Default HELP! This can't be good...
I noticed a few spots in the driveway today where I normally park the charger. Checked out the spots cuz the looked wet, never noticed them before but there are about 5 or 6 spots in the area. Checked under the rear end and sure enough, the rear diff is wet on the bottom. It doesn't look like it's coming from the half shafts. It was too f'ng cold & dark out by the time I got a chance to look under the car. Here are a few pics I got with the crackberry. Any suggestions?

Check your half-shaft seals. Pain to replace.....

Do you have the service manual for your ride???

Just got a quote from the stealership...$300 to do both seals. Is it worth it? I really don't have the time or a place to tackle this job right now.

Did they say it was the half shaft seals? Does that price include seals as well? Inorder to replace the seal, they have to drop the pumpkin (rear diff) to punch out the seals. Call me.

The guy I spoke with said it included parts & labor. I spoke with the parts dept and the seals are only $12.35 each so it's all labor. I don't have your #

Dealership checked it out yesterday & said the fluid was leaking out of the vent on top of the diff. They said it looked like someone had overfilled it. Not sure why it would only start leaking after 8k miles though. They recommended having them perform a rear diff service so I did. Haven't noticed any fluids yet but I've only had it back for less than a day. Keeping my fingers crossed...
