2015 Hilux diff issues


Recommended Posts

Hi I have a 2015 model Hilux SR last of the old shape. The diff centre failed at 9500K's and Toyota rejected warranty due to what they claimed to be shock loading. I took it to a diff shop for further advice and he told me that Hilux diffs are a real problem but Toyota wont admit it. He went on to say that most aren't set up properly ie backlash in crown wheel and pinion is not set properly. Has anyone else had issues like this. I ended up paying for the repair to get the car back on the road, ironically the parts bloke quoted the price for the diff centre of the top of his head without even looking at the computer. What does that tell you.
