VW driveshaft. This driveshaft is made for 2.0L Jettas, Golfs, Passats, and Cabrios with airbags, and features a tripodic inner CV joint. Our remanufactured driveshafts have been totally disassembled, cleaned, inspected and remanufactured by a specialty drive shaft re-builder. Parts are replaced to make them meet like new standards, reassembled, greased, sealed, painted and packaged. Good as new but more affordable! $50.00 core charge.
The easiest way for a DIYer to correct a CV joint problem is to replace the entire VW driveshaft as an assembly. By buying an 8 point Allen star and the 30mm socket a novice mechanic can replace the entire assembly in 1/2 an hour. (Remove the drive shaft by removing the 30mm nut out by the wheel, then the 8 bolts on the inner CV, drop the inner end of the CV down and pull it out toward the transmission. Now you can remove the wheel bearing assembly and replace it).
