I am plannig on waiting till the 3000km free service until I tell the dealer cause I thought maybe it was just normal for a new diff. Any feedback on this would be appreciated
Mate it seems standard fare. I bought a series 2 demo XR6 N/A for one of my reps, it had 3200 klm on it and they put a new diff in it before it headed to Qld on the truck. If you tell them about it now they should have a new one waiting at the dealership when your 3000klm service is ready, apparently there is about a 1 month wait. Shame Ford can't find a better supplier considering the problem has been evident since the first batch of BAs rolled off the production line.
