VW Sharan, Ford Galaxy, Seat Alhambra

new, impoved right inner driveshaft, with gearbox stub axle and bearing


In vehicles of FORD Galaxy family the splined connection between right driveshaft and the gearbox output stub axle damages often after 2 - 3 years. The improperly made connection sealing is a reason of this situation. The water (often with salt) creates a corrosion of splines and a connection losing in result. The damaged connection looks usually like this:  

What's remedy for this problem?

On place of short, easy-corroded stub axle bush we install much longer one, with new, deep splines. This change needs a new inner axle shaft. The comparison of the connections you can see at the picture:
To be sure the connection has been well sealed and tightened we close it with a rubber cover and steel bands. The assembled set with a new bearing,  mounted in a steel holder, you can see on the picture beside:
The version with a bearing dedicated to the aluminium carrier looks like this:
