A very distinct puddle under the 3rd member. Mine had apparently last night because I checked when I got back from dealer ad there was a small puddle. I happened to glance under Serenity when I was leaving Waffle House and noticed a 6-8 inch puddle, I hoped it was someone else's but I knew it was to fresh to be that. I drove approx 1 mile to dealer, parked on service apron, witihin 2 minutes a 10-12 inch puddle had formed. Backed up so service tech could check, definitley rear end oil. Was dripping small puddles as I moved forward again.

Oh man...sorry to hear this. Was really hoping that GM had resolved this problem since reading that so many of the Sols were plagued with this. I hope yours turns out to be an isolated incident. Are they going to replace just the seals or the entire carrier?

Just wondering if I am the first SKY owner to have this rear seal leak?:banghead:
Yes, I have a leak and first thought I had the same LSD seal leak the Sol owners had, but it wasn't.

Was at the dealer last week (June 1st) to have the "valve" on top of the differential changed, since it was allowing fluid out rather than just air in.

This AM, notice oil AGAIN on my garage floor under the SKY's rear end after driving it to dinner last night. Not as much, but still a fresh leak. Told dealer I would keep an eye and see if it continues. They wiped up all the residue oil so should not be that, plus I drove it 500+ miles over the weekend on a trip.

I would watch it real close because mine came on fast. I saw the seal leak while it was up on the lift. My dealer went right for the jugglar vein so to speak. Since our VINN's are so close, makes me wonder if there may have been a bad lot installed. Keep me informed.
