Cool Front differential oil leak

While under my Titan yesterday installing my JBA cat-back I noticed that there was an oil leak on my front differential where the drive shaft goes in from the T-case. Bummer!!! It is obvious that there is oil on the crossmember and was a drip on the differential itself. It looks like a bad seal, and I have never noticed any oil in the driveway where I park her. The good news is that my truck is still under warranty, so it looks like a trip to the dealer is coming soon.
I only have 24,000 miles and only put the truck in 4 wheel drive on occasions when necessary and don't abuse it. So, just a heads up to everyone else here who has a 4X4 Titan. You may want to check your front diff.
Has anyone else here had this problem?

Re: Front differential oil leak

Mine's leaking where the drain plug screws in. This has been a problem off and on for 4 mos. Dealer checked 4 mos ago and said they fixed the leak. Now I noticed its leaking again. I checked the level and it looks low. Anyone know what the proper fluid level should be?

Re: Front differential oil leak

I had noticed a couple oil spots on my garage floor so mentioned it when I went in for 30k service. Turned out it was the front diff input seal leaking. Service also noticed the right rear axle seal starting to leak. Service changed both under warretry, had a loaner Sentra for the night. Can't complain about the service but don't think the seals should have gone bad.
