    But i am finding it hard to find a s/h shaft for it. The inner cv joint is the one going wrong.
    Its a 2004 d4d 280 2500 diesel.

    cant you just change the CV?

    what is wrong with it?
    They can often be rebuilt with good results (CV's that is)

    The driveshaft has two joints. the outer cv...the inner cv ...you cannot buy the inner. you have to buy a complete shaft.
    we have already replaced the outer last year now the inner has started to rumble.So best case for me buy a second hand shaft and put my good outer cv joint on it.
    but thanks for your help woodfordfallow

    who told you that?
    The inner is just press fitted onto the shaft like the outer one
    The shaft is just a splined bar, unless bent it wont need replacing

    The lack of range of movement in the inner means they tend to last longer but unless the boot has gone dumping the grease and running the CV dry I would get someone to check the transfer box output bearing.
    you do not want to fork out for a CV only to find out the rumbling is coming from the box not the CV

    Thanks for your remarks .I have been to the part's dept.They say they don't do an inner. we have already dianosed the fault and I know how i all works.
    but for your infomation the joint is faulty and if you know where i can get one i will buy it. I did run my own garage for 12 years.
