around the one edge that this was a fatigue fracture that eventually snapped. That axle has been cracked for awhile. (CV axles made in Met e co!)

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Trevor Trelfa says:

    My wife snapped one on launch recently on her Acura, so it must be a Honda thing. I have never seen it before either.

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Urijah Ben Yahya says:

    Sure you don’t smoke marijuana.
    😂🤣😂
    🇯🇲🇯🇲🇯🇲

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Edward Demedeiros says:

    Perhaps the boxes are made of the stuff!

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Corey Corbeil says:

    This is common on Accords too. I’ve had two and both R & L driveshafts snapped by 300k. Ironically, never had happen on Acura TL of same vintage.

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeffery Bye says:

    Car quest axles are made from hemp

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeffery Bye says:

    Wifey likes the smell…lol..👍🤙🤘

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeffery Bye says:

    Puff puff pass

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeffery Bye says:

    Happy wife happy life

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Emily Cummings says:

    if this part is broken can it make a lound grinding noise

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Andrew Voigt says:

    I have experienced that smell on a number of different parts all of them had a significant amount of rubber. I think it's got something to do with the way some rubber is manufactured in China.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Yellow Jacket says:

    the odor your smelling is a rust inhibitor coating added to the steel to stop corrosion while in storage before use

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jim Ruthem says:

    When I first started watching I thought you were saying Self made auto garage. Not south main. Self made would still be appropriate. Keep up the fine work!

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jim Ruthem says:

    I know you just didn't inhale LOL

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Charles Lease says:

    It’s all that horsepower Honda’s got

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars texasslinglead somtingwong says:

    Oh my , this video is gold . Kona gold .
    Now I know why my wife and I thoroughly enjoy watching you two . Fellow mom and pop shop owners.
    Tell 'Ole girl' , be glad your in SMA instead of Davalos Plumbing. Our stuff never smells good. My wife is just like the Mrs O , always finding ways to go to the job instead of the office. She likes the work enough that we had to get her registered as a plumbers apprentice , so much so our local inspectors stop at our jobs to chat with her . Times have actually changed for the better from our case study's perspective.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joseph Loureiro says:

    Same thing happened to my friends Honda Fit both axles and now my Honda Accord. I'm over 55 and drive completely like an old fart. The axles snapped shaft in the exact same spot.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tow Haul says:

    The box is made from industrial hemp.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tom says:

    Your videos suck…but I sure have learned a lot watching them; 🙂

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ty 🖕🏼 says:

    My boot got ripped and the dirt inside wore down the spline inside the joint and it just spun even in park, but I swapped it out 2 days ago, now I’m having fears my 4L60 isn’t acting right. Fucking hate buying vehicles off liars

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Antonio Claudio Michael says:

    I have got a ton of parts for napa and the boxes have that odor also not just cv axles Eric O 😳 😅 @SouthMainAutoRepairLLC

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Antonio Claudio Michael says:

    I have the OTC 6295 front end service set I use it more then 4 times a week it's a great set 👌 👍 Eric O @SouthMainAutoRepairLLC

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Antonio Claudio Michael says:

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Antonio Claudio Michael says:

    Looks like the Old civic Has plenty of lead in its pencil to break that Cv Axle Wow Never seen that on a civic either that is Very impressive Eric O 👏 @SouthMainAutoRepairLLC

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Cody Sallander says:

    I thought the same thing when I opened my first one it smelled like my truck

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mellow Guy says:

    I understand this is an old video, but I'd never seen that happen either until a few months ago. '06 Accord snapped its half-shaft right at the damper. I kinda live in snow 'n' salt country as well, but not as severe as your location. Took it 15 years to rot in two. Driver happened to hit the throttle just as she bounced over some railroad tracks, so that somehow provided the right shock and torque to finish it off.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Duke says:

    Had to be a WOT clutch dump right?

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Peter and snowy says:

    The weed smell is actually a thing if you look it up on Reddit a lot of people are asking the question

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Johnny Sechrist says:

    Never saw an axle rusted in to.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Roger Thomas says:

    That axle is going to drive real smooth if it came out of that 📦 .now the car will go real smother.I think that axle is to close to that joint that’s why that happen I mean ball joint.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Andrew Turchan says:

    There is a recall for it . Honda will pay for it ….

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Peterrrpn says:

    Hi, is it possible to replace only the dynamic damper on the half-axle? I have original half-axle Honda but on the Dynamic damper is cracked rubber

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bill Smith says:

    What I want to know is how come you and the misses recognize that odor🤨

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Dvorak says:

    Great video! And I really loved it that Mrs. O. totally gave you the what-for! LOL!

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jody Watkins says:

    That exact same thing happened to ours. HAHA!!!! Ours is a manual, though.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alan Robison says:

    It could be that the paper used to make the boxes is made from hemp which is in the cannabis family.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark Mont says:

    they always brake there on the honda fit

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars luetner says:

    Paper made from hemp.

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sunshine Sunshine says:

    This was so informative for a girl who knows nothing about axels. My Honda Accord just snapped today with the same sound. You really taught me a lot in minutes. Thank you for this great video. Your fam is awesome. Who knows, the packaging could be made out of hemp or someone is transporting MaryJane with the parts. Lol. At least your wife knows the difference between good stuff and garbage. She's a hound. LoL. Enjoyed y'all very much!! 😘

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Denver1976Man says:

    My element left side twisted off.same place. I had never seen that either…

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Marlene Riegel says:

    I had my axel break on my 96 Civic HX Coupe, I was coming to a stop and it broke, it wasn’t rusted or nothing😳

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Websiteguy 2 says:

    I love your family

  48. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tyler Stutzman says:
