trans?

the frt diff is right by the pass side axle shaft, the stock breather tube is like a question mark shape, and obviously the rear breather is on the axle tube i beleive drivers side. the tcase it just above and to the left of the driveshaft for the front axle

I can't think of the one for the trans either...

I pulled them all out of the different drivetrain I have now, tapped the holes (don't get shavings in there, I took the tranny and T-case apart just barely enough to ensure I didn't) and replaced them with hose barbs, a couple 90° fittings wouldn't hurt either.

IIRC the A4LD and M5OD BOTH do have breathers....the M5OD is a little metal nub (not as big of a deal though as it's a stick) and the A4LD has a hose that routes into the engine bay and then loops back down onto the bell housing (atleast mine did and it's a 94.....part of the "hose" is a metal piece)

Maybe I'm crazy though, but I'm pretty sure it does have one



Keep in mind that if any of your components is leaking fluid out anywhere (axle seals, output shaft seal, etc) that water CAN get in there as well......just a thought

part of the metal line on that trans breather has holes drilled into it for air expansion. if left for long enough water will run down into the line. then just stir and you got yourself a strawberry milkshake :)
I ripped mine off and ran hose WAAAAY up into the engine bay. then you can just top them off with a small engine fuel filter to help keep any crud outta there. thats what I did anyway. good luck!
