Located between the transmission and driveshaft, the giubo (also guibo) joint is a flexible rubber drive coupling that joins driveline components to reduce vibration, while allowing a limited range of flexibility. Joint rubber deteriorates over time from torque stress and heat hardening. A failed joint is a common cause of driveline noise and vibration.
This joint should be inspected during normal maintenance for signs of heat cracking and tears in the rubber. Failed joints should be replaced before they cause additional damage and expense or disable the vehicle.
Bavarian Autosport served the needs of BMW and MINI enthusiasts from 1974-2019. In 2019, ECS Tuning acquired the Bavarian Autosport brand, committing to continuing the tradition of excellence Bav Auto is known for. Over the years, Bav developed their own brand of parts, accessories and upgrades. A lot of these parts are engineered and built by OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers – companies who make original parts for BMW, MINI, and other European marques). Just as BMW and MINI do, we work with a variety of manufacturers in Europe, Asia and North America. In many cases, we have sourced parts that are superior to Original Equipment.
A lot of time and resources have been put into developing and evaluating these products, as well as the companies who produce them. We stand behind every product we sell. If any product fails to meet our standards — or our customers' expectations — we won't sell it, and we're certainly not going to put the Bavarian Autosport name on it. In fact, we're so confident in the quality of these parts that we back every Bavarian Autosport brand part with a 2-year warranty.
