    Car Differential Replacement in Hamilton

    What does the differential (diff) do?Differential repairs Hamilton NZ

    When you make a turn in your car, the wheels on the outside have to spin further than the wheels on the inside. This is because they travel a further distance. The differential (also known as a diff) is what allows two wheels to operate independently at different speeds, preventing skidding and other problems. Inside the differential (diff) is a set of gears that adjusts the rotational speed of each wheel, allowing for smoother and easier turning of the car.

    In a front-wheel drive, the differential (diff) is usually integrated into the transmission and remains lubricated with the differential oil. This means that if there is a lack of differential oil, a lot of strain will be put on the differential and premature wear may occur. Problems with the differential can also be caused by old age and wear over time.

    Symptoms of differential (diff) problems:

    Loud whining noises – Whining noises are one of the most common symptoms of differential problems. If the fluid that lubricates your differential (diff) is running low, the differential will not be lubricated properly. This can lead to whining noises will accelerating or turning.

    Increased tyre wear – If the differential fails, your tyres will be moving at the same speed when turning around corners. This will lead to the inner tyres wearing a lot more quickly. If you are often having to replace tyres, the differential could be the issue.

    Vibrations – If your differential’s mounting joints or connecting drive shaft universal joints become worn or damaged, you will most likely experience vibrations while driving. These vibrations will usually intensify as your accelerate.
