Most rear wheel drive vehicles feature a separate rear differential which transmits the drive from the gearbox to the rear wheels. All four wheel drive vehicles feature a separate rear differential, and may also feature a front differential too (depending on the engine configuration). The bearings in a differential can start to break down and become noisy.
The vehicle will continue to function as normal but will become noisy. At this stage the differential can be rebuilt with new bearings and seals without the need to replace the differential completely, usually at great expense.
Here at Hardy Engineering we have the knowledge and experience to rebuild your differential, ensuring the correct pre loads on the new bearings as well as ensuring the correct tooth contact between the differential gears. This ensures the quiet operation of the differential as well as maximising its operating life.
