Steering shaft - worn uj's


Recommended Posts

Hi all, I want to do a bit of work on my '93 TDi 200.

I've got a bit of play in one of the uj's at the top of the steering shaft. I just checked various sites and it appears that you can't buy a replacement top uj on it's own, only the bottom one is available separately.

As a new shaft inc both UJ's is about £50+vat (Paddocks), I'm trying to find cheaper alternatives. Does anyone know if it's possible to demount the top uj and replace it with a bottom one??

Thanks very much for your comments guys.

I looked at the car again and decided that the majority of play was actually in the steering box, so I adjusted (very carefully) the allen bolt on top of the box and now all the play that I was feeling whilst driving, has gone.

There is still a minute amount of play on the top UJ, but it doesn't seem to impact on the feel of the steering, so hopefully all is now well.

Thanks again, Dave
