When your driveshaft goes out or fails you will hear a loud grinding or clunking noise as the driveshaft breaks. It can lead to the wheels no longer turning properly and a loss of control of the car. It will very likely also lead to further damage to the suspension and drivetrain.
It's important to get your driveshafts checked periodically and address any issues.
What causes Seat a driveshaft to break?

Lack of lubrication can sometimes also cause damage to the driveshaft and its related components.
