Sell a Van with a Broken Differential

Diagnosing differential failure can be challenging and requires experienced mechanical expertise as problems experienced could potentially be other issues and not related to the differential. Typically, differential problems are associated with sounds and vibrations. If you are experiencing whirring sounds when accelerating, whining sounds when decelerating, clanking and banging sounds (particularly on corners) then you may have a broken differential. Vibrations and rumbling of the steering wheel are also another tell-tale sign.

Differential issues are usually preventable as they usually relate to lubrication problems where gear oil has not been changed for an excessive period. When the damage is done the costs of repair can be excessive and mount up. Typical associated repairs include replacing oil seals, differential gaskets, backlash adjustment, repair labour, large-scale differential dismantling, replacement gear oil (typically three litres), etc. Costs will vary according to severity but are upwards of £300 and can easily run to £1,000+, which in many cases will render the van beyond economic repair. Only relatively new vans can justify outlays of £1,000+.

A van with a faulty differential just can’t be safely driven. In older van models particularly, the repair/scrap equation tends to lean to scrap. Often differential repair bills escalate as it’s hard from the outset for garages to provide an absolute fixed price. Why take the risk of an escalating differential repair bill for yourvanwhen you can sell to We Buy Broken Vans today? We use the word escalating as these repairs are notoriously difficult to estimate from the outset and invariably rise during the repair process.
