I pulled the fill plug from my 2007 W20 rear axle to check the fluid level and found a washer stuck to the fill plug...on the inside of the carrier. It's too big to pull out through the filler hole. I'm pretty sure washers aren't supposed to be floating around in the rear end. Any idea where it could have come from? I topped the fluid off and left it in there, attached to the magnet on the fill plug. Not feeling real comfortable about heading out on a planned trip Monday.

Sometimes the guys on the assembly line play pranks on the final customer. Think about all those non-magnetic plugs out there. I worked 18 years in a stamping plant that produced products for Ford Motor Company. I don't like Fords.

You're warranted for 3 years by Dana and I would deal directly with them.

I would contact them. Contact information is available on Dana's website.

Keep us posted on any developments.

HaHa...If somebody did that on purpose I'd like to kick that person in the gut. I'm stressing out here...leaving for Ocean City, MD on Monday, which leaves no time to make an appointment at my nearest Workhorse authorized service center. Oh well, thank goodness for the roadside assistance and powertrain warranty.

Enjoy your trip and don't worry about the washer.

If there's a problem you can cross that bridge when you get to it. In the meantime you go ahead and have a good time.

When you come back have the differential serviced. Workhorse will take care of it.

Possibly something came apart, like one of the carrier bolts. I would take it somewhere.
