what to do about smell (8.8 pumpkin related)

not sure if this is gen tech or not, but after acquiring an 8.8 rear end, my room smells like old gear oil. its not too bad but my roommate is complaining. im not going to get it rebuilt just yet (lack of $$), but i would like to know what to do to get rid of or reduce the smell. i tried air freshner spray and threw a few fabric softner sheets in the box with the pumpkin, but it still smells. can i take it to the DIY car wash place and hose out the inside of the carrier with water without damaging anything (the cover is off and the TL is attached inside the case)? throw me some suggestions guys.

Don't spray it off, unless you give it a real good coat of WD-40 afterwards. I'd get some of those super large trashbags, and wrap it a couple times in those, and then air the room out really well, and spray everything down with Febreze. Gear oil has a real strong smell, and it's not easy to get rid of.

The only thing you can do is move it outside. I have had a new container of friction modifier...never opened and double bagged and the smell still gets out

There is no limit to what you can acheive if you don't care who gets the credit.
