Re: Leaking Axle Seal. . . how far can I drive?
Nope, no pics. . . . yet! It's an '05. 138k. Not too many problems since new, but this one fo'sure. It's just bad timing with the planned vacation. Don't know what to do.
One thought, since the axle vent becoming clogged seems to be the root cause of this issue, would it help to take the little metal cap off the vent? I took it off to see what is going on down there. Under the cap is a light spring and a round flat piece of soft plastic (almost rubber), like a penny, just smaller. The spring applies pressure against the plastic "penny" against the axle vent. Inside the vent, nothing. Stuck a small pick in there and nothing.
