Cracked Differential

1352 Views 16 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  THawk15
Parked my 2015 TH after a short highway trip and noticed oil on the back of the tailgate. I crawled underneath the vehicle and discovered that the front of the rear differential was cracked. I have never driven this vehicle off road. Does anyone know if I can replace just the front portion of the differential? There are bolts so it seems like it can be removed. I’ve attached pictures.
Thanks for your help!

OMG! Steel case cracked right through! . . .
Use a magnet, the housing is an aluminum cast. I've replaced mine twice. Time consuming so I had a dealer do it. Check my posts for a write-up.
