Differential Removal

6 of 23
The differentials are generally the lowest part of the vehicle and will often have a few scrapes that may offer an uneven surface when trying to reseal the cover to the axlehousing. Gently tap the surface with a smooth-faced hammer to ensure the best possible surface to seal the differential covers on the axlehousing. Be sure to tap down any irregularities and clean the surface of old sealant, grease, oil, or dirt before sealing up the differential.
