    Does anyone know where I can get replacement thrust washers for my differential planetary gears? Mine are 0.047" and they need to be 0.050" to get back to tolerance.

    Thanks guys.

    And just to add, I called Atkins on the bank holiday Monday, I told them I need the axle done and back for fitting ready for tomorrow. Mrs dropped it off Tuesday mid day, it was ready Thursday morning and the new collected it shortly after. So the job was done in stupid quick time for me. Can't ask for more than that!!

    I've spoken with many people about this today and it's not looking good.
