Re: Marcelline the 1.4 Sporting

Driver's side one was out of stock and they don't know when they're getting them in, but if these guys can supply complete shafts for <40 why is it everywhere else they seem to cost 100++?

Re: Marcelline the 1.4 Sporting

I got a replacement from there and (touchwood) had no issues.

Great price and quick delivery!

I think it's the driver's side which is noisy, this is a passenger side one. For the price it seemed mad not to replace them both, but now I need to find a driver's side one for a reasonable price...

Re: Marcelline the 1.4 Sporting

well if you can't find one cheap changing the CV's is not hard, messy yes but not hard at all. I assume the inner one will just be a spider bearing like a cento in the cup, they are super cheap, Big Mick sells them. All you need tool wise other than the normal spanners and sockets is some circlip pliers.

Re: Marcelline the 1.4 Sporting

Replacement has been found, so Marceline is now up for sale in the Classifieds: https://www.fiatforum.com/classified...?product=35063

I'll run the ad on here only for a while before braving AutoTrader/eBay/etc!

Do you mean the ones I bought it with (Dezent), the Abarth ones I had refurbed in white, or the ones it came out of the factory with?

The Dezent ones are on it now, ready for sale. The Abarth ones are off the car, ready to be sold separately, and the originals ... who knows? I never saw them!
