More info please.

What do you mean by "falling down". Are you talking about the individual axles, the entire case or an internal problem?

What year, auto or manual?

The trans axle is an integrated unit.

Can you provide more information please?

Excuse me,
Here is more information, and once more sorry for my humble English.
The problem started then in july, left axle separated from flange, bolts were borken off and missing. Garage did the following jobs:
1-left axle flange threads damaged-remove left axle, drill broken bolts and repair/clean threads. Remove all bolts from right axle, apply thread locker adn reistall and tighten.
2-left rear wheel bearing is worn-remove left knuckle and wheel bearing. find hub worn also, repalce wheel bearing and hub, reinstalle knuckle.
1997 manual odometer 55k

Ans this problem happened again. Mechanics theory, the axle have some inclanation so that its not tight there.

Thank you
Alexander
