Should be something like this bah?
Repair? I think our automotive industry aren't the type that will do repairs or have the expertise (repair will be too much effort and too little to profit). Replacement will make more sense, less down time. Repair wise I think industrial fabrication and repair workshop will be able to do it. Cos the weak point is always the universal joint. Not easy cos there are many brands of industrial universal joints out there. Unless you are able to find out what brand and model. So trying to just find the correct and matching replacement part can be a challenge.
For automotive it will be straight forward which come as a whole assembly including the shaft and what's not. Sometimes it already comes assembled. Easy job for the mechanics. That's why it can be unusually expensive. To replace just the joint of course cost less but more cost will go on labour and down time and depends on how lucky for you to find the part provided it's ex-stock and no need to wait for shipping.
If you ask me I will choose replacement. Too much hassle to repair and too much uncertainty unless you have the lobang to do so.
To me there will be at least two parties involved. The automotive workshop to remove the drive shaft assembly. The industrial workshop or the industrial parts supplier workshop to replace the joint. And dan back to automotive workshop to put the assembly back on your car.
