Unfortunately the 3 part propshaft is balanced (at the Factory) as a single unit, I.E. after it is bolted together
I don’t know how or where you could get it rebalanced,
So unless the previous owner has marked the 2 flanges?
you have a 25% chance of it being correct when you bolt it together,
Are there any other marks on the flanges or even the shafts themselves which may indicate which way it fits?
mind you it is not as critical as wheel balancing as the radial force in comparison is miniscule
btw how would you feel about starting another thread of your own, detailing your rebuild?
I think it might be better than just tagging on to the end of this thread.

One option is I repair prop shaft bearing now using Mercedes W124 parts, install shaft back to car and shortly test drive to see if read end is working or not, possible if any abnormal voice coming from anywhere etc.
this is probably your best bet
I think I may have a gearbox/drive train/rear diff manual here, will look later for you
According to this it is from a CSR gearbox
which would make it from a VR6 gearbox
Looked on eBay.de but only complete gearboxes, at 500 to 600 euros + postage
Brilliant work, its big daft smile on your face time!

Best of luck finding a Passat
but here is a Golf3 VR6 Syncro in Netherlands
it is not usually the switch body which wears out but the small return springs rust out & the internal electric connections get dirty & no longer connect to make the circuit(s).
Good idea though, there must be lots more NLA small plastic parts that could be 3D printed?
Any chance you can scan the manual for all of us on here please?
Where is the exhaust going to fail?
I hope you like Jigsaw puzzles?
It will not release the diff lock until you select 2nd or 3rd gear, it is not supposed to, it keeps the diff locked in 1st so you have more chance of rocking a stuck car out when it is sitting in deep ruts
Good to see you back.
