Broken Diff

Hi, I am Angus, I have just joined the forum in the hope that someone can help. I have a 3.0l d sport X5 and the rear Diff has gone, given up the ghost, I am going to remove it tomorrow and try and get a replacement, I have never done anything like this before so any info or tips would be appreciated.

Mate, take your time, take lots and lots of reference pictures, and keep all your fasteners (nuts,bolts etc) organised. Zip lock bags and a permanent marker will be handy for you.

Make sure the vehicle is on jack stands (workshop stands) and well secured before getting under it. Under no circumstances get under the vehicle while it's up on a hydraulic jack.
