There are only 2 lengths of shaft. Your shaft's length can be determined easily by easily measuring the shorter section of the shaft between the inside edge of the bearing to the inside edge of the rear mounting spider. This measurement needs to be done once the shaft has been removed from the vehicle. Please see the images below for reference and how to measure.
SHORT SHAFT: 22CM from the inside edge of bearing to the inside edge of the rear spider.
LONG SHAFT: 27CM from the inside edge of bearing to the inside edge of the rear spider.
Originally the Volkswagen Touareg, VW Touareg and the Audi Q7 was a joint venture by VAG to build an off-road sports-utility car. Obviously the more popular of the three is the Volkswagen Touareg this is due to the Toureg being the more affordable vehicle both new and second hand. These all have their styling and power plants but underneath they have the same driveline, and therefore the same propshaft.
We first started to see these propshafts for repair in 2008. Some of the vehicles had as little as 50,000 miles on the clock before the propshaft failed. This, as we are sure you’ll agree isn’t very good for a vehicle of this age or marque. Back in 2008 it was hard to source anything other than a complete shaft and we reluctantly fitted a few complete shafts for some of our customers, we then spent some time finding out where the original parts were manufactured and managed to find a supply, the fault was common and the parts were now available from the same factory that manufacturers parts are supplied (GKN).
It is fair to say then that the fault is standard to the touareg, Q7 and Touareg, and that the manufacturers had made a part that was pretty good, but just fell short of the longevity that most owners would desire. The problem is that carrier bearing simply is not man enough for its application and gives up at normally to 50 - 70,000 mile stage.
The repair is a well-trodden path for us as we have seen so very many of these vehicles, but beware this is a specialist area and you do not want just anyone dismantling your shaft.
We stock remanufactured replacement propshafts for Volkswagen Touareg variants at our Rusper depot - map here - and can generally fit them while you wait.
