Post by GTXGTXGTX »

I want to replace the drive shafts on my GTX. Can anyone recommend a good quality manufacturer?
Thanks.

Still looking for these. Need to get the part number from the existing shafts. Can't see it. Does anyone know where the number is located? Thanks.

May I suggest refurbishment rather than replace? Save you a few £££...

Bob and his team are second to none. Trust me, been there and done that. 4 - 5 day return a reality.

I'd that doesn't stir your interest and you have a manual gearbox, try Classic VW;
