My wonderful Saturn with it's steller ground clearnace was stuck in my driveway. I rocked it to get it moving, during this act apperantly the Differential pin decided to come loose and take out my bellhousing case. I only noticed I had a problem when my car started smoking out the backside while driving. All the trans fluid was running down my exhaust and burning off.
this is a similar pic to how mine looks.


I just found this fix and it consists of JB weld and a thin piece of alumnium. its been working for 6 months for the guy with no problems.

Beware if you own a saturn as the diff pin is a normal break spot if you have wheel spin.:(

I had a Civic do this to me years ago, one of the spider gears made a run for it but only made it halfway through the case!
