What is e diff on Range Rover?

2016 Range Rover The Active differential control (E-diff) improves traction on uneven road surfaces. Not all vehicles are supplied with an Active differential control (E-diff). The vehicle can still be driven, but seek qualified assistance as soon as possible.

What does e diff mean?

Active differential control
On 5.0L Supercharged vehicles, the Active differential control (E-diff) improves traction on uneven road surfaces and can also improve stability in oversteer situations.

Does Range Rover Sport have locking diff?

All Range Rover models (1989 onwards) do not have the option to lock the centre differential. The reason is that Land Rover fitted a device known as a viscous coupling to these models and it works automatically when the vehicle sensors detect loss of grip on one axle.

What is defender electronic Active differential?

Electronic Active Differential This system offers the additional benefit of more traction on corners and more grip off-road. It does so by controlling the slip between the left and right wheels on the rear axle.

How does e Diff work?

When cornering, the inner and outer wheels rotate at different speeds, because the inner wheels describe a smaller turning radius. The electronic differential uses the steering wheel command signal and the motor speed signals to control the power to each wheel so that all wheels are supplied with the torque they need.

What is a diff car?

In simple terms, a diff uses specialised gears that allow two wheels, connected to the same axle, turn at different speeds. When you turn a corner, the outside wheel needs to turn faster than the inside one as it has a greater distance to cover. This is where the differential, or car diff, comes in.

Does Land Rover Defender have diff lock?

Your Land Rover has three diffs; one in each axle, one in the transfer box. It’s only this last one that locks: if you want to lock the others you can buy an aftermarket diff lock, ARB and KAM being the most common types. The centre diff allows varying torque to be transmitted to the front and rear axles.

Does the new Defender have diff lock?

The Defender is missing a locking front differential and instead relies on a brake-based electronic “differential” that automatically grabs the brake of a spinning wheel to force power to the wheel with traction.

How do I know if I have diff lockers?

If you jack up just one rear wheel and it spins freely, then it’s an open differential. If you jack up just one rear wheel and it does not spin freely, then it is some sort of locking or limited slip differential.

Can you mix diffs from Range Rover and discovery?

No you can’t mix diffs from them as they’re physically different to the Rover axles. As for the original post, if it’s a Range Rover, Defender or Discovery diff then it will be 3.54:1, I would think a Series one would be obviously different next to a coiler one as the ratios are different.

Where can I get Land Rover diffs rebuilt?

At NG Driveline we specialise in only reconditioning Land Rover differentials and steering boxes using genuine parts and specialist tools finishing the units to the very highest standard. We have had over 20 years of experience rebuilding diffs and steering boxes on a daily basis.

What kind of differential does a Land Rover have?

The differential in question was designed by the Salisbury Axle Company, which was purchased by Spicer in the 1918. Spicer became Dana in 1946. The “salisbury” axle used in Rovers have a Dana Model 60 differential. The axle assemblies are built by GKN which has many close ties with Dana.
