Long story short. I have a 2012 outlander 1000. Rearend starting making noise around 1000 miles. Full of metal and pinion gear coming apart. So bought a new one online from a can am dealer in TX. Put it on double checking everthing. IM a ford tech by trade and been working on 4 wheelers forever. Soon as i put it on notice its very noisy . Humming bad. louder the fast you go. I finally got pulled it apart again and drained the oil and the metalic in the oil bad. From what ive rear this is a reoccuring problem with the can am rear end. Would it even be worth it to call can am? Im not to happy about a brand new 800 part messed up from the factory. Ive bought can am since 07 and lover their product but me eating this rear diff is not something that i should be doing in my opinion. WHats yall take on this?

I would start by calling the place you bought it and see if you get any action. If they won't warranty it, then go up the chain.

Yea i called them today right after i put this up. And just as i suspected they are not going to help at all. They said its been too long. ANd a "certified tech" didnt put it on. WHich i understand because i am a certified ford tech. But when you buy something from ford no matter what it is it has a factory warranty on that part. If i would be dropping this in a mud hole with 30 inch tires i would have a different outlook on this situation. because i dont i have stock tires since new and strickly trail ride and hunt with this atv. Guess its time for me to call can am customer service?

Good luck man, hope you get some resolve, but be prepared for a let down. At least see if canam will look into the dealer that probibly sold you a bad part they paid the dealer to waranty on someone else's machine in the first place.
