Plenty of videos on YouTube, but the spelling is Axle, not Axel so might not show up if spelled incorrectly. Good luck.

It looks like Motocaddy supply it as an axle, diff and bearings assembly. Thats much better than the individual components that used to be the norm for the S1 when it came out, with a design error on the original axles requiring replacement.

thanks i have a donor trolley, but still i can't figure out how to get it off. Seems like the body assembly is all attached to the diff and axle. The trolley is the older s3 2010 model.

from what I can see on this video


there are bolts on the side of the gear/ diff box.

When you open it one of the problems you might have is the axles may be heat shrunk on to the next component hence why they sell a complete unit.

Aye that's the 2016 s3. I've a 2010 model and the set up is a bit different. The diff and axle is attached to the subframe and doesn't come off as easily in one unit. Appreciate the comments and help. I'll try and take off the 4 bolts on the diff
