    Just had drive shaft number 4 go on me. Dose any one know of a stronger shaft that I can use! I have tryed useing one from an auto that lasted for a day any help would be good. It is the inner cv that keep braking on the n/side. Yes it is front wheel drive running 195bhp which is not a lot. ( my car is a3 1.8 t sport on a 2000 )

    looks like there's a fault with you EDL

    having 4 go in such a short time is stupid, can you confirm your car model has EDL ?

    Electronic diff lock, you don't have it as you are 2wd.

    If it's the same shaft you are ruining i'd look for another fault.
