No - normal clearance CN is not marked. C3 is increased clearance.

My error was to write that C2 was normal clearance and it is not.

Ok, thanks, got it now :-)

I think I'll get the proper bearing and change it again. I can get the driveshaft out quite easily and quickly now, the only thing that puts me off is having to top up the gearbox oil again :-(

Cheers,

Bern.

Hi,
I thought I had found a right side shaft (the right equivalent to https://www.sjsportscars.com/parts-and- ... R6007S.htm which is A100R6006S) on elise-shop BUT unfortunately although it was listed on http://www.elise-shop.com/a100r6006s-p-346005.html they just refunded me so ... Not available anymore there either.

Ah, shame.

I tried to buy the complete intermediate shaft from them, but they refunded me also. Lucky really, because I didn't need it and the bearing was very reasonably priced and easy to fit (well, once I knew what I was doing).

I've now fitted the correct bearing on the shaft (standard clearance). The difference was noticeable on the bench, but hasn't made any difference to the way it drives.

Would anybody know if the CV joints are directional, would a left hand CV joint work on a right hand shaft? I may take apart my old left hand shaft and take a look. That SJ only list the left hand joint suggests that they are different. Obviously the tulip at the inboard end is different, but I'd imagine that the spiders are the same.

The outer CV Joints are the same part number (A100R6003S) so not directional.
