Default Driveshafts

Hello all. Hope everyone is good.

At the weekend I changed my drivers side drive shaft.

I did this as the CV boot was split which I found at the end of January after the MOT [which didn't pick it up] when I was putting the under tray back on.



I neglected to fix the split boot, so of course, dirt and water started to get into it and eventually it started whirring and making a horrible noise.

Upon turning the hub and trying to get that end of the drive shaft out of the wheel bearing, the drive shaft proceeded to split in half.



And the ball bearing type things fell out







My question is, can drive shafts split in half like this, or are they supposed to be solid and my drive shaft in fact was absolutely knackered?

The inner joints aren't 'secured' by anything other than the CV boot so you have to be careful when removing the outter joint from the hub. As your CV boot was already torn there was even less strength in the boot to support it.

I need to replace the same inner boot on my T5, however the joints aren't clicking at all so I will simply be cleaning/regreasing then replacing the boot.
