Didn't occur to me that this could happen hehe... so sharing.

Long story short, I didn't service my Rex before I went driving around raya time. Notice small vibration between 60-80 kmh. Didn't matter much because Highway couldn't speed at the time and was driving safe during Raya, all speed limit observed ooo.

Back from Raya, went to Sengs place in Kulim here to service la. As usual they jack up the whole car. Then mechanic saw the below...

wahhh... scary ooo... 2 of the 4 screws gone... if that shaft fell off, 3 tonne Rex can bounce I think. So moral is, check your car even if got small vibration ya, and service car before trips.

Full-time (AWD) has thicker shaft connection I believe. I think screw is diff size also. Looked at bro byebye shaft connection had nut.

OK. Not sure if its oil or just areas with and without dirt. I'll check closer next chance I get.
