sounds like your c/v joint has collapsed mate.try euro car parts for a cheap price to buy,not a difficult job for a garage


if you haven't fixed this yet take it to t a Garage or Dealership


was the axle moving clockwise, or counter clockwise? scraping noise, or tap, type? to confirm the right side axle was spinning, NOT THE LEFT?? the trans was engaged in first gear, and the clutch was out, what held the car in place??
