Slightly disappointed would be the understatement after this exercise.
Just help replace the out put shafts bearings on my XJR with units from Coventry west which was an interesting adventure and learning curve.
We did the job with the car on a hoist and kept the diff in the cage, no problem there, just fiddly.
The question I need to ask is can the diff spider gears/ CW and Pinnion be disturbed if one of the output bearings are screwed in too far?
We realised that the unit needed to be flush after it had been screwed in about 1.5mm too far, once we realised it didn’t ‘seat’ up to a shoulder we backed it out so that it was flush with the diff housing.
When I took the car to the workshop all that was emanating from the back end was a grumble because I had blown the r/h side.
Now the diff is making a noise like a banshee at times but if I pull out of a side street turning left the noise disappears for a short distance/time and then starts up again.
Also I can ‘play’ with the noise by either accelerating, coasting or having the car on the overrun.
Which to me seems to exhibit classic c/w and pinion trouble?
