    hey guys my diff centre or housing is starting to leak oil, i was just wondering what is the best way to fix this problem? I was thinking about taking it to the mechanics but was afraid i'd get flamed for having a welded diff. Also what would be the cause of the leak. Broken seal?

    Thanks
    David

    yeh most probably. just rip the diff out and take it to someone if you want to, or pull it apart yourself. not too hard. cant really mess anything up if you've never done it before just remember to use a sealer when putting the nose of it back on

    it's the standard paper gasket thats the problem, if the diff seal has ever been broken, you have to scrape it ALL off with a razor blade and put a new gasket on.

    i had the same issue, even with alot of gasket sealant, just had to make sure all the paper shit was off.
