Thanks - I was operating with several unknowns.

I happened to have what I thought to be a replacement shaft for the
passenger side - it turned out to be drivers side. What I've found is
that the drivers side shaft is significantly longer than the passenger
side - over an inch.

Euro ETKA 7.0 ACOQ 1990 4/07/407-05 item 7. 

11 part numbers listed. 

Also lists 8A0 407 451 GX and 8A0 407 452 GX for 3B too.

But anyway, left parts end in odd numbers, right parts end in evens.
