    Could someone help me out a bit here please.. I have an 8v '94 cally which
    needs a new N/S (short) driveshaft, and I have been offered a secondhand one
    at a good price but its off of a '92 16v model.. basically, what I'd like to
    know is will it fit, (ie, straight swap) or are the 16v ones incompatible
    with an 8v??
    TIA to anyone who can help.

    Sorry I can't answer your question directly, BUT are you sure that you need
    Many a time you can take the old one out, clean it and re-grease it (use the
    right stuff!) and then put a new boot on and away you go. Maybe worth a
    shot if money is tight?

    Thanks for the tip but I think its totally shagged, no drive at all & you
    can move it around by hand.
    cheers anyway.
    Would still like to know if the 16v one will fit though, anyone?

    HI Paul
    Following on from Mike suggestion I checked out the Autovaux website and for
    the 2.0 litre engine Calibra it would seem that there are 3 drive shafts
    available - the table at:
    shows that they invite your requests for info & prices via the 4th
    "Driveshafts" item (AVSS999). The listed prices for that model - £39.95 to
    £33.17 - (IMHO) doesn't seem too bad?
    Ask away and see what they say for yours - beware of the freighting charges.
    I have no connection with the site & never used them - interested on how you
    find their service - I keep the URL - "just in case".
