Hi all, apologies if this is a repeat, my last post does not appear in the forum when I last checked.
I'm wondering if anybody knows what the correct N/S driveshaft for an A4 Avant (sep 2000) with AJM engine and DUK gearbox. I thought it would be possible to interchange driveshafts from different models, like use part 8D0407451CX - however a quick search on vagcat(dot)com shows 8D0407451NX and 8D0407271EK... how do I know which of those is right? (yes I've googled quite a bit but don't have any answers!)
I did also do a check through eurocarparts, but they don't even say whether the (I presume genuine due to price) shaft is NS/OS - or whether it is actually is the right one for my car... I'm presuming not to touch Q-drive with long stick. I should add that the reason I'm looking at replacing is because the inner bearings have fractured, so I was weighing up pros and cons of replacing inner CV section vs entire shaft... and here too I'm not sure if there are right and wrong inner CV kits!
