The main problem with the later axles is you are limited to the small diameter 32 spline where the shaft enters the CV joint, a very common failure point.
Up until now if you have a later 300 TDi or TD5 front axle you were able to change to the earlier 2522 type (and thus the larger 23 spline shaft) by one of 2 ways, either fit the early stubs and hubs or by using thin phosphor bronze bushes and offset drive flanges, neither option is ideal. The overall measurement is 210 mm.
This design of CV means you no longer have to do this, we have made it geometrically identical to the 32 spline CV currently fitted but made to accept our larger 23 spline front shafts.
This means you can remove the existing CV and halfshaft assembly and fit our heavy duty CV joint and halfshaft as a direct replacement.
Now supplied with a FIVE YEAR replacement warranty against failure.
Please note the oil seal fitted to the swivel ball has a different inner diameter between the 23 and 32 spline shaft and will also need changing to stop oil migration, these are supplied with the CV's.
Please note any spline/drive member which is allowed to run in a 'dry, non-lubricated' condition will be subject to 'fretting corrosion' leading to failure. On early oil filled swivels oil migrated along the CV stub shaft and lubricated the drive member spline, on later grease filled hubs this migration does not occur so regular attention, lubrication of the drive member spline is necessary. If you use our heavy duty drive members it is simple to remove the cover nut, fill with EP80/90, and replace the nut, this will keep the spline lubricated.
