In terms of safety and performance, one of the most important components of the vehicle is the axle and differential. The differential is a special gearbox on the axle that allows the left and right wheels to rotate at different speeds when the automobile turns to improve traction by extending tire life. For manual vehicles, you can detect if you’re in need of differential service and repair if the engine produces a speeding up sound when it is really not speeding up, or if your clutch pedal stays on the floor.
If you’re unsure if you need to have your differential looked at or serviced, bring in your vehicle and we’ll take a look and assess what should be done. The process includes removal, dis-assembly, and cleaning/inspection, then putting it all back together and installing back in the vehicle. Please feel free to give AV Bumper to Bumper a call to set up an appointment to bring in your car for service or repair.
