I had similar black gunk, like thin black treacle come out of my front
diff when I drained it a few weeks ago. The rear contained normal looking
oil.
I did wonder if the diff oil had got contaminated with swivel grease which
I think would indicate a knackered axle oil seal. Any thoughts anyone.
Get a blowtorch on the refil / drain nut housings to try and loosen
them... BUT make sure you can get the refil plug out BEFORE you drain the
oil!! It's a pig if you drain it and then find you can't get any oil back
in! :)
