Hi
How did your husband get on with replacing his Diff ?
I have most old Jaguar and Daimler workshop manuals, if he needs advice on torque settings let me know.
Good Luck !
John.

Where can I get a refurbished diff or internal gears so I can rebuild the diff myself ? & how much would it set me back,a new 1 fitted by BMW here in Limerick Ireland is near €3500 euros


have you gone on line to look for rebuilders or differential parts suppliers. that would be the first place to look. then you should by a manual on differentials to know what is needed both in tooling and specs for clearances and torque values.

I have replaced bearing on the pinion and crown on nissan 3.2. its has a bad noise. how do i adjust pinion and crown?


Adjustment to crown wheel and pinion has to be done after bearing replacement on the pinion and carrier. It is a method that unless you have done a lot of diff repairs will amount to a trial and error procedure to get it right. Fortunately any work shop manual that you can borrow will have the way to set up the diff and there will be photos and directions on which to move to get the setting right. It is important to get the reading right as correct gear mesh will ensure a long lasting quite diff operation.

2009 GMC Yukon Hybrid with 22,000miles. Needs front differential replacement. What could cause this after 22000 miles? Is this something that will continually re-occur?


Unusual problem,these diffs are not prone to trouble.Most likely was either not set up correctly at the factory or defective parts or leaked and ran low on oil.If they are replacing the whole unit I would not worry,you should be fine.Good Luck!

Look for a used replacement on ebay, craigslist, or junkyards. When you find the parts, then find a shop to install them for you.

I CANT GET OUT THE GEARS FROM THE REAR DIFFERENTIAL ON MY 1998 DODGE DURANGO 4X4 , IS THERE A TRICK OR TECHNIQUE TO THIS OR DO YOU NEED CERTAIN TOOLS OR CAN I DO IT SOME OTHER WAY. PLEASE HELP


Hate to tell you this, but if you can't get the gears out, you will not be able to replace them correctly
(except perhaps the spider gears) Setting up a differential gear set is an exact science involving careful measuring with dial indicators and torque settings. If you don't do this perfectly, whatever you replace will quickly self-destruct. This applies to bearing replacement as well.
You will be better served by replacing the diff "drum to drum" with a unit form a scrapyard. There your only concern will be exactly matching the tooth count on the ring and pinion gears. That's my best advice.
To get your gears out, remove both axles by removing spider gear cross shaft and the "c" clips that retain the axles, then unbolt the two carrier bearing saddles. The center unit should easily pry out of the housing.

Hello,this is Nick...i've got a 1990 bmw 3 series


yes there are many companies that sell window kits to convert the car, as far as the diff noise goes u need a load of special tools to do this repair, by the time u buy all the tools to set the gears up correctly u could pay someone to do it. Do you still want to do the diff gear set?

RING AND PINON


That Number is Supposed to be Printed on a Small tag Somewhere on the Rear End Housing. You will need to get under it with some Degreaser and a Couple of Shop Wrags to find it. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!
