Long story short, I need an answer to what would happen if the rear differential failed on a car.
I won't go into details, but somehow the car lost it going out of a roundabout and as far as I know, it spun with no excessive speed at all, and I really don't know how it happened. Could have a rear differential failing in some way have caused the rear wheels to loose traction, but I distinctively remember hearing something at the rear.
The car also spun the wheels or something when it did a right hand turn off a main road onto another. I dismissed it as it was wet, but now I'm just convinced that something is wrong with the car.
I'm just so confused to how it could happen. If it wasn't the rear differential, what could it be?
EDIT: Can't be the differential.
