Hi All
I have had the smell of EP90 coming my Lse after use for the last couple of weeks,had time to look into this today and found the rear diff pan has gone pourus,
I know there is a replacement repair pan that you can get from Britpart,but how hard/easy is this to do?have any of you done this or is it best to take to a local specialist to have done?, I am not a welder which i understand this is how the repair works ,you cut off the back of the pan and weld on the new part,any advise would be a great help.

Hi there Mr Valve,

I'm guessing you're based in the UK somewhere?

My 1992 Vogue SE is doing exactly the same thing!! It's off to Steve Parker on Friday to have the old pan cut off and one of their nice heavy duty items welded on, can't wait, means I won't have to keep filling the diff every few days!! Not sure on the cost, I'll report back once the deed is done `)

My front was leaking, I fixed it with epoxy putty until I get it properly fixed. You defiantly have to weld in a replacement or a '' sewer cap'' for a proper fix. If your in a pinch try the epoxy putty or some JB weld for a temporary fix.

Check your axle vent. I had the same situation and with a clogged vent the diff oil will push out anywhere it can. I cleared the vent fitting and buttered some oil resistant gasket sealant over the wasted area of the diff casing and (knock on wood) it's been leak free for over 30K miles. Yeah.... I'm cheap... :oops:
