    Default 03 2.2DTi drivers (O/S) driveshaft

    Can anyone tell me if the drivers (O/S) driveshaft is interchangable between different engine sizes, please?

    Would a 58 1.9CDTi shaft fit mine by any chance?

    I've discovered both CV boots are knackered and the inner joint is rusting. It would be easier to just swap the shaft than repair it.

    can you not just stick new boots on? or has the joints already started knocking?

    as you can get universal cv boots for a few quid

    Nothing is knocking. But, as I mentioned, the inner joint is rusting. I'd sooner replace the shaft.

    Does anyone know if all driveshafts are the same, please?

    Sorry but the driveshafts are completely different.
    Even the 2.0 dti and 2.2dti driveshafts are different.
    I wouldn't worry about a little bit of rust but you'll need to remove the shaft and split it to put on the new boots. When you split the shaft make sure you clean the joint well by washing it with diesel / petrol etc before putting the grease that should be supplied with the boots into the bearings. Hope this helps. I've done this job myself.
    The other easier option would be to get a 2nd hand shaft with good boots on it.

    This is why I want to replace the whole lot.

    I don't fancy swapping boots and regreasing (I've done this many times also) when its possible the inner cv joint may not last much longer. Judging by the mess, its been the way it is for some time. The boot is actually in two parts, not just a little split.

    Is it a definate that no driveshafts are the same across different engine sizes?

    Defo mate.
    I don't know about all drive shafts but I know for the 2.2dti the driveshaft required is specific to that model and no other one will fit.
    Saying that the 2.0dti shaft might fit but it is designed for less torque and is definately a different shaft so it would not be recommended.
    As I say even the 2.0 dti and 2.2dti shafts are different.

    Yeah, I guessed the difference in the 2.0 and 2.2dti's would be down to torque etc. What about 1.9CDTi's or 3.0 and 3.2 V6's. The CDTi's would certainly have as strong as, if not stronger shafts than my 2.2.

    I've looked on ebay for 2.2dti shafts and there aren't any.

    Reason is simple.
    Different engine, different gearbox, different driveshaft - It all makes sense.
    No point looking for anything else - none will fit.
    Try a breakers. I had a damaged shaft and got a replacement at a breakers 20 mile away. He is a specialist breaker that only does Vauxhalland had a good shaft with good boots, lucky me.

    I have more experience with Vectra B's and afaik, all shafts were the same. V6 shafts fitted in the F28 box, splines were the same etc etc.

    I'd expect the splines to be the same on Vectra C shafts, just a shame they aren't as simple as the 'B'.
