    Hi all, I could do with picking your brains. When my car went for an MOT the tester noticed an oil leak near the rear diff. The car has since been on another ramp and it appears the leak eminates from where the prop shaft and rear diff join.
    Has anybody had experience of this? Costly or easy fix. The guy that is going to look at it plans to remove the diff and open it up to find the problem.

    Many thanks in advance for the replies.

    TBH if the guy is removing & opening the unit, then leave with him, as he must known what he's doing to even do that, probably a seal.
