M/T Differential

Backlash Inspection


Final Driven Gear/Carrier Replacement

  1. Place the differential assembly on V-blocks (A), and install both axles.

  1. Measure the backlash of both pinion gears (B) with a dial indicator (C). If the backlash is not within the standard, replace the differential carrier.

    Standard (New):

0.05 - 0.15 mm (0.002 - 0.006 in.)

  1. Remove the bolts (left-hand threads) in a criss-cross pattern in several steps, then remove the final driven gear (A) from the differential carrier (B).

  1. Install the final driven gear with the chamfer on the inside diameter facing the carrier. Tighten the bolts in a criss-cross pattern in several steps.
