Thankfully, your car's differential doesn't need to be replaced very often (if ever). It chugs along mile after mile without a lot of drama. Maybe that's why the inner workings of a differential are a big mystery to a lot of people (myself included). If you've ever wondered how a differential works, you gotta check out this video tutorial.
