Diff Leak?

I was under my car tonight and noticed this.

I know the right side axle shaft is slightly bent from me being an idiot and sliding into a curb, but this is on the left side. Weird.

I'm still under warranty. Wonder what they'll say?

That's normal due to how the little valve on top of the left axle tube is designed. I believe there is a TSB out that has them replace it with type of breather. It's supposed to make less of a mess I guess.

I had mine get progressively worse before I just did my gears and rebuild.

An axle bearing and seal were starting to go. Caused a whirring scratching noise as well. Keep in mind my car has 60k miles though. That's right on the dot of when those bearings and seals should be replaced.

Oh sweet!

That's a relief.

I saw that valve up there, but I didn't know it was a valve when I was looking at it.
