Rear Diff. blowup

Recommended Posts

Not 100% clear on this yet but a friend of mine who also owns a T2 had his rear end go out on him the other day. He tore it down and found what looked like one of the bolts that hold the ring gear on had backed out and caused the pinion and ring gear to lock up and striped some of teeth off. He is still in the evaluation process and is in touch with Joyner. I will update as soon as I learn more. :(

If you need help, let me know.

I think differential info will become important and interesting.

He said that also so thats why im not 100% sure as to what happened. I will see him at work tonight an hope I can get a little better understanding. I am on graveyards so it takes my brain a little longer to compute things :blink:

New update on rear diff. My friend said that the bolt holding on the ring gear did not back out but actualy busted off in the middle of the bolt and the threaded end went out the back side. The bolt head with retaining wire was still in the ring gear. He has some pictures and as soon as I get them I will download onto the trooperfolk webshots. He said that Joyner is working with him on the investigation to see who is going to replace the diff.

Sounds like a defective bolt or the bolt was over-torqued. Great to hear there was not any problems with the safety wire, silver lining!

How long has he had his T2? Is it still under warranty

We both took delivery of our T2's last spring. So no, the warrant was up a long time ago. It was determined that the bolt had to be faulty and Joyner was great about making it right.

exile, welcome to UTV Boards & sorry to hear that. I found this for you from Jeff at No Limits Powersports. It's the factory replacement but it has been checked for proper spacing & gear load. Price $925. You might get it cheaper from Joyner but at least you know this has had the once over inside. http://www.shop.nolimitspowersports.com/pr...p;productId=144

Cheers Mike.

My rear dif has had a clunking noise and my locker wasn't working. Finally get around to tearing it down and all the bolts holding on the ring gear are pulling out. The ring gear would rock back and forth. All the bolts had safety wire or I am sure one would have fallen out and caused big trouble.

All the bolts are soft I will be replacing them with harder ones on Monday and lock tight instead of safety wire. Has anyone else run into this problem?

I think this is a known problem by Joyner. My dealer called me up out of the blue one day and wanted to know my diffs serial number. He has seen this same thing twice and is trying to be proactive about the problem. This may or may not help but I'd give Joyner a ring and see what they can do for you.

Do you have to take your cv out to check your diff. if yes how do they come out is there a book or something to show you how

The whole axle comes off of the rear end. The rear dif has stub shafts that the axle slips on to I just took a long pry bar and they popped right off.

Sound Like I have the same problem, all the bolts are sheared, the safety wire is strewn through out the diff and the inside is broken.

If I don't get one via warranty, any one know of any others, or have any ideas that might help?

Don't think I'll be going anywhere for some time.$$$$$$ :blink::(

The same thing happened to me but I heard the slop in the ring gear and no harm was done. I have also called Joyner and am waiting for a reply.

      Hello everyone,
      I am a mechanical engineering student who is trying to design a UTV to be used by maintenance workers around parks and university campuses. One of our unique selling points was that the rear cargo area would be modular so it can be swapped out for different "rear modules". For example, it could just be cargo hold but also a cage, refrigeration, more passenger seats or carrying woodchip etc.
      What would be an easy way of detaching the different rear modules and swapping with a new one? A way of securing it to the frame but also allowing it to be removed with ease. From what I've seen, most UTV bodies are directly bolted to the frame.
      Thank you for reading.

      HELP - my wife and i just bought a 2013 joyner trooper 1100 and we rode for 2 evenings with no problems. Went to ride last night and all of a sudden it acted like something was catching up and it didn't want to move easily. Whatever it was must've broke and now it moves with no problem but is making a rubbing/grinding noise somewhere in the backend. Could it be wheel bearing, differential, or something in cv shaft. Any info or similar experiences is appreciated.

      I recently purchased a used 2008 Ruesch XR.  The Pinyon is gone in the rear differential and the differential needs to be rebuilt or replaced. Does anyone know where you can find Ruesch parts?
