Diff suspect its done....

Recommended Posts

So I've had a few strange noises when reversing and turning (not me - the Eclat), got the Eclat up in the air this morning and spun one of the rear wheels, to my surprise the opposite wheel didn't move, tried the other side and the same result. Normal behavior for an open diff is the wheels spin in the opposite direction, 

Am I correct in thinking there is an issue?

Ive found it depends what has the least resistance - the other wheel or the input shaft.

It could just be slightly stiff wheel bearings / brakes that means the rotation is making its way to the input shaft rather then the other wheel.
