HELP! Broken axle on 2006 x1 trailer

I broke the axle on the trailer for my 2006 x1 today. Where do I get a new axle or a decent used trailer?

If your trailer is like most of the newer mastercraft trailers, it will have ufp torsion axles. What part did you break? Post up a picture.

Replacement parts can be found here: http://www.pacifictrailers.com/UFP-T...ion-bars-arms/

You're going to have to take the wheel/caliper/rotor off to see if the spindle is damaged. I would not tow it like that, you risk the whole wheel coming off.

Here's a video of someone installing the brakes, but removal is the opposite.

Here is the entire spindle assembly:

I think that is the correct one for your boat, but if you call pacific trailers they can confirm.

I had to call a tow truck and have them take it to the trailer sales and repair place where i live. They deal mainly in cargo trailers and equipment trailers. They said that i need a whole new axle and that its gonna take 3 weeks. They might be wrong. I dunno. But theres only really nice weather for the month of august in montana so i really need to figure something out ASAP.

Pacific trailer has been able to get me parts on the east coast in less than a week with ground shipping.


Do your trailer brakes look like this?

2006 - you likely have a Reliable brand axle. I don't believe they still sell that axle. They may be able/willing to fabricate one.

Looking at your pictures, is it an axle problem or hub and bearing issue?

at a minimum you'll need a new spindle, IIRC 06 MC trailer spindle should be bolt on
