260E doesn't have a "transaxle", and I've never heard of 'GKN Drivetech'.

Post both things exist possibly. barn dancing hooray!!!!

maybe they have different names for different parts, depending who supplies, but trust me when i say, there's these two bars that are part of the driveshaft, in the rear. some companies call it a part of the transaxle.

my mechanic said driveshaft arms, but there was no match when i searched for the parts. but an image match came up, and both companies said they were transaxle arms.

I'm not sure it that is the best way to find the info you need, and keep all sources open, but are you talking about the propeller shaft parts:

A German would call it "axle shaft" in English.
