There should be a vent line and they are also on the F150 Series too. On the F150 and probably your F250 series the vent pipe goes through a rear Brake hose as Ford used the vent pipe to mount and secure the rear main Brake hose. The feeder lines go to each rear wheel.

The vent pipe allows the oil to flow through the ends of the axle shafts more easily and to eliminate any pressure from heat in the Differential. The vent hose keeps water from entering the axle by moving the opening higher in the frame. There is a threaded hole on the axle.

If your vehicle was built with larger rims (Fire truck?) there may be a vent button on the axle at that position. It would be a fitting with a small dome button if Ford felt the truck was high enough off the ground that water was not a problem.

I recently found a hose hanging down from my rear axle on drivers side. it's attatched to the axle but can't see where the other half goes. please help?


It is probably just a "breather" hose. It allows for air to escape as the differential gets hot during normal use. It just needs to be UP so water and debris does not get in it. There is probably a clip above the axle where it is supposed to be held. If you cannot find the clip, you can use a tie strap or something similar, to secure the hose in a position that is a high as you can make it.
