XWD differential oil leak.
« on: 24 December 2021, 02:05:48 PM »
Car went into the garage today and once on the lift, it was clear that the seal on the rear LH drive shaft had failed.

Plan is to remove and inspect the seal.  if it's cracked it will be replaced.  If there are signs of damage, the diff will be removed and repaired.

And the fuel tank needs some rust treatment.

We have the car back.  Just a new seal fitted. No other sign of damage.  Will monitor.
