    I'd have happily done that for you mate - but am Heathrow based so I guess a little too far away.

    I would suggest a complete driveshaft replacement. If the outer joint has failed - its likely the inner will be on its way also with excess play. You can get a complete assembled driveshaft from these guys http://www.jandrcvjoints.co.uk/ for less than £80.

    Tried and tested by many members on here and very popular.

    You should be fine replacing just the offending joint - my thinking was out of pure proactive maintanance

    Hope someone local to you can help.
