My 2010 RAV4 with 53,500 miles was diagnosed with leaking rear axle seals on both sides. Dealer is quoting $587 for replacement. Does that seem appropriate for the job? It looks like the parts are not very expensive and it is almost all labor. Regarding the failure, it appears the differential breather can be problematic. I was thinking of having them replace the breather plug with a new one during the job. Has anybody heard of an alternative to twisting the existing breather occasionally to free it from rust, crud, etc.?
