I have the 06 and now wonder if the leak is normal for this quirky car??willsctsv said:Join the club!
Been leaking since 500 miles on my new rear. Just a few drops from time to time.. This first rear did the samething, but died at 3K. Now theres 10K the on new one. I am waiting for this one to die, then maybe I will get the newer 06 rear. They say it's stronger.
I hav'nt downshifted yet as i break in the car i have kept to lower RPM just to be safe. I have to think this is a screw not tightened or something simple...i have 700 miles now.DaveBlk said:Many people on the forum have had repeated rear end problems .. others have none . It seams certain guys have had a lot and also guys with the maggie.. Maybe i know nothin but one cause we find in our shop is guys who downshit to to low a gear and do it alot usually buy a lot of diffs Just a thought !!!!
I feel your pain...Ryan's '05-V said:I'm rather pissed because after I had my diff replaced I noticed a leak. The dealer said a seal is pretty typical. I had my right real seal replaced 3,000 miles and 3 months ago. Ever since then it has been whining. It started leaking a few weeks ago I think.
I told the dealer I am low on coolant again and it whines bad in 5th upon accel from 62-65. They replaced my water pump and stat for the coolant problem and teh TSB mentioned a whining noise. They claimed the couldn't hear any whining. Well, they never put on the RO about a whine in 5th on accel from 62-65 and they added a 1,000 miles to what I really have. They just seem to screw things up left and right and I guess I am too lazy to try another dealer. I'm waiting for mine to break unless I have another good reason to bring it in. I only have a B&B exhaust.
This rear obviously sucks and my dealer needs a bit of help too. I told my service mgr about this site and I hope he reads this. I doubt it since he didn't have the courtesy to reply to an e-mail note I sent him months ago. He doesn't seem too computer savy.
Sorry to vent but get used to it, the rears suck and any leak is not right. I say take it back at least for them to look at it before they blame it on your abuse.
