E85 3.0si differential (3.23)

Post by Petahgreen » Mon Jun 29, 2020 6:15 pm

My diff makes a total racket when off throttle. I’m thinking of just replacing it with a used one rather than sending it off for service which could be very pricey?

I’m aware that the 3.0si E85 is 3.23 rather than the E86.(think that’s 3.46)

Anyone got one or know of a breaker who might?

Thanks

I've got one. E85 3.0si. 57k miles. I removed it when I installed my LSD.

How much are you looking to spend?

Well I’ve just replaced my clutch and flywheel trying to sort the noise! So feeling the pinch a bit. Seems like these go for between £200-350? What would you be looking for, £250?

Yep - I can do £250. Where are you? I'm in Somerset - collection would be easier, for obvious reasons!

I’m in Wimbledon! Where abouts in Somerset are you?

Just to confirm was the diff nice and quiet before you took it off? Mine howls like no ones business when off throttle!
