My mate has a daily 35s12, 2004 and needs a replacement back axle as the diff is very noisy and lots of movement at the bearing.
He has been offered an axle from a 2007 (new shape) Daily, but don't know if it will fit - the new shape has 6 stud wheels instead of 5.
Does anyone know if it will be an easy swap, or is it better to look for one from an earlier model?
apparently, it's next to impossible to change the front bearing due to the way it's pressed in during manufacture, and Iveco want loadsa money to repair - a brand new axle would be almost as cheap (£1500).
I'm not sure how to do it, but check the final drive ratio of the axle, the ratios are different depending on engine size and gross vehicle weight. A single rear wheel axle will not be over 3.5t, but a twin wheel could be anything from 3.5 to 6.5t.
And you don't really want 6 studs unless you change the front as well...you'd have to carry two spare wheels unless you rely on the get-you-home puncture repair stuff, also you'd have to buy the 6 stud wheels as well!
Feel free to post a wanted ad for the axle on the forum link below
Hi, can anyone please offer some advice? I have an X Registration 59 12 (horsebox) with 240000 kms on the clock. I had the oil and filter changed about 2 months ago and ever since it is drinking engine oil. Has anyone any suggestions please? The engine is quite wet with oil underneath but it always has been and there is no pools of oil after it has been left standing. Many thanks
