What kind of car is this on? If I assume it's something with a gear diff, I would say it sounds like a damaged gear or possibly something jammed in there. You'll have to open it up either way.

Who would get confused with a diff and a servo and what makes you think diffs can't be turned both ways? Wow.

Anyway, like the first reply stated, if this is a gear diff it sounds like a damaged gear (mangled tooth or something wedged between 2 teeth). Now with all that said, I've had drive shaft pins start to come out that would hit the underside of the hub and make things stop. Initially I thought it was something in the diff.

Open your diff case and check that you arent missing any teeth on the diff. If you have recently rebuilt the diff, it might be a little notchy (high spot) and you may need to remove some shims.

I have had a bent DS cause a similiar problem as it would bind as it rotated.

No need to upload pics if you can see there is a gear bent. Get a new one. You may be able to buy just that gear or there may be a rebuild kit that has the whole gear set in it.

Most of us knew what you meant.
