What Is a Differential?

A differential is one of the more obscure parts of any car, so we've included a short explanation here for your convenience. 

A differential allows the two halves of your back axle to rotate at different speeds when your car is cornering. This differential tire speed helps you stay glued to the road and safe when cornering if you're going a little faster. If you look to the right, you'll see the inside of a differential we've included as an example.

As you can imagine, gear oil changes for your differential are essential to keeping your car driving safely. 

To change your differential's oil, we'll remove the oil stopper on the casing to drain the old fluid. Afterward, we'll replace your drain plug and open the filling port to top up your differential's gearbox. 

Finally, we'll dispose of the used oil responsibly.
