Two days ago I noticed a smell that was kind of like burning plastic but not exactly. I was hoping that I just ran a bag over but after looking around a few times no luck.

I noticed some wetness on the passenger rear side of my rear differential. The smell seems to be focused at the rear of the car.

Would a leaking diff smell? I need to get this fixed, what am I looking at money wise, ballpark? Looks like a pita of a job. Anything else this smrll could be?

Should I run in fwd mode until I fix it or that wont make a difference as the differential will be moving anyways. Doesnt look easy to top off.

Point me in the right direction fellow members!

Rear diff leak

Mine leaked out of the right side seal. They are a challenge to get to so I took it to my local indy Volvo shop. total bill was around $450 being mostly labor:(

Did you notice this because of a smell or what? I appreciate the response and mine seems to be leaking from the same spot...

I need to find a local independent shop

Do we have a vent on top of our differential?
