Default The damage

This is what happens when a gear lets go in a differential

The case all put back together (whats left of it)


The hole the gear made shooting through


This is what happens when the shaft and gear have no lubrication

Phew! I hope that never happens to me! Hopefully the damage to the pocket book was a lot less severe.

Speaking of which did you get satisfaction with the transmission shop, how did it go?

Roomate last year busted one on this sc miata. We took it apart and put the new one in. Those things do tear up a lot when they go.
