So, I’ve been meaning to replace my driveshaft center bearing on the QSW for a while now (read: I’ve had the parts for better than 2 months… )
And, it looks like I need to take the center u-joint out of the shaft, so I can get to the bolt securing the yoke to the front shaft (so I can replace the bearing.)
Problem: nobody seems to list a driveshaft u-joint for a QSW (or for, say, a 4000Q.)
Does someone maybe have a part# (aftermarket is fine) for said u-joint? Or, can I get the shaft apart without replacing the u-joint?
And, looking for some parts, too, if someone has spares they want to sell:
-Driver’s sun visor, cloud white (went “puffy”, and the hinge is cracked)
- Sunroof crank (mine’s missing the release button)
- Stock front springs (PPO decided to do ‘lower by cutting.’)
So, I also asked the Syncronized list the same question (tackle it from both sides, yo!)
And, after a bit of wierdness (which is still going on, BTW), someone offered up useful info!
So, I post it here, to share with the group:

He also said that it is possible to separate the driveshaft (for center bearing replacement) without blowing the center U-joint out first (not that I find it hard to replace a U-joint, though.)
he offered up front springs cheap. And, someone else did a hurried stripping of a QSW that was getting scrapped (don't know why), and rescued the interior bits I'm looking for from it.
