    Default R17 Drive shaft part number

    Hi all. I don't have the parts book for R17 models.
    Could someone look up the correct part number for R17 1312 ?

    Advertisement


    Is a R12 the same? Ren shop 12. Drive shaft for Renault 12.
    Part number: 7700535244.
    Or can they be refurbished local?

    Thanks in advance
    John

    The part No you have listed is in the R17TL R1312 parts book. It is of a slightly different design to the earlier driveshaft. R12 driveshafts will fit straight into your R17, the difference being the inner CV on the R12 and the part No. supplied has only 3 balls, when the original early R17 one has 4. the earlier R17 shaft has the part No. 7700535435 or 7700535243 or 7700577109.

    I used R12 driveshafts in my modded R15 for many years, although I have seen the hollow type shafts getting screwed up by dropping the clutch at high revs with sticky tyres. I only ever used the thinner solid shafts.

    My 17 TS is currently running R12 drive shafts. The R12 G replica is also running R12 shafts.

    So Alan, they are selling the most up to date shafts and can be used in 12/15/17 ???
    Regardless of types??

    They must have made them better every new version?

    I could get these and have no problems. Good price too and from a reputable supplier, I think.

    FYI: I have a 15 parts book and there are about three part no. in there for each model types R1300-R1301-R1302-R1304-R1308
    Thanks Alan

    The latest shafts may have been cheaper to produce. I don't know if they are actually better, but yes, they will fit all R12/15/17 without a problem.

    I'll assume that the supplier with their two shop websites R12 & R16 with heaps of product, sell good quality reproductions. Fingers crossed

    Failing that, I have a stack of R12 shafts you can pick through and have for free. They are all good working shafts but used.

    Yes and I have a boot installing tool. Sometimes called an Eifel Tower if you need to reboot an otherwise good shaft.

    Thanks for the offers guy's. But i have bought a pair of the new ones from the Netherlands. With new seals and roll pins.
    List of parts now obtained for the front suspension, brakes and steering continues to grow.
    And with the new spring compressor I have made, all will be easy.

    Cheers

    g'day guys, the LOL I have been helping out with her R12 1.4 is still looking for a couple of driveshafts - now I see that ones from 15s and 17s will fit, so I guess that makes it a little easier? hope so!!
    John, I know the post is 2 years old but can you tell me what the cost was in 2016 for two new ones?
    btw the R12 also has a leaking brake master cylinder so I would appreciate any advice on which way to go with that
    thanks

    As far as the master cylinder goes you can get a seal and piston kit. There are two types of tandem master cylinder, not exactly sure what is different in the internals. Not sure when they changed over but the Virage has the later type.

    If the bore of the cylinder is not to pitted a light hone will bring it back to new.

    Your other option is to just buy a complete new master cylinder.

    It all depends on how much you want to spend and how much work you want to do yourself.

    As Col says, there are two types. The early type, where the fluid reservoir is mounted vertically on the cylinder (so the fluid enters at the top), and the later type, where the fluid reservoir attaches at an angle, with the four brake lines all in a row on the opposite side of where the fluid reservoir attaches. The later type is usually fitted on the 1.4, and apparently is not repairable (I've never played with one of them). However the earlier type is repairable, but is easier to just replace with new.

    Also, if the master cylinder requires work, it would be prudent to also do the caliper seals, and the rear wheel cylinder seals (or whole cylinder) as they usually all go at the same time. Also check the date on the brake lines, the fronts can be prone to cracking and age related wear and tear.

    JohnW. I was very careful. But it was very, very secure. They were done some time back now. But now I'm interested in either Bilstein or Koni's. So yes I will have to do it all again.

    They cost 75 Euro each and the freight was around 75 Euro for both. They are in the car now and going well.

    About the MCyl. Just had one refurbished by Slacks Creek Brake and Clutch. It was already sleeved so it was 100 bucks and would have been 240 if it needed sleeving. Thats the 4 outlet one from a R1179. Sorry for the hijack, please return to thread

    Good to know the later type master cylinder can be rebuilt!
