Default Urgently need a drive shaft for 99-05

Good morning all,

I am in the process of swapping out my auto trans in a 99 NB with an 04 MSM 6-speed....

The damn drive shaft was supposed to be "the same" but turns out that the splines don't match up at all.... ****!

Are there any members within driving distance of the DC metro area that wants to sell a driveshaft for cheap!? I am in a pickle since the car is my ride to PA for the obligatory Easter family visit. :(

Thanks all and cheers!

certain year auto driveshafts are different than manual.
you need a manual shaft for 94-05 5spd or 6, it will all work.
i don't remember which year auto shafts work. obviously yours does not

Ben, I can say with 100% assurance that the 99 Automatic Driveshaft is not the same as the 04 MSM driveshaft. lol

Anyhow, I have ordered one from thepartsgroup.com and hope to have it on Monday. Still would not cry if someone wanted to loan me one for the duration...

Thanks all for the help!

Cheers,
Prospero
