4x4 driveshafts

Post by JDavey » Sun Aug 05, 2018 10:37 pm

Evening,

I pulled the nearside driveshaft on my GTi 4x4 today with a view to changing it - I had bought a pair of new GTi shafts.

The shafts appear to be reversed, i.e. long shaft on the nearside, short shaft on offside, out of the side of the transfer box(?). The new long shaft I had bought was 1.5cms shorter than the old one so I put the old one back in.

Does anyone know where I can get the correct shaft, or if I can use the slightly shorter shaft?

Cheers

John

there's a guy on ebay selling some rear ones, you could message him to see if he's got the front ones.
