    hi all
    has anyone had the centre bearing\bush fail or get noisey? it would appear the replacement propshaft i got has either has a knackered centre bearing\bush or joint? is it something that can be reconditioned ? looks like a rubber mount around the outside of the prop or does it have a bearing ??
    cheers

    Welly had issues with his... all the parts are available from a dealer... I think he changed a rubber doughnut (new from a dealer) and git a second hand prop to replace the rest IIRC...

    Centre joint is just a CV type joint which is available from a dealer too

    I don't think the parts were that expensive from memory... if looking for a 2nd hand prop, the TT ones are shorter from the CV to the rear... dunno about R32 props... they 'should' be the same length as the S3
