YOUR PROBLEM IS NOT STATED ON THE SITE. THERE ARE ONLY A FEW PLACES FOR THE DIFFERENTIAL TO LEAK FROM. THE FRONT PINION SEAL. THE COVER PLATE AT THE REAR IF SO EQUIPPED OR THE VENT AT THE TOP OF THE HOUSING USUALLY LOCATED ON OR NEAR ONE OF THE AXLE TUBES. OR, THE ENDS OF THE AXLE TUBES. OR, THE FILL PLUG. IF YOU CAN STATE YOUR COMPLETE PROBLEM I CAN BE A LITTLE MORE SPECIFIC.

Its leaking gear oil


Leaks on the rear differentual can usually occur at 3 places the axle housing,or at the axel shaft oil seals.If it were to be the axel housing gasket it would be visible around the housing cover.Also inspect the axel housing slip yoke seal this will also be visible.The next seals you want to check would be the axel shaft seals.In order to get to these seals you will have pull the tires and drums.Once you have them off take a flashlight and look behind the axel end for any oil leaking.Those would be the only places it would leak oil.

How to remove rear axle 03 chevy silverado


You will have to remove the rear end plate off of the back of the rear end. Then turn the carrier untill you see a big silver pin that goes through the spider gears. Those will be 4 small gears in the rear end carrier. If you look at the right side of the carrier were the pin goes through it you will see a small bolt head, That bolt goes through the carrier and holds the pin in place. Remove that bolt then reach up in the rear end housing and push the pin towards you untill it comes out. ( DO NOT TURN ANYTHING AFTER YOU REMOVE THE PIN) are the spider gears will fall out.


Now get someone to push the axel in while you are looking at the 4 small gears in the housing, when they push the axel in a C-clip will fall off the end of the axel and into the rear end, You will see it fall out. Then just pull the axel out.



When you put the axel back in, push it all the way in then slide the c-clip over the end of the axel and then pull out on axel and that will hold the clip in place untill you put the big long pin back in the carrier. I hope you understand, just watch what you are doing. GOOD LUCK.

Oil leak around oil filter


Are you positive the leak is coming from the filter?
It could be coming from above it, perhaps the valve cover which is common. Take a look.
Post what engine you have also, the more info offered the better chance someone can help with a problem.
