230TE
HI, here in the UK, I have a 1990 230TE auto, 123k, in surf blue. Sadly my drives side drive shaft has snapped and I'm struggling to find a replacement, I got a used one but it appears too long to fit and I also got a new SKF one, but the hub end spline shaft is too large... Used one is 665mm and SKF one is 654mm long. The used shaft fits the hub well, but the diff end (with 6 holes) just won't go in the diff.
Am I missing something or doing something wrong?

Any advice greatly appreciated.
