Pinion seal leak, need advice

2006 CC, Big tow, axle vent mod, 47,000 miles total, 17,000 of the 47,000 towing Travel trailer.

My question is: Pinion seal is leaking. It leaked bad on time , now just a little. I am bring it to the dealer any advice, since it is only leaking a little now? and should I disconnect the axle vent mod?

I should add, that the first time it did it I added fluid because it was down 1/4 of an inch. I just checked it again and it was down 1/4 inch or so again, so I add some more fluid. It was never run low on fluid. It seems to leak more under a load while towing, if I had to guess.

Thanks !

You are in warranty, so let the dealer fix it.
I think it would be a good idea to remove your vent mod, even though it didn't have anything to do with the leak.

Depending on your dealer it may be a good idea to remove the mod before you take it in. With mine I discussed it with the shop manager and some of there senior techs and left them with the part numbers so they could do it for other owners.
