I'm curious - how long do the intermediate shaft bearings usually
last? My 1.6TD has ~300k kms (perhaps more, as it was pulled
from a wrecked car with unknown mileage). I just replaced rods and
main bearings in hopes of improving oil pressure. They appeared to
be original VW bearings, and were worn, but not badly scored,
except for one rod and one main bearing. I hope this will be enough
to buy me a few more years, as this car is too tired to warrant a full
rebuild (455k kms, and rust starting to set in)....
