Rear Differential

2009 Outlook XR. Noticed fluid on garage floor. It is leaking form the front of the torgue tube on rear differential where it connects to the drive shaft. Had anyone ever had this issue?

Update on rear differential. I did some research and found that there is a vent on top of the differential that allows air to escape as the fluid warms and pressure buidls up. I checked the vent and found that it was blocked. I was abel to free it up and topped off the fluid. Has been fine ever since. I was luck in that the excess pressure only pushed fuid past the seals and did not permanently damge them. Hope this helps someone out.
