Rover diff damage 24 spline

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

Just stripping down an axle from 96 D1 and much to my surprise i found this when i popped the diff out... is this a common failure (see photo)?

Definitely not unheard of.

Common enough, and I think in much smaller form may have been the cause for the repeated shearing of the cross pin retaining roll-pin in my wife's 2009 90 (they replaced the two circlips with one roll-pin through the end of the cross pin and carrier).  I think this is one of several reasons why Nige doesn't stock standard Rover diffs, just heavier duty stuff.
