9213 Views 18 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  linkzhl
was wondering if anyone has installed those part numbers for CV Axles on the 500 ABARTH part numbers FI8005 -FI8006

i need to change mine on both sides and I'm trying to confirm they actually fit on my 2014 Abarth 500.

this would help me so much

thanks

if someone has fit those it would be great to confirm it.
@DEEZBOY

Seriously - contact Moparpartsgiant with your VIN Number to ensure that you obtain the correct part numbers.

This is not the type of part you want to find does not fit when your 500 is scattered all over your garage floor - there are many variations and updates through the years.
I’m not sure what those numbers are, you posted. Do you have a manual, or automatic transmissio? Mopar parts, only sell 2 versions of those halfshafts. One is for the 6 speed automatic, the other is for the 5 speed manual transmission. Left and right halfshafts. Turbo, non turbo cars. Check out that Mopar parts site I sent you. Those parts they list, are the correct parts numbers. If you unsure, give them a call.

im fully aware of this information you provided and the point of this thread is not to use Mopar parts but to find aftermarket parts.

the part numbers i provided FI8005 AND FI8006 are half shaft for 500 Abarth 2014 years and up
if you google those part numbers you will fid this information as well.
Since aftermarket half shafts, now are available. I doubt any one ever used them. You really need to contact, that company. Sur Track. Call up O’Reilly‘s parts, they carry those haftshafts. Ask them.

There are only 2 version. One for a manual transmission, and one for an automatic transmission.

Personally myself, I’d go with OEM ones. they’ve lowered the price.

Chi-Com parts straight up suck.

OEM FIAT/MOPAR is the sure way to go.

I would also go OEM on something like that.
Adding to this old thread for historical reference. Part number for the Mopar shafts for my 2013 manual transmission Abarth was RL105679AA, same part for both sides. They were rebuilt ones, so I got charged a core charge which was returned to me when I brought the old shafts back. Interesting to note, the inner ends of those are not a splined shaft like typical CV shaft, but the exposed spider gear and the boot. So removal involved undoing the boot clamp and just pulling the whole thing out. I cleaned out the "cup" part still attached to the transmission, and packed some axle grease in there as well as on the spider gear of the replacement shaft and in the boot of the replacement shaft. Putting it back in, I had to clamp the inner boot to the "cup" part, which was honestly the worst part of the whole job. For future reference, make sure to account for getting CV boot clamps and whatever tool is needed to go with them, I was fortunate my local parts shop had ones that worked.

I'm running into the same issue - finding this part for my 2012 Abarth 5-speed. The dealer says the outer CVs are as you said the same for left and right (RL105679AA) but they are SPENDY!!! I was hoping to find an aftermarket axle but haven't had any luck yet. Anyone find these axles aftermarket or are we stuck with only using OEM?

I'll be replacing my front right CV/Axle this spring. Found this at RockAuto. $50.

Can anybody out there advise? Anybody ever install these?

I'm not adverse to spending the $250 for the MOPAR if it's the best shot, but....$200 is $200.

Whoops.

If you have an Abarth, this is not the correct shaft. If you do not have an Abarth, it appears correct for a manual transmission car.

Yes, you are correct.
