Yes replace it or make one up. Was the brake fluid coming out of the vent hose? If it was there is also a split in the vent tube nipple and most likely got brake fluid in the differential housing also, if that is the case then the grease will have too be drained, the housing thoroughly cleaned out and refilled with new differential grease.
