    1.4TDI left Driveshaft

    Is anyone selling a left Driveshaft for a 1.4TDI, apparently I need a JZW-407451/AX but they seem too be very hard too come by, are there any other alternatives that'll fit or am I going too have to get a new one(if I can find one) or get mine reconditioned? Thank you.

    Either reconditioning driveshafts are completely not worth it or VW are actually pretty cheap compared if it is the part I need ?

    I don't have a picture, they've had too get it from Germany as the part I need isnt in any of the UK Volkswagen dealers apparently! I'm with a local garage and I chose too go through VW on my own accord but they could be screwing me for all I know aha! Aslong as it comes and works on my car I don't mind, still £100 cheaper than getting my old one reconditioned which I was planning too do until I was told it's too far gone too be reconditioned.

    Basically I screwed myself but seeing as the shaft has completely gone I just thought I may aswell get a brand new one, hence the price

    They done 2 hours work on my car today and didn't charge me a single penny as the shaft I did buy was the wrong type(I was hoping for the best with that haha) so they put the old one back on for now and told me too try and find the one I need for cheap, I was the one who chose too go through Volkswagen as it was the easiest option available.

    That whole shaft was unsalvagable, basically there was no hope for renewing the shaft at all sadly, so had too buy a whole new one!

    For anyone who wants too know the current status, contacted Volkswagen today. They're shipping out the Left Driveshaft(JZW-407-451/ax) from Germany! £190 inc VAT which isn't too bad, costs £290 for an old one too be refurbished. Just thought I'd let everyone know just in case someone needs one in the future as that's the only option.

    It's going in the garage on Tuesday so then I'll know for sure, so then I can make my game plan too get it back on the road!

    Gearbox is still working fine, goes into gear no problem at all! When it went I lifted my bonnet and had white smoke bellowing out from the driveshaft gaitor, my own fault as I knew it was leaking grease about a week before it snapped.

    I've lost all drive so I'm guessing it's snapped, what are my options?
