They told me the cost would be 260 all in which includes the cost of the Diagnostic too.
Not a bad price tbh from a dealer. It cost me about 130 to have a driveshaft changed at a local independant, without a diagnostic.

Make sure they change the part ad don't just reset the ABS light

Anychance you can get the driveshaft back off them too. If it is the wrong one then it will still be of use to someone if you can find the part no out and sell it.
Currently in Mike11's garage:
An LPG powered Ford Focus ST170.
