are you sure its the axle seals and not the CV grease breaking down and leaking out? After about 100000k's the grease starts to thin out and looks just like diff oil.

Give it a good degrease and steam clean then check again. I thought same as you on mine, turned out CV's needed repacking.

jon,

Interesting yours has gone.
I also have a 2005 model and my right front went last weekend however I'm getting my mechanic to do the job as the front locker also needs fixing.
As said about LCOOL.

Thanks for the information, it is the seal leaking as the c/v boot is dry and a few inches away so I will clean it up and see how much it leaks.
