Our pugeot 405 diesel did that. Big clunk noise.... worked ok for a bit. Next morning there was gear box fluid all over the driveway!

Had mangled up the gearsand broken the gasket too.

See if you can find a second hand box.

driveshafts spin even when the car is stationary thats why the ends are called CONSTANT VELOCITY - meaning they alwasys move at a speed relative to each other.

If your stuck for a box ill give u mine for 30.

Nice one, if you can get one, the VWs can't be beaten!

I have to make do with a 1.4i (LS) Corsa B, compare that to a nice golf of similar spec and it'll go faster and feel more solid

Put your car on axle standard and start the engine in neutral, the wheels spin. Can easily be stopped, but they do spin.

EDIT: If the driveshaft is spinning but the wheel is not then the problem is at the hub end as the wheel should be fixed to the driveshaft.
