    Smile New drive shaft

    Hi all, I'm bamboozled and hope someone can shed some light on this problem.

    I have a 2004 Transporter T28 1.9 TDI.

    So, pulled over to let a car pass, then discovered i'd lost all drive. just a crunching noise when trying to accelerate.

    On inspection I found the the gearbox stub axle and driveshaft were worn where they meet.

    I replaced both parts with new, they looked slightly different (I guess it has been upgraded since) but were of the same size and fitted nicely.

    However, since then the van wants to pull to the left, which it didn't do previously.

    Any ideas why? Do you think that the slight difference in the drive shaft would do that?

    I'm wondering if I change the other side it would alleviate the problem.

    Many thanks for your time gents.

    Failure of the spline drive is very common, where did you buy the parts and which part numbers.

    Can you still read the part number off the sticker on the old drive shaft? Eurodriveline don't give any cross reference info, I get the OE make GKN/Lobro repair shaft as 304837 and then you need the stub axle such as the SKF VKJC 4315.
