Differntial fluid diahrea

I have a nice leak taking place on my right rear on the inside of the tire. Could this be the gasket?

My first project!

Could be. Start by cleaning out the breather.

Roger thanks, just read about the breather via search. Bit of a noob here.

Or your hub seal. Start with the breather though, its easier.

You can take breather off the banjo bolt or better yet to take the banjo off with he breather to make sure the line is entirely clear. You should have two copper washers on the banjo bolt so don't loose them.... I would also check the diff fluid level as it may be low after the leak. After cleaning everything up and you still have a leak you can start looking at the hub and the hub seals. If you do not have a workshop manual you can do a search and find some on the web. This will give you all of the information you need to help search out the problem.

Well I did both breathers. Front was as clean as all can be, but the back (where the leak is on the right inner tire) was essentially full of it.

I changed the dif fluid in the rear and will do the front Thursday. Good fun. Thanks for the info/
