Rear Axle seal issue.....

I(mainly my mechanic) noticed what looks like the start of a seal failure of the rear axle seal. See attached photo....I did my best to capture it.

Question....is this something that should be dealt with immediately?

I'm already having a number of things done and was thinking of saving this for a future visit if it isn't completely dire.

Thanks,

BB

Re: Rear Axle seal issue.....

I think I see metal shavings? If so, yes! Get it checked out ASAP. It looks like you have a semi-float axle? A common reason for a leaky seal is play from either bad bearings, or sometimes even a worn axle shaft. Even if everything else is fine, it'll still end up oiling your parking brake shoes.
