2006 Solstice diff leak
Hello all- I just purchased a 2006 NA with 2800 original miles. Just noticed the dreaded diff pinion seal drip on the floor. I've read ton of the threads regarding this issue. However , I don't have the time to read them all to find my answers. So, to expedite, could someone give me a brief, updated summary for my questions?
I understand the fix is a revised seal, pinion yoke and nut. Is this still available? If so a part number please and a recommended source for the parts? Mine is a limited slip diff. Any special tools needed? In my 64 years, I've owned many sports cars(63 e-type, , Corvettes,still have my 57 MGA), but I really like this Solstice.. I have contacted a local GM dealer, but they have never serviced a Solstice..the parts manager asked me if it was an SUV..that scares me. Even though this was a mandatory recall from GM, I am still responsible for all costs?
Thanks in advance.
The knowledge of and passion for these cars on this site is amazing!
All the best,
