Usa Front differential issues. (Need help)

I have a 2012 570 trail. All stock except tires. So I kept hearing a clunking sound every so often. I got a chance to check it out, and the axle/cv joint has a lot of play on the passengers side where it goes into the demand drive. The drivers side feels normal with a minimal amount of play. The 4x4 engages when in AWD, but the axle seems like it is too loose inside the differential. If standing in front of the machine, this is a back and forth motion on it. I assume something went south as I found the drain plug loose when I went to do the first fluid change since I purchased it last year. I made sure the plug tight, and filled it to the correct hardly anything amount it requires (I think 6.7 ounces). It has about 10 miles of my own, and 1800 over all.
So my question is this. What is my best route. Rebuild the Demand drive myself, and what should the parts cost me, and is it fairly straight forward? Buy a rebuilt unit by someone who comes recommended, and the approximate cost, or buy a brand new factory unit, and approximate cost? Or even a good used one. Approximate price I should pay with similar, or less miles than my machine?
Looking for options because I do not want to get several hundred dollars into a DIY rebuild only to find out I do not have special tools, and or training, and have it cost me so much more than a professional rebuild, good used one or a new unit.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Front differential issues. (Need help)

I have seen bearing kits very reasonable and theres some informative videos on YouTube showing how to do it.

Thanks in advance for any advice
If you have a press and the spacers to properly remove and replace the bearings then go for it. If not, pay someone to do it.

Re: Front differential issues. (Need help)

I suspect the bearings would be fairly easy to remove with screwdrivers as prybars. I have a feeling they dont have a real tight interferance fit like a car or truck would have just because it's so small and the power transferred is a fraction of a car.

Re: Front differential issues. (Need help)

O they are on there lol, I did them before, and had to buy a small press from harbor freight. But all in all it was easy, but definitely need some sort of press

Re: Front differential issues. (Need help)

Thanks for the replies. I am looking at this kit. Anyone have any experience with it good or bad?

Re: Front differential issues. (Need help)

Looks to be a good kit. I would get a heavy duty armature plate though. They tend to cause problems if you go up in tire size
