    Hello all,
    I am new to TW. I have viewed many threads before joining and I have to say, you guys know your Tacos!

    I bought this truck about 3 weeks ago (2nd Taco) and I just noticed a leak in my drive way. Looks like it is coming from the top of the transfer case near the drive shaft. Has anyone experienced this?

    Also what needs to be fixed? is it a seal? I will probably take it to a shop to get fixed, but wanted to educate myself on the issue before I start writing checks!

    Any idea what the repair costs?

    Thanks Guys,

    Based on the last 3 pics looks like the piece with the golden bolt on top is bent or over tighten, there's a gap or opening at the bottom

    Do you think the Golden bolt is missing a washer or gasket?
