Add me to the club! I just had my diff fluid replaced 9 gays ago, on 2017
M3 ZCP at 49,800 miles, drove about 350 miles or so. Found some fluid on the floor of my garage. Took it to the dealer today. They have discovered my rear diff input shaft seal leaking. Off course, it's 150 miles out of warranty now. They have kept the car and trying to talk to BMW to see if they can help me with the cost. Otherwise it's $1,300 out of my pocket. 🤞hopefully BMW will step up, since I just had it in for service.

I'll try to add a picture in a bit.
I'll update you on the result as well.[IMG][/IMG]

Follow up as promised!

After taking my M3 to local dealer
"BMW of Bellevue" for the leaking seal problem as mentioned earlier,
BMW actually stepped up and fixed it under warranty, even though it was 150 miles over 50K! Huge thank you to BMW for saving me $1300, didn't expect them to cover 100%, and I am super thankful that they did! Way to go BMW!!! Thank you 👍!!

passenger side seal was replaced at the end of my factory warranty in 2019 at ~42,000 miles. Now the SAME seal is leaking again, BMW is saying that since the car was worked on under factory warranty, the parts warranty is only good until the end of the factory warranty. $900 job to replace it.

My dealer is pretty good normally with replacements- my SA is taking it up the chain to see if they can get it done for free or reduced cost.

Was just told by dealer that Right Differential Output shaft seeping and was told it would be $1730 to reseal both output shafts and get an alignment. The SA made it seem like I can just wait and see what happens during my next service date and said it didn't need to be fixed now. Any thoughts on that?
