Number of Teeth, ABS ring?

Post by senmathal » Fri Jun 23, 2017 10:44 pm

Anyone who knows if there are two type of Drive shaft with different number of teeth on the ABS ring. 29 or 90? After I have ordered a drive shaft from Mister Auto I discovered there are wrong number of teeth. I have tried to stop the order and change it. The car is a 16 Valve.

BXs are always 90 which seems to confuse everybody except those in the know.

Thank you for answer!

I thought I knew but get confused when Mister Auto tells that the drive shaft has 29 theet.

Mister-Auto and the 87954 similar webshops dont' know shit, they rely on the information they get from their supplier (which seems to be the same body supplying the webshop software itself). You have to know what you order from these, you may get it cheap if you pick the right part at first time ;)

Yes your right! But until now i have get the right part every time. Sometimes the description has been wrong but the part has been the right. Even "Online Carparts" have two different drive shafts with different number of teeth. So the question is whether it is the spare part or the description that is wrong this time.

No-one and I repeat no-one supplies the correct 90 tooth ones for the BX. Except one.

I had them commissioned a year or so ago in conjunction with J&R CV Joints & Driveshafts.

I don't have their Birmingham details to hand but you'll find their eBay shop has them in stock.

This is all rather weird, as I've been buying CV joints for ABS-equipped BXs from my local motor factors for the last 5 years, with no issues..... :shock:

Both Mister Auto and Onlinecarparts for example have the right CV joint with 90 teeth. I took for granted that there was only one type and that the reason way I ordered the wrong one. Should have looked after better. I hope I can stop and change the order before they send it. They have incorrect information in the webshop and I hope they take responsibility for it. Maybe the part is the right with 90 teeth but the information is wrong.

This one is very cheep I must say. Anyone who know about the quality. My order from Mister Auto is now deleted and they will set may money back to me. Maybe I order this one instead. But I can´t read anything about how many teeth there is on it? Can I trust therer is 90?

Are you getting the no. of ABS teeth confused with the no. of drive splines?

I don't think he is, as the Mister Auto website listed on a search for the 16v and requoted shows:

External Teeth, wheel side 25

External Teeth, diff.side 24

Number of Teeth, ABS ring 29

So this discrepancy is definitely related to the ABS ring and cannot be mixed up with the spline numbers.

Either it's a case in IT of Garbage in = Garbage out ; or the product is just plain wrong for the BX with ABS?

Exactly so Way2go!

There are other Web shops that has specified 29 Teeth. Maybe they have the same source for the information.

Today two driveshafts arrived, one from J&R and one from Mister Auto. Sadly both with 29 teeth in the ABS-ring. I have a new 90 teeth ABS-ring but could I bee shore that it fits so I can change it?
