FL1 RHS front driveshaft IRD seal leak

Recommended Posts

Whilst under my wife's facelift TD4 sorting out some MOT work I noticed that the front right hand side driveshaft inner CV cup is damp. The output seal for the drive shaft in the IRD seems to be the culprit.

Whilst searching t'web I have come across a few posts indicating that the IRD support bearing for the shaft is a possible contributor to a leak like this, and that a worn inner CV can be a factor.

Is there a simple test I can perform to ascertain if the support bearing needs replacing?
