I was rear ended 2 months ago on the freeway ( 2006 FX35). The insurance fixed it up and I just noticed some dry leak residue on the subframe differential bushing (see pic).
There is no fresh leak that is showing. Does this mean that all the oil already leaked? I don't notice any problem with the car, i just happened to see it.
Any potential risk if i keep it like that without fixing?
I did some research and it seems i need to change the whole crossmember for ~ $600 parts + another ~ $600 labor.

Is this a common problem or could it be from the accident?

Thanks a lot.

No idea where this is located so I cant check on my car but if this is the under carriage then I think mine is not as clean as this to tell if something is leaking.

I know this is an old,old thread... but mine just started leaking on a 15 year old vehicle...

Is there any COMPELLING reason to even fix this at all. If it all leaks out over time, does it affect anything with the function or usability of the rear differential or will damage anything?

Thank you !

this happened on my g37. I spent a few days stressing about replacement and then forgot about it. Wash the oil off the subframe and you'll never know it was leaking at all.
