differential vent

Is there a vent on the rear differential of a 2002 DMEP 3.73? I have a small seepage of gear oil coming from the cover, and wanted to check the vent before I re-seal it. Thanks

Yes I'm not entirely sure how to access the hose but it's in the driver rear quarter panel I believe.

Also are you sure the seepage isn't coming from the pinion seal? I had a battle with mine is why I ask.

The pinion seal looks OK. I looked around under the drivers side, could not find anything resembling a hose.

Thanks for the response
