    Default 205 Mi16 Drive Shaft

    I recently acquired a 205 Gti with Mi16 motor fitted to it. one of the items to be replaced is the LH drive shaft.

    I went for my first drive in it last night. Was exciting, no power steering just a big go kart.

    I was wondering since I am going to have to replace drive shaft, is there a heavier duty shaft, maybe 306 that I can use?

    Not really. Just replace what you have. What series 205 is it?

    Series 3 drive shafts will be stronger but you will need to replace the hubs to suit. Just have your existing driveshaft rebuilt and see how it goes before you go to the trouble of a later model setup.

    I have my driveshafts rebuilt for $120 in Syndey.

    Parry could you please post the name and address of the company you use to recon the driveshafts?

    My Silver Si is clunking away on LHS driveshaft.
    Seems to be the LHS that gives up first.

    central driveshaft services Queens rd Fivedock

    It was 120 per side, the cost does vary depending on what needs to be changed. My long 2 piece drive shaft fell apart in a million pieces and it cost me $200 to rebuild.

    I intended to upgrade brake system and found I could fit 306 or 405 discs and calipers on the smaller s1 205 hub. May have to go for hybrid. Made of 405 joints on 205 shafts. . I will have to sus out first.

    id never use a reco'd driveshaft they cause nothing but trouble. only the needle rollers and grease are replaced (essentially) the cage is still worn, and that will cause problems to arise sooner. dont see it alot on pugs though..other brand i fix not naming names are horrendous!
    The wrong oil is better than no oil at all.
