[200q20v] Rear Diff D-Shaft Seal?

A KISS corollary to my "Don't fix it if it ain't broke" philosphy is "Always
try the simple fix first".  I hate with a passion any and all oil leaks, and
in 30+ years of fighting same, I've learned that most rotary shaft seal
leakage can be eliminated/controled by the use of chemical seal restorer
products, seal replacement being unnecessary.

Add 1/2 can of engine seal restorer to the rear diff. and the other half to
the manual tranny and drive for 1K miles, gunk everything clean and check
again for leaks.  A cost effective fix at $5.
