    Default 205 GTI - BE1 Gearbox - driveshaft spline count?

    My 205 GTI needs both driveshafts replaced. It's an early car with a BE1 gearbox. Does anyone know the inner and outer spline count for the driveshafts? Is it the same as a 205si?

    It's getting harder to find these items but if I can find out that information (without pulling the shafts from the car) I should be able to order some new ones from the UK.

    Look up and check on the SKF catalogue.

    I think they are all the same spline count and will all fit each other.

    You may probably only need new outer CV joints though. You would need to replace both boots though on each drive shaft.

    I thought the outer hubs were different at least on the early 205s? I'll have a look on the SKF site though.

    The hubs have different offsets length/axis wise.

    There are lots of posts here about people fitting bigger brakes that may explain this.
