diff leaking oil, $450 to fix?!?!?!?! Fri, 08 July 2005 07:24 Go to next message
the diff in my corona wagon is leaking oil bad, and there is a bad knocking noise!
the diff specialist dude said it was the main bearings and seels or something, and quated $450 for the new parts and labour

is that too much??

thanks

ppfftttt you can buy a corona for that price. Is it a st141?

If so good condition diffs go for around $80-100 if manual.

keep looking! or price up some freight. It's not a hard job to fix yourself with a 2nd hand centre.
