5 GTT drive shafts, will fit a 1,7l GTE?
« on: 17:42, Thu 03 November 2011 »
Hi everyone

I just wonder if the drivetrain on a GTT will fit a GTE? GT Turbo spares told me that the 5GTT has a different transmission, driveshaft etc. than the campus. And I wonder if anyone know if it is different than the GTE? which has the same exterior/interior trim. My local deler has alot of different shafts and no experience in these cars, I will buy new from UK if the 5GTT fits.

My problem is which transmission do I have? And how can I get the answer?  :)
My engine is 1,7 fuel injected and 5 gear manual

Technical specs from local dealership for GTE-driveshaft (left side) two different types:

Will both fit maybe?
   
transmission type JB0/1/3, manual transmission;
left front end , splints wheelside 21, Length 598 mm

transmission type JB4/5,
manual transmission;
left front end , splints wheelside 21, Length 611 mm

To simplify it yes the gt driveshafts will fit your gearbox. I have done may swaps with many different boxs and everytime the gt shafts fit in nicely

Are you just buying shafts or intending to fit hubs too?

To know what gearbox you have you should have a tag on the top of your box saying the code

Thanks! :D

My left driveshaft has a big hole in the plastic gaiter and it's completely dry. It's also making sounds. Do you think I should change hubs too? I am planning to change both drive trains when I'll do it.

I've seen many GTT specialists selling longer drive trains than the standard ones. Whats up with that? :)

Does the GTE use the same brake set up as the GT Turbo? If it does the hubs will be same so may aswell leave them.

As for longer shafts, don't know why as there were no differents length shafts for the 5. Only thing can think is they are selling the wrong shafts
