Rear Diff Clutch Packs

I know this should be in the driveline thread, but it don't seem to get as much action.

My truck ran out of drivetrain warranty @ 100KM. I took it to the dealer @ 100 958KMS because my clutch packs were acting up. They said nothing was wrong. It took me 2 1/2 weeks to get back up there, I was busy with work. Once I had time I got the truck back to them with my 35ft holliday trailer @ 102 521KMs, I let the shop foreman drive. We didn't even get out of the parking lot and he said yes the clutch packs are wore out. Took it in today and they won't fix it under warranty. I bought the truck used with 89 000kms, the dealer want my service records. I don't blame the dealer, I know it isn't my fault that the packs are shot. I am hoping ford motor company will help me out. I spoke to the service manager, then called the owner. Tomorrow I am calling Ford Canada. I have had 2 dodges over the last 6 years, I have had similar issues and Chrysler always fixed it for me.

My question is this, being 600 miles, 1000 kms past warranty most dealers make this happen under warranty right?

I believe that most would work with you seeing as you only 600 miles out.

Spoke to FORD CANADA today, they will not bend the rules to help a guy at all. I was hoping they would go 1/2ers with me or something, they are not helping me at all. But I guess it is what it is.

I need to get more info, I am thinking about getting a locker so I never have this issue again.

Sinner, if I don't repair this ASAP will it cause more damage, or will it just continue to chatter?

if it's chattering you could try adding some more friction modifier to the rear axle

I just changed fluid in Apr. 2011. I used Lucas 75w-140 with 1 bottle of friction additive. I was planning on doing another bottle of additive until I get everything priced out and know which locker I choose to go with.

You will always have issues with 7.5 if you have any power! Build an 8.8! I have sprayed on slicks with an 8.8 rear.

Sorry, back on topic.
