Re: Final drive starting to leak
A few things...
First thing: you need to be more specific as to the leak. Is there oil at the FD drain plug, at the bellow? If at the bellow, have you moved the rubber out to determine if the oil was coming from the FD or from the transmission?
Second thing: I had a FD leak while at CCR in SD but there was no failure and just having the seals replaced took care of the problem. My LT is an 05.
Third thing: The weep hole has nothing to do with a final drive leaking. It is there to let out the brake/fluid from the slave cylinder in case of a leak. This is way forward from the final drive.
