    '06 RXP - Something loose on driveshaft

    Greetings Greenhulk Nation

    Something loose on driveshaft in front of the impeller boot. Also have some fishing line lodged in the impeller boot. Just sprayed shaft w/ anti-corrosion and you can see it dripping.

    Looked at the parts explosion in the shop manual and I cannot find what is loose here. It looks to me as if the impeller boot is the end of the line until going through the hull.

    What is loose here and what are the implications?

    Looks to me like it might be the top ring on the impeller boot. The factory rubber boot has the treaded portion and a ring that sits on the top of it.

    Thanks for info ... hoping it can be run this way for next 20 hrs or so because I'm away from my garage for next couple months.

    It can be run like that BUT you may start to experiance cavataion upon throttling as now that ring is dancing up and down the shaft and your impeller boot may start to walk also..

    The ring is plastic, cut it off.
