Last weekend I found that one of the bolts securing the diff to the sub frame had snapped. This weekend I pulled the differential out so I could drill and extract the broken bolt. What a PITA.

I gotta say - the factory paint on these things is insanely good. With not much effort (relatively speaking!!) the 15-year old, quarter million kms paint comes up like a showroom finish... simply amazing...

Nice catch! Had that let go on you those diffs aren’t cheap... believe me I know...

I was just surprised myself, pulled the back brakes apart and found a broken lower caliper bolt on the passenger side! Thankfully just the head had broken off somehow and the caliper stayed in place and amazingly I was able to grab the bolt with vice grips and remove it “easily” enough.
