Hello everyone! I recently just got access to a car lift of my own and I decided to lift my 2006 Range Rover into the air and take a look underneath. I discovered that everything looks to be in place and is dry except there seems to be a very slow but apparent leak coming from the rear diff. Ive done a little bit of research but can not seem to find what is going on. I have attached photos of the leak below. any help would be amazing as my solution for now is to just top it off every couple thousand miles. 20190301_204412.jpg 20190301_204432.jpg 20190301_204541.jpg

Looks like its coming from the driveshaft seal. But first thing would be to check and makes sure the vent is not plugged or closed off causing a build up of pressure.

Hello I was able to take the breather off and it was not clogged... what would be my next step to replacing that seal?

Well I guess the next step is replacing that seal. I read through the procedure and it does show a couple special tools but you could probably come up with substitutions to DIY. There is some careful marking and measurement to do but doesn't look terribly hard. But this job while laying on your back might not be very fun, much easier with a lift. I guess you decide if you want to take it on. Alternatively, if you take it to somebody, you shouldn't feel that a dealer trip is necessary. Nothing to out of the ordinary.

Do you have a link the the instructions (video would be great if possible) and part numbers for the seal?

Thank in advance!
