Was changing the oil on "Tina" the other day and as usual I do an inspection while I'm under the car, perk of working in a quick lube joint.
Anyway, I got to the rear diff and see oil I was like great, seems to be coming from the drivers side output seal. "Tina" is a Chrysler Certified 200c so took her in this morning and they confirmed the leaking seal and that it's covered however the cv shaft is NOT covered, trying to wrap my head around that. They said sometimes they get hung up and the have to cut them out. which if they have to do that will cost me 46 $ extra not to bad but still one would think that would be covered under the powertrain warranty. Regardless she's getting fixed hopefully by tomorrow before I have to leave for the weekend.

I was surprised to learn I also have rental coverage under the warranty for 1 day and up to 5 days if it's a covered repair. I was expecting to have to uber/lyft for the day. They gave me '15 200 Limited to drive man, coming from a loaded 200c to this thing was like whoa no auto climate control no auto wipers no heated wheel or seats. Took me like 5 min to figure out how to work the climate controls lol miss my 8.4 screen for sure.

The driveshaft and halfshafts are 100% covered under the powertrain warranty. I just had to replaced for free on my 2015 AWD s.
Just look up the warranty coverage.

Holy crap! I had no idea they needed to pull the whole ass end out to change the output seal on the differential on "Tina" You can see the dark area circled which would be the drivers side output seal leaking. Thank God I sprung for a Certified 200c only need to pay $100.0.deductible.

Yikes! I hope they didn't leave the rear halfshafts hanging unsupported like that with the outer CV joints still in the hubs.
Make sure that there are no scratches or dings on the axle joint seal contact surfaces that may harm the new seal.

Will do I'm about as anal as one can get when it comes to someone else working on my vehicles I prefer to to it myself that way I know whats what. But this be covered under warranty. Believe me I'll be paying attention to every sound vibration shimmy what have you lol that's alot of disassembly to change a **** seal.
