“I couldn't of asked for a better service. Friendly, Happy and polite also got the job done very efficiently”

PAUL

Volkswagen Eos • Timing belt and Water pump replacement

3rd May 2019
“Steve was very honest and trustworthy. His communication was first class and he came across very knowledgeable. After listening to my car's problem, he informed me that my car simply needed an oil change rather than a timing chain replacement which I had booked.
In the process he saved me hundreds of pounds and I will certainly keep his number for the future as it is usually very difficult to find a good mechanic.
Thank you Steve.“

How much does a Differential Fluid replacement cost?

The cost of replacing the differential fluid depends on your car and what parts your car's manufacturer recommends using for the replacement. Find out what you could save by having your differential fluid replaced by ClickMechanic, by selecting your car at the top of this page!

What does the Differential Fluid do?

The differential fluid lubricates the internal parts of the car's differential. The differential is a unit that enables the wheels that are driven by the engine to turn at different speeds, a necessity for smooth and stable cornering.

How do you know there is something wrong with the Differential Fluid?

  • Grinding noise from the differential.
  • When the car feels unstable going through a corner.

When should you consider a Differential Fluid replacement?

Over time, the differential fluid's condition can deteriorate to such an extent that it is not able to lubricate the differential's gears adequately anymore. Usually the fluid will thicken due to the intense heat that emerges within the differential casing. Without an adequate level of fluid the differential will not be able to run smoothly and will wear out the gears quicker leading to expensive repairs.

Therefore, should you experience problems with the differential, it is advisable to have the differential and fluid inspected. If necessary, have the differential fluid replaced. Remember that it should always be replaced as and when stipulated in the guidelines set out by your car's manufacturer.

What happens during a Differential Fluid replacement?

  • Mechanic will inspect the differential and the differential fluid.
  • If necessary, the mechanic will replace the differential fluid.
  • Mechanic will advise if any other parts need to be replaced.
  • Mechanic will inspect the differential again for any leaks and, if necessary, test drive the car.
