Hello,

I just noticed a little bit of oil on my garage floor today nearer the rear wheels in the middle. What are the common seals in the back half of these cars that tend to leak and are they expensive jobs?

Thanks.

You have three seals at the centre of the rear end of the car. One is where the propeller shaft comes in and then you have one on each side for the outgoing drive shafts. Not that expensive to fix, but it will become expensive if the leak is substansial and you miss to top it up. ;)

Hi!
Is your car 3,6 or 3,8. In case it`s 3,8 with the EDC system, it could be the pressure regulator/hoses to dampers that leak. The regulator is above the diff so it can easily be misstaken for a diff-leak if the regulator leaks(done it myself)
