Sud gearbox vent
« on: March 04, 2019, 07:52:46 PM »
I've been driving my sud for the best part of a year, and just recently i've developed a gearbox leak. It appears to be coming from the very top at the rear of the box, right near the breather. Is this a common problem?

 Ive noticed it on my last two drives, the weather was very hot. Also, I have a very steep driveway and was thinking the fluid may splash out the vent a little each time I drive back up. Anyone experienced this?

Mine leaked out there after it had been overfilled with oil.

Thanks Amichie,

I levelled the car, opened the fill port and a little fluid came out. Hasn’t seemed to leak since. Love it when its an easy fix.
