Dealerships, car repair shops, transmission repair shops, tire stores and differential repair businesses are among the types of shops fixing rear differentials. Randys Worldwide Automotive recommends using four-wheel drive specialists due to the volume of differential work performed by those technicians.
Car dealerships typically provide service departments covering all areas of repair, including rear differential work.
Other repair shops that work on differentials may only perform particular tasks. Even differential repair shops impose limitations on types of jobs. For instance, shops may preclude work on large trucks or in-car work on particular Jaguar or Mercury models, requiring owners to pull the differential system from the vehicle.
Shops with mechanics certified by the Automotive Service Excellence organization or the Automatic Transmission Rebuilders Associations ensure quality repairs no matter the shop type.
