Rear Differential Failingrear differential fail failin

Volvo dealer says fluid coming out of overflow hole as diff appears to be overheating and ejecting fluid. Therefore argument from them is that it has failed and needs to be replaced. Cost estimate is $4000 for the part and around $700 in labor (free to me less $100 deductible).
Question: has anyone here seen this problem before?

if all you have into it is 100 bucks, get it all swapped.
if its overheating like that, i wonder if the haldex is going banana's.
the rear only gets 10% power unless slippage is detected

Let me ask my Volvo guys and see what they say.
Thanks for the advice!
