axle lube I had a similar problem with both sides of the rear axle on my '97. The fluid coated both parking brake pads. There is a small vent tube that comes out of the top of the differential. Wasps had filled the top end with mud and every time the axle heated up oil was pushed out of the seals. Disconnect the tube from the differential, insert an air compressor nozzle and blow out the tube. I had to replace both parking brakes and the seals.

The cause can be traced to a few things. Number one the master cylinder may have failed. Number two you could be low of brake fluid or have none at all due to a leak or broken brake hose.

Whatever the cause do not drive this car into you have the brakes repaired.
