      MK4 GLI
      05-03-2012 06:14 AM #1
      So since our GLI's are "split production" year, which year axles fit?

      If I buy a 2004 one from, say O'Reilly Auto, the axle will not fit. And if I buy a 2005 axle, they just bring me a mk5 axle. I have a blown CV boot, I've replaced the boots many times. Just gonna replace the axle this time and Raxles aren't in the budget right now lol.

      Looking to order from a local auto parts store, don't really feel like driving on this too much longer. But as a last resort I'll order online.

      Any help/input is great!

      See, funny thing is, if you do the dreaded thing of "ordering online" you'll get something that fits proper and be supporting a company that actually supports the VAG scene. Not to mention your vw deserves better than advancedpepzone crap

      get these and be done with it:

      2 problems with your response.

      ONE, the link you provided is to a Golf. If I had a standard Golf, I would've posted in the proper forum. BUT since I have a GLI, I thought I'd post in the 3/2/G forum

      TWO. Using your "link" I navigated to the CORRECT car and came up with this.

      http://www.germanautoparts.com/Volks...a/Drivetrain/8

      If you have any info about what I should do since its an Automatic GLI, thank you.

      Since you're new at this game, I'll let that roll off my shoulders.. Kinda.

      First, problems with YOUR response. Golf/jetta doesn't matter if the transmission is the same. Axles for an O2M in a 1.8t golf/gti are the same as axles for an O2M in a 1.8t Jetta.

      Second, you didn't mention in your original post that you had the crappy slushbox. If you would have, I could have taken you to the link that you stumbled upon.

      So, to sum things up, check your "facts" before you try to point out other peoples perceived mistakes, and provide ALL the info in the opening post if you want people to help you better.

      And yes, E-mail Marty at Raxles and have him build you a set of OEM equivilent raxles for you.. A little pricey, but it will be the last time you need axles..

      I'll email marty, but in the GLI's, the Auto w/Tiptronic is an 09A Tranny. Not an 02M. Thanks for your help.

      And just in case other people get confused, O2M axles do not work on a tiptronic transmission car, you need different axles which beyond Raxles or the dealer are unobtanium.

      I'd be interested in your results on this. I have a 2004.5 manual 6 that needed an axle. I contacted GAP and they hadn't experienced my situation yet, but said that based on measurements the Beetle S should be an exact fit. I wasn't willing to test things out and went with Raxle, but if you are then talk to them. Sounds like they're more than willing to swap things out to see if things work.

      I work at oreillys and the same part numbers come up for the 5 speed beetle and 5 speed Jetta. I think I may try it out.

      I can't get 02m axles at oreillys. The ones I get in have a different end on the wheel side. Where ours take a bolt down the center the ones I order have a stud with a nut.

      If just your boot is bad, why not only replace that? Much cheaper than a whole axle.

      Do you know what happens to moving metal parts when grease is removed and abrasive objects are introduced? Nothing good. Yes, if you tore a boot and drove it one mile, replace it... But if it's been bad for a while, might as well move on...

      the axles on http://www.germanautoparts.com/Volks...rivetrain/8/26 looks like a good option; i currently need to change both of them; is funny cause there is alot of different options.

      i rebuilded axles before on different cars and they allways go bad, also some guy told me that this axles can't be rebuild cause they have some kind of bearings or some BS like that (not sure about this) is this true?

      i leave in CA and i got a quote from a local APR dealer for do the job and they want it almost 900 dollars for both of them and 2 hours of labor witch i think is WAY to much.

      i want change do the supesion stage 3 kid from ECs tunning and change the shocks at the same time what you guys think ?
