I had the diff clutch replaced by Ford at 21000, 34000 and now at 77000. These are in kms so they work back to 13125 miles, 21,250 and 48,125 miles. It is a 2011 F150 XTR 4x4, 5.3l. I would like to know if there is something that I could be doing to extend the life of this part. Ford has been good at replaceing it without charge, but it is a real annoying problem.
