My "driveway floor" inspection has let me identify a small leak in the differential. It looks like one of the seals where the axle go onto the housing; right hand side, I think. 350 miles.....
Anyone else have a similar problem? Do the dealers even have parts available for these things yet....or will they just put in a new differential? Maybe I should wait to see if they revise the differential to fix the clunk....as suggested in the Robert N's note on the FAQ????
(this note was pasted from the roadfly board; seems to have gotten quiet over there.....)
Take it in and let them fix it... you have now publicly acknowledged that you have seen oil leaking. I don't expect an immediate change for the clunk... otherwise Vipers and F-bodies wouldn't have a clunk.
Thanks for the legal advice...though I was looking for something more of the technical nature. But, in case you are an EPA inspector or if the EPA is monitoring this board, rest assured that I am taking reasonable steps to control and correct this potential environmental hazard.
Unfortunately, after a more detailed inspection up on the rhino ramps, it seems clearly the right side axle seal. Housing gaskets and drain'fill plugs all seem sound, as does the front seal. I was hoping to avoid taking it in and having the shop drop the exhaust and tear everything apart....such is life.
I didn't realize that the V has a getrag rear till I saw the name on the housing....
