  • Axle Vent Hose (Dana 30 front)

    Okay, here is the problem. The little plastic fitting that goes in the vent hole and then attachs to the hose must be getting weaker as it has a tendency to come out of the hole. Anybody have any tricks for keeping it in, or is buying a new one the only option??

      Check the Help! section. Probably be able to find one for not much $$ if it bothers you that much.

        You want to deal with that soon. It can be purchased at the dealer fairly cheap or call Jeepsareus. If water gets inside your differential, it can cause some serious damage and become very costly. I'd handle it quickly one way or another. Does the connector have threads where it goes into the differential or does it just press in. I thought it was threaded, but I'm not sure.

        A guy with an XJ went wheelin' with us in some high water and once the weather turned cold the water inside his differential froze causing severe vibration in the rear end. He couldn't fiqure it out until he pulled the differential cover and it looked like gray swamp mud inside. It smelled worse than swamp mud.

        Good Luck
