Yes erneboy you are correct, that is why I said a complete change of back axle, not that bad a job really providing it fits.
On the original it has to be either broken gearing or broken half shaft.
One has to remember that these parts were made by an individual maker and supplied to the various makes.so it is possible to have one from that will fit, but could be a slightly different ratio. Strip down and count the teeth.

Don't be silly all the time ask your question.

Yes Cabby, easy IF it fits. What are the chances of one from another make of van fitting do you think? I'd estimate that at roughly zero %. But I may be wrong.

Oh dear, one has to think positive erneboy. The manufacturer of the back axles and diffs have numbers on them same as other parts, one just has to match them up.Providing of course one can find one, which is why I have added a link to a Renault UK breakers.Some old back axles had the diffs as a separate part that could be removed and transferred,Like Land Rover, others were the complete unit, sealed into one unit.We have no info on this.

As I said earlier the "P" series Trafics are as rare as doodah wotsit. Virtually all Trafics are "T" series which is FWD.

I would suggest that the chances of finding a Trafic RWD axle in the UK is "slight".

Yes rocking horse doodah is very rare indeed. How ever we have also suggested the Renault traffic owners club.

Maybe Daffy could look through the adverts over there, with guidance from our other Brits abroad.

I was thinking along the lies of possibly an older Peugeot 504 type of vehicle.or the 405. Back axles were not just made for Vans you know.

I know - but have you considered gearing differences between cars like the 404 504 and a Trafic van EVEN if the axle might fit.

PS when did you last see a 404, 504 anywhere outside Africa?
Almost as rare as RWD Trafics

Unless of course someone is still using one as a taxi somewhere on the South Coast

funny enough my first cab was a Peugeot 504 estate. Best estate there ever was, except for maybe the 505 and the Citroen Safari. The BBC outside broadcasts used them when filming around the racecourses.

Anyway, if the Renault rear axle has a diff that can be taken out of the casing in situ, then one only has to find a similar workings to replace as against the whole back axle. Until the OP lets us know then we cannot be of much help.

You never know maybe a diff from a London cab might fit.
