So I brought my 2006 300C with 73,000 miles to the chrysler dealership 2 weeks ago for a oil change and the say the rear dif is leaking, so I bring it in the next week to get checked. After 40 min they come back and say its leaking so bad and that theres no parts to fix it and that I need a new axel(1600$). Anyone else ever here about this happen?? I'm going to get a second and third opinion cause I had it in there in june for a oil change and they didnt say anything and I had it stored for 3 months till I decided to get winter tires and drive it year round so I can't believe its going out.

Not likely, in all likely hood this is actually the seal on the passenger side where the half shaft connects, it's a known problem and should be about $150 to replace both seals.

Yeah, I never heard of anyone have rear differential problems on these cars. If you were ALOT closer, you could have mine for waaaayyyy less than that.

When I had the Daytona I spotted a leak in the rear diff. Dealer was going to charge me $340 to replace both axle seals. When they got it on the lift to inspect it they found that it was actually leaking from the vent at the top of the diff. So, I had them do a rear diff service, spending $125 instead and having piece of mind that the fluid and seal was new.

I took my 2005 Chrysler 300 AWD to a mechanic because I felt some grabbing as I turned my wheel left or right and was going slow and either backing up or going forward. It has 124,000 miles on it. First I was told the pinion seal was leaking but later was told my rear differential was gone and I would need another one. Does any of this sound logical?

This thread is almost ten years old, and none of the original participants have been seen here in years.

If you're looking for someone to help with your question, you will probably have better luck by posting a new thread rather than trying to revive this long-dead one.
