    Default 2.5 Front Diff spares, and specs needed

    The front diff on my 07 2.5 has worn on the carrier portion where one of the spider gears rotates.
    Causing the inner cv cup to rattle.

    We've stripped the diff and everything seems good except the carrier and the two small spider gears.
    The Carrier is worn on the side that takes the cv shaft directly into the diff, the drivers side.

    I'm wanting to replace that carrier and the spider gears but can't find parts. Have been told by some guys that the carrier and gears complete, used, should be about R1500. Perfect
    But when they eventually get back to me, they don't have just the carrier, and only want to sell diffs complete for around R8000. Thats not in my budget.
    Agents want R5000 just for the spider gears, pointless as the can't supply the carrier cage. And out of budget

    Does anyone know where I can source one, or have the parts that I can purchase?

    I'm hoping Oom DVR sees this and shares some of his infinite knowledge

    At the moment I'm just driving the vehicle without the front diff in

    A weird thing that confuses me a bit, is that when I enquired about the CV's a ford employee punched in the vin number and sent me a diagram of the diffs.
    One diff had the "side tube" thingie permanently fitted, listed as a manual transmission diff
    the other had a removable "side tube" thingie, listed as a auto transmission ( this is fitted to my 2.5wl)
    if I recall correctly only the 4lt V6 was available in SA in auto?
