The differential has a hard
life, it rotates the outside driven wheel on your vehicle faster than the inside
driven wheel to improve the cornering and performance of your vehicle whilst
maintaining your tyre's maximum usable life. Without it your tyres would wear
prematurely. During this process torque is transferred from the centre drive
shaft, through 90 degrees to the driveshaft that turn the vehicles wheels.
We supply new and
reconditioned car differentials, drive shafts and prop shafts. We recondition
and rebuild here at our Rosebery workshop.
The drive-train serves two
functions: it transfers power evenly from the engine to all drive wheels and it
varies the amount of torque. The drive-train may include the differential, a
transfer case (in four-wheel and all-wheel drive cars) and the transmission.
When your wheels are
turning, your car's differential is hard at work adjusting for the different
paths of the inside and outside wheels so that undue slippage doesn't occur. The
differential fluid's job is to lubricate gears, bearings and shafts in this
system. Our Differential Service replaces the old, depleted fluid with new.
The differential is the
mechanical component that spins both the left and right wheels, but lets them
rotate at different speeds so that the vehicle can make turns. When a vehicle
makes a turn, the outer wheel has to turn faster than the inner wheel, due to
the difference in the length of the paths they take. The differential is located
between the two wheels, and is attached to each wheel by an axle shaft.
Four-wheel drive vehicles have a separate differential for each pair of wheels,
connected through a transfer case.
Transfer Case Service
Transfer cases are found on
four-wheel drive and all-wheel drive vehicles. This gearbox divides the
transmission power output between the rear differential and the front
differential. Most transfer cases allow the front wheels to be disengaged and
spin freely during normal driving conditions. When desired, power is transferred
to all four wheels.
Transfer case fluid provides lubrication to gears, bearings,
shafts, and other internal components. It is important to keep your transfer
case serviced and not forgotten as repairs can be very costly.
If you have any questions or
if your differential transfer case are giving you problems, then give us a call
today and let us take a look at your vehicle.
