hi all got the half shaft seals fixed but still leaking could it be that the breather is blocked and there for pressure building up ?. if so how would you clean it and do you have to take the difff apart or can you get at it without it taking it apart
thanks guys

Try just replacing the hose and see how it goes.

Best to makesure its replaced. Sand inside a diff will chew it out in a wek or to.
The breather line goes into the cabin where it vents in the clean enviroment of under the back seat :)

For the price of a replacement bit of hose (i.e. cheap) I don't see any reason not to.

Fit new hose and check fitting on diff is clear....
You could fit a cheap fuel filter on the end. Having it up and under rear body help keep water out if going through flood etc...
