Sounds a little complicated of what I am saying, maybe I could attach a pic. Would that help?
Is it broken? ie the plastic tube broke off in the housing... a pic of the housing and the end of the tube might help...

This.

I use the 1/8" & 1/4" NPT brass barb fittings in my shop all the time. I've put them in axles, transfer cases, & transmissions for venting purposes.

Ok here is a photo of the vent hose that goes into the differential. It will go into the hole just fine but it keeps popping out. Does not appear to be broken or anything and everything in the hole looks just fine. Is this plastic piece just worn out, maybe if I replace it, it will stay? I am thinking about just putting some JB Weld on it to keep it in there. Any ideas?

What Max said...

Yeah probably just worn... Do it right, or don't do it at all. Don't JB it..

Yeah i want to do it right for sure, even if that is replacing the little plastic piece until i can get that hole tapped. Anyone know what that little piece is called? I am on rockauto and cant find any reference to it

I doubt you'll find it anywhere except the dealer.

If it's not physically broken, use a small amount of Ultra Black RTV sealer to hold it in. The Ultra Black RTV holds better than regular RTV in an oily environment.

I would think that jbolty has the best idea. Pull the cover and drill and tap. No more problems.

I would think it will be a easy upgrade.

I agree wholeheartedly.

My suggestion should have stated that it's a temporary fix, and included the advice of tapping the hole on the next service interval.

I had this problem with my rear dana 44, I just pulled the old plastic one out and taped it with a 1/8 tap like stated above. Then I screwed in a 1/4 barbed fitting left over from running the hoses for my oba setup.
