JUST BOUGHT A A4 2.4SE NEED ADVISE
I have not been on here for ages (sold my old a4 and missed it)
I have just won a 98 a4 2.4 se on ebay and it needs a driveshaft or outer cv joint for the
drivers side as it's a non runner due to this and I need to collect it !
I was going to do a 'road side' repair on this as am I right in thinking the shaft can be removed
even with the wheel on ?
Also the guy im buying it off said the mechanic who fitted the passenger joint previously, told him a standard joint wont fit and it had to have a 'quattro' joint fitted so it cost a lot more ?
I dont want to drive 100 miles with my tools to find that it's the wrong part !
Am i correct in thinking that a4's often snap the drive shaft itself ?
Any help with part numbers or info would be greatly appreciated
