Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Noticed grease on rear axle near wheel while under truck appears to be leak from axle seal. I will take the vehicle to the dealership for review and repair if necessary. I do not know how long this condition has existed, but could expect the leak to affect the braking ability.

Axle seal leak. Right rear seal. Fluid caused parking brake to slip slightly. Occurred at 37,000 miles on 2004 Nissan Titan 4X4. Dealer repaired and replaced under Nissan 60,000 mile power-train warranty. [forum members generally believe the rear axle breather element, (a one way check valve), creates a vacuum that sucks the seals, thereby creating the leak. Some even remove the element and install tubing into their tail light to alleviate the check valve and still prevent water intrusion into the differential/axle].
