I found it on ebay. No requirement to return the old one. The same seller seems to have increased the price now up to approx 110GBP:Where do you get new SKF driveshafts for 80gbp? Do you need to send the old one back?
Thanks for the information. I am right now waiting in a phone line at SKF customer support to get their side of this. Might have to wait for next week as they probably have gone for the weekend.@Joga the conclusion was that SKF is saying it's the correct one and did not want to alter or state that it is the incorrect P/N for an A2.
A lot of communication by mail an phone followed with supplier's and SKF, but they didn't want to know about it or change the faulty information.
Probably it's a drive shaft for a Polo or similar platform.
The owner returned the shaft, and installed the old one in the end.
It was going to be replaced because of vibration and the shaft was suspicious for this.
The old shaft itself was not defective, and the option was to replace both of the CV joints as an alternative and keep the correct length....... Althougah there was no follow up on this.
I'm sorry to be a messenger of bad news, but it would be a bummer to have a lot of work on it, and would be after all for nothing.
