Intermediate Shaft Bracket Question


The bracket on the middle shaft is what I am talking about.
1) I have developed a terrible vibration/shimmy at speed and judging by the grease flung everywhere, BOTH the axle and the bearing in that bracket have failed.
2) What is the p/n for that bracket and does the bearing within it press out? Do these fail frequently and is the grease a reliable indicator of failure? The axles don't seem to have any play when the car is on a lift if that means anything...
Thanks,
-Cm

I replaced the bearing on my NG's intermediate shaft. It was held in with a circlip and required a little force on a press if I remember correctly. I replaced it as part of an entire front end over haul, so I'm not sure if it was bad or not.

Edit:

This appear to be them:

I've tapped the bearing in the intermediate shaft out after removing the circlip. It should come out even without a press. Just a hammer and tap all around so it moves evenly.

It is a sealed bearing so there won't be enough grease in it to fling. You can tell if it is bad by rotating it. It should be smooth. They are cheap and so since it was out I would replace it as preventative anyhow. If the bearing is loose in the bracket or on the shaft you need to replace the bearing and the bracket or the intermediate shaft (whichever it is loose on).
