Doesn't matter if its off a car with a Q2 fitted, it's easy enough to replace most people say you should have a good look at the cup as well for possible damage/wear and replace accordingly

Yes it will fit. It is the same shaft.

Wheel off
Hub nut (you'll need a new one)
Separate bottom ball joint
Knock shaft out of hub
Pull shaft from box.

Reverse procedure.
Don't catch diff seal
Hub nut is 270nm i think. Do a search, basiaclly ft
Fill gearbox oil from filler at back of diff an check using the dipstick which fits in the filler hole.
Track car or pay for new tyres in a months time when it wears the edge off them cos you didn't ( the last one is either, or. You choose )

Be prepared to replace lower arms as separating them usually finishes them off. Do both sides
