Rear Pinion

Hey all. I am going to replace my leaking pinion seal. What's the torque for it? I can't find it on here.

Thanks

are you referring to the 10 bolts hold the differential to the axle housing? If so it's 40 Nm or 30lbf/ft. hope that helps.

The one big bolt that is in the middle of the flange from the drive shaft.

From the workshop manual, it looks like it's 130 Nm. Convert that here if you need to www.convert-me.com

hmmm, I would check with Trevor on this one but when I did mine the place that installed the R&P told me to note the tork required to remove the bolt, then use that as a guid to refit it. THere is a crush sleave in there and you don't want it to be too loose or too tight. This was the advice given too me by 2 different shops, and they also said o make sure there are no burs or anything in there that would mess up the new seal. When I did mine it took a bit more then 130 Nm to get it off, and I put it on with the same torc, I have just finished a 3oo mile round trip and it ran fine.

If it is a Rover style diff, there is no crush sleeve. It should done up really tight. You can't really overtighten. The manual specification is meant to be enough to prevent it self loosening.

It is scary that shop say things like that. Makes you wonder if they have ever seen the inside of a Rover diff....

There are 2 styles of pinion shaft used on the Rover Diff. If it has a big nut the torque is around 100 ft/lbs, if it has a 12mm bolt that threads into the pinion shaft, the torque is around 60 ft/lb.

I noticed while I was trying to replace the rear pinion seal that there was a lot of play to the drive flange. Since I don't have the right size socket at the moment to remove the big nut my question is this. Is there a bering in the pinion or is it just the seal that keeps everything from moving around?

If the nut is tight and there is play, a pinion bearing is gone. You need to pull and disassemble the pumpkin to replace the pinion bearings. You need a press or the special tool to replace the outer races.
