Ring and Pinions - How to Deal With Ring & Pins Problems?

 If your vehicle seems to be having a series of Ring and Pinion problems, it's likely that you have an internal component fault. It's very difficult to diagnose the cause of a ring and pinion faults as they are quite often hidden away under a few other mechanical parts of the vehicle.

Master Bearing Kit Pinion Bearing Kits are available and should be changed at the same time as installation of new Ring & Pinion Gear, also Spyder/Side Gears, and axles plus miscellaneous small parts.

You can identify problems with your Rear End/Differential;  there are four typical problems associated for General Motor vehicles Differential/Rear End are Ring and pinion failure:

Problem #1

Regular “clunking” or loud “clicking” every few feet may indicate a broken ring or pinion gear tooth. “Banging, clicking or clunking” while cornering can be caused by broken carrier bearings or side gears commonly called “spider gears”, lack of sufficient/lack of positraction lubrication, or worn positraction clutches, bearing failure, seal failure, fluid failure. 

Problem #3

Check for worn bearings and replace as necessary

Probably the worst case damaged ring and pinion set you will see!

Problem #2

Worn carrier or pinion bearings create excessive play between the gears and produce an uneven wear pattern or chipping teeth.

Problem #4

Improper break-in mileage can and will lead to premature wear and damage. 

As indicated these issues can be caused by many things, including: internal component damage such as bearing wear, chipped tooth on ring or pinion teeth, oil contamination, positraction clutch/discs components wear of failure, worn out seals causing by lack of fluid or wear, age, environment. Vibrations of the drivelines over an extended period.  Seals assembly and vibration problems within the transmission and drivelines.

 

To determine where the problem with rear of front end, you can drain the fluid by removing drain plug or removing the cover bolts, check the clutch discs for any wear and tear. This can be caused by wear and tear on the disc due to extended normal usage. There are also a variety of reasons why your clutch might be worn out. You might notice some slipping when engaging four wheel drive.

 

The first step is to look at all of the different systems on your vehicle differential determine if they are causing the problem. With the cover off you can inspect these components which might not be working properly, but there is something that is causing all of the problems, then there could be an issue with the internal ring and pinion, bearings, traction components, drain the fluid and look for tiny sliver flakes caused by excessive bearing wear or gear load pattern, see below:

 

It's important to check the differential fluid/coolant level every time you change motor oil or at service intervals. When you check the differential fluid level, you should check to make sure that you don't overfill the rear end by pushing too much into the case or you may damage the pinion or wheel seals. Look for sludgy brown lubricant, caused  by leaking seals allowing the differential to inhale water, (because the lubricant & housing are hot and water is cold) this happened often when lunching your boat at the marina, or driving in flooding conditions.

 

To determine if there is a problem with your ring and pinion, you can check the individual teeth for any chips, irregular wear patterns. This wear and tear is typically caused by bearing wear or pinion crush sleeve giving up and alignment being out of specifications due to normal usage. You can also chip tool while trying to get unstuck from mud, snow or sand  (the old trick of slight reverse and rapid shift to forward).  There are also a variety of reasons why your posi clutches might be worn out.

 

If you do notice any signs that you might have a ring and pinion problem, you can try to take them to a mechanic for a diagnostic inspection. They will be able to tell you if you are having a ring and pinion problem or not. If you're unsure, you can always go to your local auto repair center and get the parts you need to fix the ring and pinion problems in your vehicle.

 

Ring and pinion problems can be fixed, so don't be afraid to call a mechanic, (you supply the parts and save money). It is also possible to do these repairs yourself and save a lot of money, we do not suggest that the inexperience person attempt this job, look for a friend or associate to help. You will need access to press for installation of pinion bearing.

If you have to take it to a shop (dealer not recommend) be prepared to pay between one thousand to fifteen hundred.  A good way to ask the shop manager, what is you hourly shop rate, then ask how many hours does he expect the repair to take?

 

After the repair ask manager to take you on a test drive, you can listen for same noise or new noises.  We also suggest you ask to see old parts that were replaced. This are some of the things you should look for and this will help you know if you have a problem with your ring and pinion assembly.

 

The best way to prevent ring and pinion problems is to make sure that the correct fluid is being used, including posi fluid if required) and that the pinion is installed correctly. After your vehicle inspection.  Ask the manager if any other issues that man need repair were noticed. While paying the bill ask to see written warranty on both parts and labor.
