Weeping Rear Diff

Just had my rear diff done a few months ago before I took the car abroad..
It was weeping but the diff cover was the only rusty thing on the undercarriage so I figured why not.
Had it taken off and de rusted.

They must have been in too much of a hurry..
How its rusting again and its weeping..
About 1 or 2 drops a week.

I hope it diff fluid doesnt get too low..
I'd hate to re-do it at local high prices but might not have a choice

I welcome any comments and thoughts on this issue..

High costs?

Buy this- LubeLocker Differential Gaskets ? OffroadGorilla.com

Buy fluid
Remove diff cover, clean mating surfaces
Reassemble diff cover with gasket
Put in fluid
Drink beer

I wiped it yesterday and today i saw another drop.. so loss could be 1 drop per day..
so its more a leak now rather than a "weep"..
I been driving the car for past 10 weeks.. so i might be 70 drops under filled at this point..

thanks a bunch for the link..!

Check to see if the bolts are tight. They don’t need to be super tight but they may have forgotten to tighten them down after the gasket set.
