I took my van in for an oil change and somehow the fluid leaked out of the front diferential and it fried. How do I change it and put in a new one? Or can it be fixed another way?
Thank You,
Bob

Replacing the entire differential is a major repair. I recommend getting a good repair manual that has step by step instructions with pictures to help identify parts. For me to try to explaine it via the internet allows too much room for error.

As far as repairing it, can you describe what it is doing? Also, do you know where it leaked from.
