When you turn your car in any direction, left or right, the exterior wheels have to work harder to turn than the interior wheels. The differential in your car is primarily a set of gears that varies the thrust and speeds between the wheels of the car. This way the differential ensures that your car turns smoothly without slippage and enhances the life of your tyres by preventing their wear and tear.
This differential gearbox is present in all types, front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive and even 4WDs and AWDs. Irrespective of the type of your vehicle, if any of the bearings in the differential fall off, or the differential fluid gets contaminated or depleted, it can wreak havoc to your car’s wheels, and may even lead to accidents due to delay in wheel responses.
If you are experiencing any of the following issues with your car, chances are that your differential needs fixing:
- Increased car turnaround time
