That is completely normal
the hubs are meant to hold vacuum not pressure
that screen is where pressure is vented from
ESOF issues are easy to isolate with a vacuum pump like Mighty vac and a few other procedures

the Esof solenoid valve is a common failure item

Bubbling? What the heck would be bubbling unless there's water in the hub?

water gets on the foam exhaust filter and when you wash a hot hub it bubbles
it's a closed chamber any pressure is supposed to vent from there
if it were a vacuum problem you wouldn't see bubbles ;-)

I think im gonna take a 60$ chance and buy the solenoid....... I was madder than a hornet the other morning when I pulled off the road to look at car for my daughter, in the rain, in my house shoes, taking off hub caps to lock hubs, only to not be able to move enough either way for axel to engage.....
