    Rear differential breather hose

    Is it possible someone could send me a pic of how the rear differential breather hose is clipped onto the frame? Mine unclipped and I can’t remember how it was done.

    Cheers

    Mine was just laying on the lower chassis. Just route it up the channel and us a zip tie to hold it up (not too tight). I curled the end down after about 6 inch and tied that end. That way its an upside down loop. Nothing can get into the hose and run into the diff !!!

    Not sure how the X machines are routed- but the principle should be to run hose up the closest frame member with some protection inside the member and do not overly squeeze the hose with clamps or zip-ties. put the end as high as you can get it, probably up around the top of the throttle body, as on a Gen 1 that even has a hose gripper in one of the brackets. I would not trust a upside down loop 6" up as the diff creates heat which can cause pressure differentials when diff cools quickly like in a high stream when cold water surrounds diff and can probably suck in water if open end is submersed in the water. Or even worse muddy soup which can clog the hose after it dries and gets hard. My $.02

    The gen 1 goes from the diff to the lower clips and up to higher clips.

    I undid mine after my break in service turned up milky diff fluid. I ran it up the back frame, behind the rear passenger light, and slipped it into a hole in the roll cage. Zip tied it and called it good. No more milky diff fluid.
    Run it, break it, fix it.
