  • Hairline crack in diff cover casing

    Ok so I found out why my diff drips a bit of oil from time to time - found a small crack/split near the lower drain bolt - looks like it’s been over tightened at some point.

    Any pointers on best way to remedy? Repair, weld (aluminium?), new cover, second hand etc? Any help appreciated….

    Thanks

    Worth trying to get it repaired if you can as they are now expensive new and rare second hand . New rubber bush now comes as a separate part and is pricey by itself.

    You will need a decent aluminium welder.

      Thanks Dave - I’ll go down the repair route first and see if I can sort it that way - thanks for the advice….
