Inner driveshaft gaiters BX 19 Diesel automatic

Post by Dyane425 » Wed Mar 01, 2017 2:24 pm

Please could someone confirm whether the inner driveshaft gaiters for automatic BX Diesel are the same as for the equivalent manual gearbox version?

Will be the same as a manual as the driveshafts are the same on auto's and manuals, the only difference being the turbo diesels and gti's have the fatter heavier duty shafts, if yours is a 1.9 non turbo it will have the standard shafts. A google search should find you the correct fitment gaitors so far as I know they are still available.

Kind Regards,

Be careful with pattern bits as some are rubbish, no offence to GSF.

New driveshafts are so cheap now it's almost just worth buying one rather than going to the bother of changing the boots... GSF don't need an exchange now for BX shafts and if you get a 50% weekend you'll only pay around £45 for one..
