rear end leaking?

My rear end pumpkin looks like it is leaking fluid in some places yet when you touch it it is a black dust substance and not liquid or wet. what is this?

It could be the rear pinion seal. Anyone else have any ideas?

I read a plugged vent line could cause the seal to blow, i will check.

is this a common problem?

It can be, basically if the vent tube clogs, it builds up pressure and can force the oil out around the seals. Something has to give.

OK I think my vent is clogged, When i blow into the tube it comes right back out with a Poof. The vent hooks to a block which appears to have the brake lines running thru it, if I remove the vent nipple it will not mess up the brakes, correct?

The rear vent tube should have no correlation to the brake lines. You should be able to clean the vent line without affecting the breaks.

That is the pinion seal.
