Gear Oil Leaking from Rear Differential Cover – 2015 Subaru WRX STI

NUMBER: 03-74-14
DATE: 08/18/14

 

APPLICABILITY: 2015 WRX STI
SUBJECT: Gear Oil Leaking from Rear Differential Cover

 

INTRODUCTION

This bulletin provides a repair procedure to address a customer concern of a gear oil leak from the rear differential cover area.  As with any diagnosis, begin by confirming the source of the leak.  This will involve thoroughly cleaning the contaminated surfaces of all residual gear oil and the application of a suitable leak tracing developer such as Castle Leak Tracer Powder or similar.  If the source of the leak is confirmed as the breather vent assembly which is pressed into the aluminum rear differential cover, both the cover and the breather vent will require replacement.  In some cases, you may find the breather vent is visibly not fully or evenly seated while in others, it may appear flush.  Proper seating of the breather vent is not the criteria for replacement of the vent and cover.  Rely on the results of your leak tracing to determine what repair is required.  While this bulletin addresses a specific possible leak source, if your diagnosis leads to a different source, repair that condition by following the applicable Service Manual information.
