There is a driveline component with a rubber shock absorption ring in it. It sits between the tranny and driveshaft.

I cannot remember the name of this component.

Does someone know the name of this device?

  • It would be helpful if you provided a picture of what you're looking for and what do you mean this is the 4th time writing this? Commented Mar 29, 2016 at 21:40
  • It's up underneath shielding and this car is set very low to the ground. It would be an hour work minimum to get the shot. Sorry man. Commented Mar 29, 2016 at 21:42
  • Is it two pieces of rubber connected by bolts? It may be designed to shear if too much torque is applied to the drive shaft or something locks up. I forget what it's called. like bmw2002faq.com/applications/core/interface/imageproxy/… ?

  • It's for energy absorption in the driveline. All vehicles have some sort of mechanism to do this. BMW just happens to do it here. Commented Mar 29, 2016 at 21:49

I think most BMW owners call them a "Giubo". I have no idea where that comes from or why, but you'll find it very easily by Googling it by that name.

    I'm sure it's short for some fancy Germanic word with 20 syllables. Ty. Commented Mar 30, 2016 at 0:20
  • And now that you said that it tickles my brain and reminds me that's what the crazy name was that I couldn't remember. ;-) Commented Mar 30, 2016 at 0:21

Are you referring to the Driveshaft FlexDisc?
