i walk outside and lift my trunk... oddly, some water dripped into my trunk as i opened it... which has never happened before...

i left the trunk open & went inside for a minute... when i came back, i noticed a small puddle of (something) on the ground by the back left corner of the car, to the left of the muffler/exhaust tip...

pictures below...

Re: SHIT! is my differential leaking!?!

that does not look like diff. fluid... its in the wrong place and looks like water. Did you feel it? It would feel oily. whens the last time the car was washed? actually,we had all that rain yesterday... was it outside? Might just have been some water in between the weather seal trim and the edge of the rear 1/4 panel that finally dripped down

Smell the liquid and if it smells pretty funky, then it's the gear lube, otherwise if it's odourless you're fine. The actual differential is closer to the center and right between the two wheels!

immediately after i posted the thread & went back out to smell it & accidently bopped my nose on the driveway.... for the record, ouch, and it was water, not diff. fluid.


tasting it? sorry





FOR THE RECORD
