Re: Leaking fluid from front axle differential
Leaking fluid from the front axle is most probably coming from the diff seals. To change the seals in there you have to remove the diff from the housing. I have never done this, but the service manual mentiones a tool which stretches the housing a bit. Not sure if it can be done without this tool.
Switching from 4x4 to 4x2 will not help a lot, there should still be fluid in the diff to lubricate the parts.
