Drive shaft availability ????????

Post by Old Mac Rocco » Wed May 13, 2015 10:42 pm

Starting to get a clicking noise, more noticeable on left hand turns, so I was wondering if one of my drive shafts was on it's way out.
I could be looking for a set so if anyone knows of a set that will fit a wee 1987 1.6 bog standard carb model I could be interested.
I could also be interested in any links to trace a set as up to now I haven't had much success.
I had hoped it was the bearing but I am leaning more towards the shaft.
Any advice appreciated.

Probably the outer cv joint, you can pick them up easy enough from eBay, euro or gsf. No point changing the whole shaft unless you have to.

Going for that option and ordered one from Euro.
Just hope both sides are similar as he didn't offer two options (n/s or o/s)
I'll find out on Wednesday.
