    Anyone have a trick for checking oil in the axle with auto inflation caps that can't be seen through ?
    Mine have turned a mucky brown color on one and just black on the rest. I've tried a very bright light , even shining into thé fill hole.
    I really don't want to take the glass off unless have to. I suspect it would not seal back up and no one open to buy a seal from

    No. They leak when a seal goes bad. They have a sight glass and a plug on top of the cap to unscrew . The cap sight glass is removable. A bunch of little screws . Can't see through the things and they are only 2 years old. 2021 timpte. Mine are not leaking but that one with a tan color in it worked me.
    Looks like this but different brand . Notice the fill plug behind that air line.
