Thanks for that. I actually thought the rubber gater was called the cv joint and didn't know the cv joint was the threads I messed up. Was sat here crying my eyes out cos I was going to have to spend £60+ on buying the whole drive shaft arm. Man I feel so relieved. Gonna order the cv joint now.I was close
Is this what you're after? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/AUDI-A2-1-4-1-4TDi-1-6FSi-DRIVESHAFT-CV-JOINT-NEW-2000-ONWARDS/142408029533Yeh, I'm gonna take it to a mechanic and get them to smack it out. I'm past trying to do it. Could you please post a link for a cv joint kit. I've tried looking on Ebay but can't find one by j&r
This is great advice, i remember struggling one time for ages to refit a Yaris gearbox flat on my back, arms aching and cursing no end.Old cars can test ,sometimes a cup of tea , and a step back work wonders
Not really. Firstly with that amount of rust there is no way that shaft is coming out of that bearing and certainly not under normal driving conditionsI reckon someone tried to do the bearing and then gave up and put it all back together. Isn't that really dangerous though?
Tell me about it, what seemed to be a fairly straightforward task has become a nightmare. And I've not even finished one side yet, i'm dreading to see whats gonna happen on the other side.Yes and i guess it means replacing the CV joint now, the job list just keeps growing
