Left rear inside on drive axle?

What services were done and who did them?

Could be something simple as too much grease in slack adjusters.

You may need to check and see if brake linings are contaminated also but start with the simple stuff.

If you can post a picture it will help. If its on the outside the seal on the end of the drive shaft is leaking. Inside could be to much grease and they made a mess when servicing it. Or it could be inner wheel seal.

Although I doubt it would be in a wheel, the last leak I could not figure out was from my Aqua Hot...check your hoses.

plugged axle vents

you also need to check the axle vent, some have a hose on vent, bugs will plug the hole. axle will build up heat/pressure and leaks at the weakest areas. some axle vents are a small rattle cap and will plug with road grime. I also checked transmission breather tube and found blockage, installed some window screen and small hose clamp on both tubes no more problems. this was after replacing a wheel seal.
