Drive shaft

Post by GolfMonk » Wed Jun 13, 2018 10:08 am

Hey guys my drive shaft on golf velociti is badly bent so my mechanic said I could get one from a polo classic but when I put them side by side the polo one looks slightly shorter although haven't tried it on...could this really work or should I just buy a new one?? :roll:

Why do you want to use a polo drive shaft?

Find one from a velociti and fit.

Drive to your local Goldwagen and buy the correct shaft new.

Agreed, was at GW last week and they mentioned that they sell the complete shaft or Just the CV's or the Booth's separately, which ever you need. cant remember the exact price of the complete shaft but it wasn't too badly priced...
