Question about 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe
I have a 2007 Chev. Tahoe with 54,000 miles. I have recently had a grinding in the frontend and took it to my local dealership. Dealership said water was in the front differential and needs to be replaced or rebuilt (approximately $2400). Dealership said only way this could have happened is for the vehicle to have been in two to three feet of water and are refusing to apply the warranty for the repairs. I am the only one who has driven the vehicle and it has never been in six inches of water, let alone two to three feet. Ever heard of similar issue?
It is a 2007 vehicle so there would be no warranty on the diff
as for the cost , replacement diffs from wreckers. junk yards with the same ratio would be less that 1/2 that so I think that you are being touched in the wallet area or get a fully rebuilt diff from an accredited diff and transmission specialist shop

SOURCE: Water in front differential
The dealership is trying to get out pf paying for the problem. I'm not going to say this is a common problem but it does seem to happen a lot. The axle seals leak quite frequently also the pinion seal leaks.There might be also be a problem with the vent, the hose could have came loose or hole in it. There is also an oring seal around the filler hole that may not have been installed properly.
If the dealership fails to help you call the GM customer assistance center and lodge a complaint. Chevrolet Customer Assistance Center 1-800-222-1020
