Title: Replacement Intermediate Driveshaft on ebay
Post by: SilverBeast on March 20, 2013, 08:26:07 PM
Has anyone bought one of these? or used the seller.

They don't look as "ruggedised" as the "Polish" replacements, more like the copies of the originals to me. Does anyone know what they mean by

"YOU MAY NEED A MODIFICATION KIT TO FIT THIS SHAFT WHICH IS AVAILABLE FORM FORD DEALERS/VW DEALERS "

Thanks

I 'm always EXTREAMLY warey of any advert where the photo is taken from afar, if its a good product... show it!

The modification kit would probably be to convert the earlier aluminium carrier to the steel version. Again though, rather then just say that why not give part numbers, costs and descriptions to be a helpfull seller!

Another source is Driveshaft Uk, has anyone had experience of using these parts?
