A/T Differential Backlash Inspection

  1. Install the driveshaft and intermediate shaft into the differential assembly, and place the axles on V-blocks (A).
  1. Measure the backlash of the pinion gears (B) with a dial indicator (C).
    Standard:
    0.05−0.15 mm (0.002−0.006 in.)

  1. If the backlash is out of standard, replace the differential carrier.
