Gti Drive Shaft Dimensions

Recommended Posts

I got a pair of Gti drive shafts that I have been stripping down to get powder coated.

I got the hubs as well, turned out that non gti ball joint had been fitted on the nearside side and the (shot) drive shaft had been hammering into the Gbox cup.

The short drive shaft outer CV would not come off, ended up doing this:

Revenge is sweet, however trying to find out why it was refusing to come off the only thing I could see was a difference in drive grooves:

LH one is 5mm shorter than the long shaft on the right 

Lengths of bare shafts are: Short 440mm & Long 655mm

Got a horrible feeling the short is not Gti one.

Well I dug up the bare drive shaft list on CGTI

it says 

Lupo GTI

  • Short shaft: 430.5mm
  • Long shaft: 656mm

My long one is bob on short is about 10mm longer at 440???

drive shaft lengths didnt change from 5 to 6 speed - the 6 was an"extended" 5 speed was it not?

forge the old bits into something useful.

six and five boxes are the same bar a bit extra on the side, shaft positions didn't change.

sneaky polo driveshaft in there?

Thanks Rich - Think it may be - do they have part number stamped on them?

 

Edit - just can a angle grinder wire brush over it - no number

numbers are on a sticker usually.

if you're absolutely stuck for one I have one in the shaft pile.

Thanks for the offer - I am not stuck, these are spare drive shafts I was stripping for powder coating
