    Three weeks since the last post here, may be over and done with, but IMHO, BridggetAnn was given some very good information; Hopefully she & hubby sat back, sorted it out, then chose the best route of action. Another point, and while I'm offering this with gritted teeth, sometimes it's a "necessary evil"; regardless of whom is at fault.
    FILE A LAWSUIT!!!!!!
    (1) To indicate you're serious about this, not going to be blown off.
    (2) Many times the "deep pocket" companys find it cheaper to settle out of court, leaving the high dollar lawyers in their office twiddling thumbs.

    Losing all the oil out of a diff. would make a mess. You would see evidence of oil blowing onto the frame, the rear diff.,inside sidewalls of the tires, etc. NO WAY you lost all that oil without it showing up somewhere. Who ever changed the seals forgot to refill the diff. period.

    Should be 10 hours labor. If he is a $180/hr. mechanic he has the skill and know how to do the job in 4 hours....,.,,.
