Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
hi there I want to ask you about the front differential pinion nut , what should be the torque specs for it ? I been told to use 1/2 inch impact gun I did a seal but It started getting noisy at high speed I loosen the nut a bit sounds like th sound good less loud let me know because I didn't mark it , thanks 2005 ford explorer
its a 2005 ford explorer , I its noisy at high speed , its front diffrential seal
I did and the ford mechanic on here told me no need preload . for the
front just the back that is why i didn't mark it .
it was really noisy when I go over 100km/h when I am at low speed
it doesn't make any noise but now the noise has went better maybe
not serious ? I am thinking of leaving it or loose in it little bit more to see
if the noise goes away at high speed what you think ?
Well, you may be lucky if the noise has gone away, back it off a "fraction" before you drive any more.
Lesson learnt here is always mark components that are assembled with a nut where a shaft has bearings at opposing ends, ie: diff pinions, gearbox countershafts etc. Hope you can sort it. Gary
why it makes noise at high speed ? and not at low ? I am going to try to loose it a bit more but just enough not to come off ,
