FF7 Rebirth: Location of Dried Driftwood [All Parts]

Here are the locations of all Dried Driftwood pieces required to build Gabe's Ranch.

After interacting with Gabe and getting a rundown of his situation, you’ll be tasked with repairing his carriage with the help of a mountain dweller, Wainwright. After taming Belle and meeting with Wainwright, you’ll be tasked with finding the Dried Driftwood pieces, which are scattered around Gabe’s ranch in FF7 Rebirth and finding their exact locations is what I’ll be helping you with.

Key Takeaways
  • Locating Dried Driftwood Pieces is necessary for building Gabe’s carriage in FF7 Rebirth. 
  • The carriage aids in traveling between regions.
  • The pieces can be found in the nearby hill, abandoned house, and power station.
Important: You’ll have to ride on Belle at all times to retrieve the pieces of Dried Driftwood.

First Piece

After retrieving the parts, fast-travel to Wainwright and ask him to make the required parts. Once done, return to Gabe and give him the required materials to make the carriage wheel.

Important: Completing this quest unlocks the Chocobo Carriage, which is useful for traveling between different regions, such as Under Junon, Costa Del Sol, and Grasslands.

This concludes my guide on the location of Dried Driftwood Pieces in FF7 Rebirth. Personally, finding the third piece was the hardest as the location marked on paper was way too obscure, and there was very little indication of where the third part would be. Before you exit, I recommend reading my review of FF7 Rebirth.
